Open Call to Artists

Seeking submissions for the inaugural show of RECESS (art space). Submissions should explore artists’ renditions of “recess”: from the deep recesses of the mind and body, to recess as a break in time or playful activity, to works pertaining to economic recession. Interactive work, or otherwise work that engages the public, will be typically encouraged at RECESS, but specifically for this first show in its ability to reflect the playtime of grade school. RECESSimposes no limitation on media type, however, works should be considerate of transportability to make way for alternative purposes and events held in the space. The prospective date of this opening is June 5th, and submissions must be received no later than May 14th.
