open call for submissions
PULSE MIAMI BEACH and returning curators JASMINE WAHI and REBECCA PAULINE JAMPOL, co-founders and directors of PROJECT FOR EMPTY SPACE, have recently announced this year's theme for PLAY:“A VIOLENCE” AT MIAMI BEACH 2018.
There are multiple ways to interpret and contextualize the idea of violence beyond its physical definition; PULSE PLAY 2018's Open Call asks artists to submit work that is oriented around a specific example of what this means to them. Contexts may include: an internalized violence, a trauma, a political violence, a societal violence, a systemic violence, an intimate violence, and more.
Submissions for PULSE PLAY 2018 are now open and being accepted through Submittable. All submissions must include one video or new media piece running no longer than 10 minutes. Submissions should also include the artist’s bio and/or CV, an artwork statement, a supporting still of the submitted work, and the $50 application fee.
All entries are due by Tuesday, September 4th and final selections will be announced in mid-September.
