Calls for Entry

The Golden Record:  Deadline for Submission: May 31,  2018 11:59 PM EST
Seeking entries for The Golden Record, an exhibition inspired by the images and sounds of “The Sounds of Earth,” the recording that is now traveling on the Voyager spacecraft far beyond our galaxy, bearing hundreds of sounds, including the Brandenburg Concerto, whales, footsteps, greetings in 55 languages, thunder, crickets, brainwaves, a heartbeat, and “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground”     by Blind Willie Johnson.  Submit works in all media, including sound, video, performance, technology, and science that reflect on the beautiful and daft hopefulness of this compilation going forth for 40,000 years to be sort of near the closest star.

Curated by Brooke Leeton, Rebecca Brantley, Jon Vogt, and Paula Runyon.

A proposal with links to up to three images, videos, or sound files may be submitted for review; in some cases, additional or different work may be requested for review. All works must be submitted as links in this online entry form. For assistance with submission of images as links, see: http://athica.org/call-for-entries/instructions-for-using-google-drive-to-share-images/

Your entry fee of $10.00 goes to sustain the gallery, which is a 100% community-supported and 100% volunteer organization, providing a space for artists in Athens for over 16 years. ATHICA provides a limited number of fee waivers for those in financial need.

To enter, complete this form and submit $10.00 to info@athica.org via Paypal .  Be sure to include the name and email address used on the submission form in the notes on your PayPal payment (many people have different PayPal names than their real names) so that your payment can be properly registered. Only those entries with paid entry fees will be considered.

Selected artists will be responsible for shipping their work to and from ATHICA.

Artists may work in any or multiple disciplines and traditions, including but not limited to visual, curatorial, musical, performing, written, experimental, cinematic,  digital, and theatrical arts.  The work undertaken in the residency can be in a familiar or new discipline. Residents can work independently, collaborate with others, and/or work as a team. For the Fall 2018 cycle, proposals that focus on presenting a programming series in areas of unmet needs are of particular interest.  Examples might include a series of spoken word events, a documentary film viewing and discussion series, or a set of workshops for high school students.

General Submission Policy

ATHICA issues a general call annually for proposals from curators, collectives & artists with challenging, progressive or innovative projects and cohesive bodies of work.  Entry fees go to support the operations of the ATHICA gallery.  We are able to accommodate large-scale sculpture and/or installation. Projects that depend on darkness or enclosed spaces are not advisable, unless the artist can supply labor and materials to create internal spaces in an open and naturally lit space. The ATHICA floorplan can be downloaded here.

Proposals are reviewed by the exhibitions committee for possible consideration in the programming for the coming year.  Artists’ submissions may be retained for a number of years until an appropriate project arises.  We make every effort to provide a response to every submission to specific and general calls.  If you have a question or concern, please contact us via email to info@athica.org, as we are unable to return phone calls in response to inquiries.
