Art in Odd Places call for proposals (deadline May 30)

Deadline: May 30, 2009

Art in Odd Places (AiOP) 2009: SIGN invites proposals from visual and
performing artists interested in the spectacle of daily urban life. In its
5th edition, AiOP takes place on 14th Street, NYC from October 1-26, 2009.
We encourage artists and performers to explore its length and diversity,
tease out its history and intervene imaginatively to encourage visitors,
workers and inhabitants to discover it anew. AiOP 2009 is inspired by the
many meanings of SIGN: Direction. Ban. Authority. Solidarity. Advertisement.
Ownership. Gesture. Enticement. Omen. Signature. Trace. We are looking for
work that is as much a sign of the times as a signpost to possibilities. Our
interests include but are not limited to artist proposals for walks, tours
