Call for Interactive Art: FIGMENT Oakland 2018
Deadline: September 1st, 2018, 11:59pm PST
From their call: FIGMENT Oakland is now accepting interactive project submissions for our September 29th event. FIGMENT is a free all ages outdoor art festival taking place in Oakland’s Mosswood Park. We are dedicated to participatory and interactive art that transcends disciplines. We provide a unique opportunity to showcase pieces that don’t fit into traditional exhibition spaces. Pieces that are too hands-on, too participatory, too site specific, too experimental, too messy or loud or playful or large. This can take any number of forms and speak to any number of disciplines and practices. We would love to discuss how your interactive project could work at our event.
Is it interactive? Interactive or Participatory art blurs the lines between the artist, the art, and people engaging with the art. We look for art that encourages people to play, dance, sing, create, engage, experiment, and explore their environment. Theatre, dance, music, performance art, games, creative costuming, workshops and activities are all common genres found at FIGMENT. Three dimensional sculptural installations are also common at FIGMENT, as the participant’s experience of the piece alters as he or she moves around it.
We generally do not accept “wall art” such as finished paintings or photography and do not have space to display such works. Artists working in those genres are encouraged to find a way to engage FIGMENT participants in creating such works, displaying such works inside a larger sculptural installation, collaborating with a performance art event, or creating some other participatory experience that involves such works.
