The Paseo Project (NM), International Call for Artists for PASEO 2019: Water/Culture

Deadline: May 25th, 2019

From their call: The PASEO 2019 Water/Culture call is seeking artists to bring visibility to Northern New Mexico’s water culture and issues. Working with artists we wish to create more inclusive and imaginative planning processes, while seeking to provide benefits to the community through artistic installations and designs and educational opportunities.  We are seeking proposals for installations to creatively expand public knowledge and appreciation of the acequia networks downtown. Selected art activations will vary in media, scale and programming. The goal is to highlight the acequia network for the benefit of the local community and wider audience of visitors traversing the downtown. These installations will be featured at the PASEO 2019 festival, September 13th and 14th , with the opportunity for pre and post installation capacities. All these of the installations will be considered as an implementation for permanent installations.

The PASEO is a festival dedicated to bringing the art of installation, performance and projection to the streets of Taos, New Mexico. This two-day outdoor event, set in the high desert of Taos, New Mexico, is in its sixth year, and scheduled for Friday and Saturday evening, September 13rd and 14th, 2019.

The PASEO seeks work that is immersive, participatory, and/or will make a dynamic impact within the Taos Historic District during this evening festival, scheduled to start at sunset and runs to 11pm. PASEO 2018 brought over 6,000 people to the streets of Taos to experience this annual celebration. For 2019 we are excited to enter the second phase of Acequia Aqui, in which the Paseo Project will build on the lessons and information gathered in phase 1 of the project to implement artistic projects that illuminate, celebrate, and educate the public about the historic downtown acequia network. Maps, essays, and Phase 1 materials of Acequia Aqui can be found here. https://paseoproject.org/acequia-aqui/

Selected art activations will vary in media, scale and programming. The goal is to highlight the acequia network for the benefit of the local community and wider audience of visitors traversing the downtown. These installations will be featured at the PASEO 2019 festival, September 13 th and 14 th , with the opportunity for pre and post installation capacities.
