Open Lot: Call for Artists and Writers - Translation - Deadline 3-19-10


Curated by Meagan Rust, Richard Harper, and Open Lot

The goal of Translation is to highlight the process of interpretation from textual to visual, and from visual to textual. A dialogue between visual artists and writers, the show will explore how different types of art can influence and interact with each other.

The curators of Translation have selected two poems, a sculpture, and a painting that will be included in the show. Open Lot is currently seeking both writers and visual artists to craft responses to these preselected pieces. Visual artists are asked to create a response or interpretation to one of the written pieces, and writers are asked to create a response or interpretation to one of the visual pieces. All media are welcome to apply. Please limit poetry and prose to 500 words. Multiple submissions are welcome. There is a $10 submission fee for each submission to this show.

The submission deadline is March 19 at 5pm. Selected submissions will be announced Friday, March 26th. The opening reception will be April 16th from 6-9, with an after party following.

Please visit the Open Lot website,, to view our preselected pieces and to submit your work.
