iD+consonni in Sondika 09, results

iD+consonni in Sondika 09

In late 2008, the art producer consonni and Idensitat launched the project iD+consonni as a collaboration extending Idensitat’s territories and bringing about a new way to work with artists. In total, 203 proposals were received from 38 countries

There is one winner to develop the project over 2009 and five special mentions which implied the chance to intervene in public space in Sondika from a variety of perspectives and tools. These five proposals will not be developed but will be made public through consonni and Idensitat’s websites and other communication devices which are to be approved by the artists, such as a future publication.

In search of To Do Lists

This was just emailed to me:

I am writing at this time to ask if you would participate in my art project by sending me the old “to do “ lists that you generate, as opposed to throwing them away.

I will be one of the 180+ artists who will be exhibiting their art at ARTRALA, a three day art happening in May 2009 that will take place at the Pier Pointe Residencies that is being developed on Washington Blvd in Venice Beach, CA. Deadline to submit is April 30th.

For my project, I will cover one of the rooms with “to-do” lists and I need as much variety as possible. Laundry lists, shopping lists, new years resolutions, short term lists of daily activities or long term goal achievement oriented lists, personal or professional lists are all welcome.
