Call for Proposals - Visualeyez, Edmonton (Deadline October 18; source: Latitude

The fourth annual VISUALEYEZ will occur 23 to 31 May 2003 and will be presented
in site specific locations throughout the city of Edmonton.

The curatorial theme is the misplacement of intimacy.

Is it safer to connect with our romantic selves in an internet chat room? Do we
live in a world where sympathy has been replaced with a more distanced empathy
and therefore collectively mourn dead celebrities that we have never met?  This
detachment creates a situation where we can instantly share the same emotional
moment as millions of other viewers but creates a type of formulaic

Artists will be selected based on how their work and/or practice
explores ideas that are relevant to the curatorial theme of the
misplacement of intimacy. Visualeyez 2003 will question if we have
misplaced our capacity for intimate relationships in a world where we would
rather interface with someone through voice mail, icq (instant messaging
services) and email than actual physical interactions where we touch real flesh?
Technology is often promoted to facilitate connection; however, it attempts to
provide this intimacy through an absence of real physicality.

The official deadline is 18 October 2002 (postmarked) and the proposal
should include:

= A detailed project description or description of your work
= Artist statement
= Curriculum vitae and biography
= Video or audio tape, slides (max. 10), or other documentation of
previous work
= Technical needs and other assistance required
= Return postage (if you want things back)

Send proposals to:
 Todd Janes, Curator
C/o Latitude 53 Society of Artists
10137 ? 104 Street
Edmonton, Alberta
