ALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: FADO’s Emerging Artists Series 2014
Deadline date: December 15, 2013;
Co-presented with Xpace Cultural Centre
Curated by Kate Barry
Durational performance is mode of live art where the artist works directly with the medium of time. Over the course of
hours, days or longer the performer and the audience can experience a physical, mental, spiritual and/or emotional
transformation. Durational performance functions to bring the performer and the audience into the moment; time is made
palatable and visceral. Artists like Teching Hsieh, Alastair MacLennan, and most famously, Marina Abramovic, demonstrate
how durational performance art can use mental and physical endurance to challenge the commoditization of art by
offering an experience of art that is ephemeral by nature.
FADO is seeking proposals of durational performance works from emerging artists to be presented in our 2014 edition of
the Emerging Artists Series, entitled 11:45PM. Performances should be a minimum of 6-hours and a maximum of 4-days.
FADO and Xpace define emerging artists as those who are 2-3 years out of school, are at the beginning stages of their
careers, and have not yet had the opportunity for a professional presentation of their work.
The deadline for submissions is December 15, 2013.
Submissions should include:
-brief biographical information
-description of proposed work
-documentation of previous work (maximum of 10 images, and / or 2-3 short documentation videos to a maximum of 5
