CALL FOR ARTISTS
ka·nei·see | collective and Cat Call Choir seek art installations inspired by gender-based harassment. Selected works will be on display at Z Space at 450 Florida Street in San Francisco March 7-10, 2019 as a pre and post-show gallery exhibition for Nevertheless, an evening-length performance that surveys the field of gender-based harassment from the subtle to the violent, in a marriage of song and dance, comedy and horror.
Directors Tanya Chianese (ka·nei·see | collective) and Heather Arnett (Cat Call Choir) are interested in visual and multimedia works and collections from artists of all genders. Our goal is to bridge creative mediums and communities, as well as learn more about and support artists who are exploring gender discrimination, harassment, and sexual violence in their work. Nevertheless is fun and hilarious, but also emotional, personal and necessarily crude due to its subject matter. We are interested in similar juxtapositions for the gallery portion of this project.
There is no stipend for this opportunity, however artists are welcome to sell their work and/or retail, but must accompany their art each night if that is the case. This project has the potential of reaching 972 audience members, and artists will be listed in the program and promoted on social media.
The gallery will be curated by the aforementioned directors, as well as participating visual artists Sarey Ruden (sareytales.com) and Allison Bouganim (allisonbouganim.com). Depending on proposals received, we are looking to present 3-5 artists’ work. Local and out-of-town artists are welcomed to apply.
