ERI 8 Call for Submissions
Eyelevel is seeking printed matter and artist’s multiples for Eyelevel Reshelving Initiative 8 (ERI 8). Eyelevel Re-shelving Initiative is a biennial exhibition of artist’s books, multiples, and printed matter. This year’s exhibition theme is INNER/OUTER SPACE. Considering the mobile and site-responsive nature of printed matter, the exhibition will exist both inside and outside of Eyelevel’s physical home. Submissions will be displayed at Eyelevel as well as in various locations across the city, such as waiting rooms, cafes, retail outlets, restaurants, and doctor’s offices. A map of offsite ERI locations will lead viewers around the city and back to Eyelevel, where the rest of the exhibition will be hosted in Eyelevel’s bookstore and project space.
Following the theme, submissions are invited, though not required, to consider the following ideas:
Privacy and surveillance
Worlds, galaxies and universes, real or imagined
Temporality and futurity
Borders, boundaries, and blockades
Material limitations and possibilities
Introversion and extroversion
Personal and political space
Irl and online communities
Movement, affect, and the body
ERI is not a juried exhibition, and all submitted work will be accepted to ERI 8 and the Eyelevel Bookstore. Work on display will be available for purchase throughout the exhibition during regular hours.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE APRIL 6, 2018
Along with the physical work, submissions to ERI 8 must include:
· description of the work (max 100 word)
