Moogfest Calls to Artists for Public Art Installations
Asheville’s Moogfest recently unveiled its new plans for a five-day festival coming this April that will feature an expanded focus on the intersection of art and technology, including public art exhibitions. To meet this end, Moogfest and The Media Arts Project have issued an invitation to artists, musicians, designers, architects, engineers, innovators, scientists, and students to submit their proposals for public exhibitions to be included within Moogfest 2014’s festival grounds.
Participants are tasked with creating a structure or installation that “embodies the interdisciplinary philosophy and innovation that Moog exemplifies” through the use of multimedia and mult-sensory experience that engage the viewer. A jury of MAP members will review and evaluate proposals, which will be selected based on the following criteria:
- Feasibility and structural integrity for public use
- Appropriateness to legacy and mission of Moog Music and The Media Arts Project
- Innovation and interdisciplinary approach to making
- Rapidly deployable (must be constructed in less than 24 hours)
Entry is open to any individual or team 18 and over by the end of registration on December 29th, 2013. Entrants selected will assemble their exhibit at Moogfest in addition to receiving $1000. More detailed information on submissions is available at Moogfest.com/MAP. For more information on Moogfest 2014, go to Moogfest.com.
