According to recent news media, Detroit, Michigan may be a dying city ready to shut down and auction off their museum art collections–yet in 2014 artists are invited to submit to this open call—
DLECTRICITY is back and ready to see more of your work! For two electrifying nights in 2012, DLECTRICITY brought thousands of people into Midtown Detroit to experience 35 projects by local, national and international artists. 25 of those projects were selected from an open call. This fall, DLECTRICITY will again transform Midtown Detroit with site-specific installations of light, video, performance, interactive engineering and nonconformist architecture. From lasers to dance, robots to 3D mapping, they want to show what you create and challenge you to animate historic buildings, turn streets into oceans – the city landscape is your canvas.
DLECTRICITY is looking for projects that will activate the outdoor, nighttime landscape of Midtown Detroit’s Woodward Corridor including:
+ Light art
+ Video art
+ 3D video mapping projects
+ Multimedia installations
+ Projects that use technology for interactivity and community engagement
+ Works that use mobile platforms (smartphones, tablets)
+ Performance (art, dance, theater, music)
+ Talks and workshops
+ Kid-friendly and/or educational
+ The unexpected
Accepted proposals will be funded up to $2,500. Artists will also receive a $1,000 honorarium.
