SUBMISSION CALL OUT: Complot 11
Initially, Complot was an inter-university project that aimed to stimulate collaboration between visual art students and those who study art history. This project, founded in 2003 at UQAM, speaks to a need which is not necessarily met in the university milieu: to connect theory and artistic practice. For the last ten years, each Complot cohort has been based around a theme, and has resulted in a group exhibition along with a publication showcasing the author’s texts.
After 10 years in existence, a critical reflection has emerged. The new team is ready to reconsider the structure and content of Complot: the roles of its participants and the modes of presentation of their work. The project, lasting one year, will culminate in a final presentation of the research in September 2014. It could take the form of workshops, of interventions outside the gallery walls or of a more conventional exhibition. Complot 11 strongly believes that the result should correspond to the interests of the collective, in addition to the individual roles of participants.
*Contrary to previous cohorts, the practice of teaming up one author and one artist will not necessarily be continued.
*Additionally, this call for submissions is not based around a common theme.
