Deadline: November 4, 2019
Filthy Bodies is the inaugural event for Art Meat: a quarterly live art party presented by The Orange Girls that brings radical artists together to imagine alternative futures. Filthy Bodies will explore filth as a metaphor for the people deemed disposable in our capitalist society. “Filth” is excess; oversexed, overproduced, overused and worn out. And we are lusting for more of it! This event will reimagine filth to flaunt our dirty bits and savour the succulent nastiness of our own excess.
Are you a creator, mover, thinker, or general reveller in the filth of life? We are seeking fellow artists who are interested in creating an interactive environment of filth. Filthy Bodies will be curated to tell one story – the story of glorious filth – through various artistic mediums and from various perspectives.
A partygoer enters the space. They see raunchy videos, art installations, and roving artists. Every 15 minutes, the atmosphere hones in on a performance. When the piece finishes the performers dissolve back into the party.
Proposals for all types of art are encouraged, including: performance art, circus arts, sculpture, or anything your filthy brain can imagine. Partygoers will be encouraged to interact with all of the pieces. Artists must be willing to collaborate with the lead artists in order to create a cohesive filthy experience. Apply with an original proposal or an existing piece of work.
Not quite sure what we’re looking for yet? Here are some examples of ideas:
- A film starring trash
- A burlesque performance flaunting your kink
- An installation celebrating bodily fluids
It is integral to the success of this event that we include art from diverse perspectives. Therefore, we encourage proposals from queer people, trans people, people with disabilities, people of colour, womxn, and any other people who identify as part of an equity seeking group. Unfortunately, the venue is not fully accessible as it has two steps to get to the front door and the washroom is located in the basement.
Selected artists will be invited to attend 1 meeting prior to the event and should be available from 6 p.m. until late on Friday, December 6, 2019. Apply as an individual or a group. Each submission that is selected will receive a share of the profits from the party.
