Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

What Makes this event different?

[SHIFT:ibpcpa] is the only biennale fully dedicated to promoting performance art which contains participatory and collaborative elements. We are an experimental art initiative based in Scotland which accepts proposals from students and professional artists alike.

[SHIFT:ibpcpa] is currently looking for proposals from fine art performance artists using participation and collaboration in their practice.

SHIFT: The International Biennale of Performance, Collaborative and Participatory Arts aka [SHIFT:ibpcpa] is a non-profit art initiative with a specific focus on performance, collaborative and participatory art practices.

[SHIFT:ibpcpa] provides an opportunity for fine art-based performance artists to enhance their practice, theoretical and critical approach, within the current and future context of performance art. For this reason, [SHIFT:ibpcpa] specifically focuses on the untapped potential of performance, collaborative and participatory art.

The biennale lasts from June 2020 until August 2020 and is networked. Meaning work can exist within the digital and/or physical domains where necessary… where networked and nomadic projects traverse the hypothetical space and physical place. Submitted projects must include performance art that contains either collaborative or participatory elements.

Open to students and professional artists. We are interested in the intersection between levels of professionality.

Apply via [SHIFT:ibpcpa] website.
