ARTIST CALL OUT
tactileBOSCH presents Under the Counter Culture an immersive, site responsive, multimedia programme celebrating the interconnection between art and nightculture. UTCC takes place across multiple venues presenting exhibitions, events, performances, screenings and participatory workshops
Night Culture has long been at the forefront of avant-garde arts practice and the aesthetic and atmosphere of club culture has informed and inspired creative activity, individual and collective action where inhibitions and expectations are deconstructed, revealing a platform for free expression, experimentation, participation and play.
Artists are asked to submit work that explores and celebrates all aspects of night culture and the counter cultural and non normative activities that it inspires. We shine a light on the value of grass roots night spaces to our urban landscpape and their ability to create action environments that encourage participation, invent new cultural forms and build new connections and their efforts to build unique platforms for inclusion, connection and presence in a world of increasing hostility and disconnect.
tactileBOSCH invites submissions from both emerging and established artists. Artists and musicians from all mediums are invited to apply, however live work, performance, audio visual and installation is particularly encouraged. Opportunities exist for large scale site responsive work, artist residencies, coaching and mentoring. Artists will be offered a fee as well as curatorial and technical support.
Please send us a description of the artwork (200 words max),
4 images of artworks (1MB per image max, along with title, date, media, dimensions / duration etc), artist statement (200 words max.)
Please email to [email protected]
Deadline 6th of September 2019
Under the Counter Culture will take place from 24th of October until 30th of November 2019.
