2018 THEME: UNBOUND
The theme for Nuit Rose 2018 is Unbound. Artists are invited to creatively interpret, explore, and respond to this theme in their proposed projects.
Examples could include:
Projects that explore ways in which art can challenge existing conventions, norms, classifications, confines, and limitations
Projects that celebrate freedom from limiting forces, including physical borders or oppressive systems
Projects that show us ways to overcome boundaries and barriers
Projects with expansive vision, or that incorporate concepts of infinity or oneness
ELIGIBLE WORKS/ PROJECTS
Applicants may submit work in any medium; two dimensional works, sculpture, installation, screen-based works, new media, performance, multi-media and site-specific works. Works and projects intended for either indoor or outdoor presentation are welcome. We strongly encourage artists and organizations to apply who reflect diversity and intersectionality. This includes: sexuality, gender, culture, race, ethnicity, creed, religion, age, ability, and other aspects of humanity.
A jury of artists and curators will evaluate the proposals and make recommendations for selection of works to be included in the festival. The jury will evaluate proposals using the following criteria:
Project viability and feasibility
Capacity for the work to engage communities
Capacity for the work to be interactive or relational
Representation of diversity and intersectionality (sexuality, gender, culture, race, ethnicity, creed, religion, age, ability, and other dimensions of diversity)
Representation of queer, 2-spirited or trans culture, history, theory or perspective
Representation of local and/or global social and cultural issues (including critical issues in art-making)
Alignment with the Nuit Rose 2018 theme: Unbound
