Video Art in Public Space

Call for Proposals

Atopia is accepting proposals for the Vitrine Project. Artists of all lands may apply.

Vitrine is a platform for experimenting with video art in public space. It offers the artists and the public a unique opportunity to engage with multi-screen video works right on the side of the street. Every winter artists from around the world illuminate the Vitrine with new video works. Sannergata is a busy route for traffic moving in and out of Oslo, and the Vitrine has the potential of reaching thousands of viewers everyday.

Vitrine is aimed at exploring the potentials of multi-screen video works in public space and the notions of transience – moving images and moving public.

We seek proposals in the form of video works that are innovative in their approach and daring in their exploration.

Sound is not an option for Vitrine and we prioritize non-violent imagery.

The fourth season of Atopia’s Vitrine will run from Nov. 2011 to Feb. 2012.

The four selected proposals will each receive an award of €1,000.

Deadline: 26 August 2011
