Group Exhibition Narrative and Identity, NY

Deadline: 15/09/2010

The AC Institute’s mission is to advance the understanding of the arts through investigation, research and education. It is a lab and forum for experimentation and critical discussion.

There is an open call for their group exhibition about narrative and identity.

Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
Oscar Wilde

For the first group show of 2011, February 3 – March 12, curated by Nicole Bebout and Sonja Hofstetter, The AC Institute seeks to investigate the ways in which narrative is used by contemporary artists to construct or demolish our ideas of self and other. Whether through guerrilla-like disruption, ambiguity or fantasy inspired story-telling, the AC Institute is seeking artists who see narrative as essential to their artistic identity.

Focusing on experimental, installation, and new media work, AC seeks submissions from contemporary artists, and others, working in any medium. Artists are encouraged to submit work either already existing or as-yet unrealized that addresses the interlocking questions of narrative and identity; either at the level of social practice, contemporary representation, or both.

Email submissions should be sent to by September 15th, 2010. Please include the following in the body of your message (not as attachments):

  • A short description and/or images of the work you are proposing for our spaces
  • Your standard CV and contact information
  • Links to your website or other sites where materials could be viewed, if possible
