Lanfranco Aceti and Richard Rinehart and will be presented online 
from June 1, 2015 to July 15, 2015. The call is opened to exploring a

from documentation of previous installation to artworks that present 
public places interventions, from gay activism to personal and 
intimate artworks. This call is for artworks that can and/or are made
