I am forwarding this from another list:
Free MetAtHome. Open request to New Yorkers (or you can pretend) for illustrations to be included in a small Xeroxed publication as part of the ...Is This Free exhibition at NURTUREart, Brooklyn, New York. Exhibition is open now, this piece will be included in the August 31 opening (through September 22). Imagine, what if the Metropolitan Museum of Art dissolves and its collection is sent on rotation throughout the homes of all New
Yorkers. A museum of exchange where nothing sits for very long. With about 3,000,000 NYC households and a collection of over two million, that means you get eight pieces a year for a month each (leave the shipping up to us), but what will they do with the building? For now, a piece of your choice gets to live at or travel through -- your home. Sit in your living room with a Vermeer, brush your teeth to a Nigerian funerary figurine, slip off to sleep next to a 600 BC Egyptian casket. Awake and toast an anthropomorphic Mayan deity. Illustrate this.
A drawing, collage, or however two-dimensional, please be aware it will be produced in a black and white photocopy. Take a copy of the fanzine publication at the show, and I will put a file online for you to download and make your own. What will be published depends on scale of entries. If you forgot what the Met is and has, see this introductory Trailer: youtube.com/watch?v=RAuiUxIBIcA. Virtually browse the
Met collection. Visit and go pedestal shopping. 1000 Fifth Avenue (at 82nd Street). Submission Parameters: Scanned 8.5 by 5.5 300 DPI Tiff or Jpeg images. Name of the artwork, your name and neighborhood.
Deadline: August 15 (earlier the better) to: carrie at dashow dot net.
