Art(ists) On the Verge - NEW new media art funding

| 1 Comment

post from Diane:

Steve Dietz who conceived of the current UnConvention , Zero One, YProductions, and was the founding Director of New Media Initiatives at the Walker Art Center, including Gallery 9 , has launched Northern Lights and the new initiative Art(ists) On the Verge. AoV was made possible with generous funding from the Jerome Foundation and the support of Forecast Public Art as the fiscal agent.

The call for submissions is here.

I talked with Steve about the working definition of emerging artist: "Regarding emerging status, the primary criterion is exhibition history. If you've had two solo exhibitions outside of the Twin Cities, it's highly unlikely that you would be eligible." Steve encourages artists to contact him with any questions.
