OPEN CALL: Fluid Matters

Be a part of the BAD Award exhibition at MU

Open call: MU Artspace invites you to submit your idea for a new work, or description of your existing work of art or design that you think fits this concept. Some support for production is available for new work. MU will accept submissions to Fluid Matters through October 8, 2016.

Working Title: Fluid Matters
Exhibition dates: Dec 2 - Feb 15
Location: MU, Torenallee 40-06, 5617 Eindhoven

Description: This exhibition will explore the theme of fluidity inside and between bodies, cells, and substances. The processes of life are characterized by continuous (ex)changes and are often embodied in liquid form, flowing throughout complex and microscopic environments; yet, these phenomena often allude perception. They await the intervention of artists and designers, to bring them into the realm of the observable, lend them meaning, highlight their beauty, or find their material potential at different scales.

Fluid Matters will present the works of the winners of the Bio Art and Design Award 2016, currently under development, alongside several recent works that share a dimension of fluidity. The works may reflect on, demonstrate, or even contest advances in life sciences research. Works might also feature experimental design approaches informed by recent research on the body and the fluids within it.

To submit: please send a description of your project (maximum 300 words), along with images or links to video, and a current CV to mu@mu.nl. Please limit the message size to 5Mb. Include the title ‘Fluid Matters Proposal’ in the subject line.
