Call for Exhibition Proposals

Art Interactive in Cambridge, MA, invites curators to submit exhibition
proposals for the 2005-06 season. Art Interactive's mission is to
provide a public forum that fosters self-expression and human
interaction through the development and exhibition of art that is
contemporary, experimental, and participatory.  Previous exhibitions
have included Engaging Characters (Kathy Brew, Curator), Do-It-Yourself
Fluxus (Midori Yoshimoto, Curator), and eVolution (Christiane Paul,
Curator). To review these and other Art Interactive exhibitions, please
visit: http://www.artinteractive.org/show_previous.php.

Art Interactive encourages proposals that presents works in any media,
but each proposal must address the goals described in the curatorial
mission statement.  Please note that Art Interactive discourages artists
who are acting as curators from submitting proposals that include their
own work.  To read the curatorial mission statement, please visit:
