What Makes this event different?

This year, AiOP will present a concurrent exhibition at Westbeth Gallery featuring works by artists in the festival. We are the only grassroots public art festival that has been covered by major art magazines such as Hyperallergic and Artnet.

Art in Odd Places (AiOP) 2018: BODY curated by Katya Grokhovsky invites proposals
for its fourteenth annual public art and performance festival taking place along 14th
Street in Manhattan, NY — from Avenue C to the Hudson River — and coinciding group
exhibition at Westbeth Gallery. BODY will present visual and performance art projects
by women, female-identifying, and non-binary artists. AiOP welcomes innovative,
interdisciplinary, and hybrid projects including installation, sculpture, performance,
video, sound, and others, which will be presented simultaneously in the gallery and
the public realm. We encourage projects that explore the locations’ history and
heterogeneity, and that actively engage the public, both inside and on the street.

The theme BODY explores agency, politics, and status of the ‘other’ in an urban
environment. Selected artists will challenge notions and constructs of gender, age,
beauty, contemporary ideas of self, death, sex, viscera, health, otherness, body image,
language, memory, belonging. Artists will stage multimedia interdisciplinary projects,
movement and participatory works, artifacts, and ephemera that resist categorization
and investigate issues of exclusion, displacement, and absence.
