OPENING DATE: Monday, January 26/09
CLOSING DATE: Saturday, March 21/09 (midnight)
Paul is currently attending “The Mountain School”, an alternative art school in Los Angeles, and will be in term from January to March 2009. All this alternative learning has us thinking about going off-the-grid with our education, doing some home schooling and then some re-tooling. As a result, we're grooving on ideas related to self-taught modes of reading, writing and arithmetic, and maybe even repeating Foundation year just for fun (not).
Luckily, much of Paul's practice involves collaborative activities and, quote unquote, an interest in multidisciplinary, social and alternative pedagogical practices. Artists are invited to submit up to 3 works for consideration in response to the concept: “Community and Collaboration as a Form of Pedagogy”.
What we mean by community and collaboration (and pedagogy) is collective methods of learning and creating. We're thinking this encompasses peer pressure, dating, father-daughter days, Rotarians, elder worship and good old fashioned “keeping up with the Joneses”.
1) Your entries will be juried blind which is going to level the playing field - Paul won't see any names or resumes when he is selecting the work.
2) There is a small administrative fee to submit which allows us to make this project happen ($40). This is submitted through Pay Pal.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Sherri, Luisa, Jen and Paul.
