A Call for Art for a MAJOR EXHIBITION of Contemporary Flux - Work .... Please consider sending for this exhibition. This exhibit may tour to additional locations as well ... that's still in the planning stages. Artworks may be returned at your cost after exhibition, or you can request that the work become part of the permanent collection of the Networker Archive in Chicago. Also.... We will be doing a performance Night on March 15th in conjunction with this show .... If there is any way you can be there to perform, Let me know. FLUXJOB call for artists – due December 31, 2013 Minnesota Center for Book Arts (MCBA) seeks art for inclusion in a curated exhibition that will feature contemporary artists working in the spirit of Fluxus. In the 1960s, George Maciunas urged a small group of artists to purge the world of bourgeois sickness and dead art. The result was Fluxus, a non-movement that expanded the definitions of what art can be. Fluxjob will be an exploration of contemporary artists who continue to create interdisciplinary anti-art that is ephemeral, inexpensive, and interactive. The exhibition will be presented in MCBA’s main gallery February 7 to July 6, 2014. All media and formats are welcome. This includes, but is not limited to: offset publications, magazines, assemblings, zines, boxed sets, games, posters, prints, mail art, drawings, digital works, democratic multiples, performance scores and artists’ books in their many forms. There is no entry or participation fee. Selected artists will be responsible for all shipping costs. The exhibition is being co-curated by Jeff Rathermel, MCBA’s Executive Director and noted Fluxus artist, publisher and performer Keith Buchholz. There is no entry or participation fee. Selected artists will be responsible for all shipping costs.
