Some Assembly Required


Some Assembly Required
Jurors: Mike Arcega, Artist and Steven Wolf of Steven Wolf Fine Arts

This project invites artists to submit work that requires assembly. This phrase is open to interpretation. It can be read as a play on the word assemblage, that the artist needs to assemble his or her work in some way. It can also be read, perhaps with the writings of Alain Robbe-Grillet in mind, to suggest that the work must be assembled by the viewer in order to have meaning. The jurors hope to provoke a broad array of submissions in all media with diverse content, including both objects and performance.
