Open Call for Art/Technology Work

The Boston Cyberarts Gallery (Boston, MA), a non-profit space focusing on new and experimental media, is organizing a juried exhibition of art/technology art to open Saturday May 25 through Sunday July 1. We are looking for work that pairs art and technology in a thought provoking and visually engaging manner. We’re particularly interested in pieces that use technology to facilitate art, or art to observe technology from a novel perspective, preferably some combination of the two. Boundary-pushing is desired and respected. Works that address, rather than use, technology on a conceptual level may also be considered.

The deadline for submissions is midnight ET (GMT-6:00), Sunday, April 1, 2018.

Judging will be finalized by April 10. Opening Reception will be 6-8 PM, Friday, May 25, 2018. The show will be up for 5 weeks, ending on Sunday, July 1, 2018.

Submission Guidelines:

  • The quality of your submission is the single most important factor when judging the work. Please include images, video and complete textual descriptions. Please explain your thinking in a clear and succinct manner.
  • Pieces should be reliable, durable, and safe.
  • The Cyberarts Gallery will comfortably house moderately-sized artworks and installations, but space is somewhat limited. Please limit your proposed work a maximum size of 8*8*8 feet (2.4*2.4*2.4 meters).
  • The gallery is located adjacent to a public train station and there is a lot of ambient noise from the trains and the station PA system. As such it is not suitable for some audio works.
  • Travel and shipping: Artists are responsible for delivery, pickup, and installation of all work. If you are not in the Boston area and you need us to install your work, you may mail your ready-to-install work to us in a secure container but you will need to pay for all shipping and insurance, both to and from the gallery. Transit to and from the exhibition is the responsibility of the artist.
  • Artwork accepted for the show must work as described in the proposal. Artwork that differs significantly from the submission in form or function may be removed from the show at the discretion of the curators and gallery owner.
  • Artists will be expected to be available for technical support of their work if that is required.

To submit work complete the submission for below and email additional materials according to the instructions. Multiple submissions are fine, but generally only one piece per person will be accepted. You may submit a proposal for a piece yet to be realized, but the likelihood of its completion will be considered during judging.
