InLight Richmond 2017 Call for Proposals

Event History

Each year, InLight Richmond features performances, sculpture, interactive projects, and video that illuminate pathways, sidewalks, walls, green spaces, and kicks off with the Community Lantern Parade. InLight was started in 2008 on the occasion of 1708 Gallery's 30th birthday. This was the birth of a free public art exhibition that offers Richmond the opportunity to engage with contemporary art beyond gallery walls and to experience the city in unexpected and new ways.

1708 Gallery invites international and national artists working in all disciplines and media, including performance art, to submit proposals for our 10th annual InLight Richmond.
InLight 2017 is scheduled for Friday, November 3, 2017, from 7pm to midnight, in Richmond’s Arts and Culture District. InLight is a public exhibition of light-based artworks—sculptures, installations, multi-media and interactive projects, videos and projections, performances and a Community Lantern Parade.
InLight 2017 takes the Electric Carnival as its inspiration, a street festival that enlivened Broad Street in 1901. The Electrical Carnival featured a replica of the Eiffel Tower that was illuminated remotely by President Roosevelt via a telegraph key from the White House.
Proposals for InLight 2017 should be inspired by, involve, investigate, or interpret themes of light. Think of light as a medium to light as a concept. 1708 Gallery encourages artists to propose projects that consider themes that are central to the Electric Carnival— technology, globalism, carnivals, but existing work will be considered.
DEADLINE TO APPLY: Midnight (EST), Monday, July 31, 2017
Potential sites for installations and performances include façades, pathways, and other walls, green spaces, sidewalks, trees, and more. A limited number of interior sites may also be available. Artists can propose a specific site for pre-existing and site-responsive works. If your work is site-specific please indicate that it is on your entry form. 1708 Gallery reserves the right to make final assignments.
The juror for 2017 is Nat Trotman, Curator of Performance and Media at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
