Wanna be in a museum show?
Is this an asskicking blog or what?
I'm about to give all of you resume-builders an opportunity to be included in a museum show.
Not just any museum, but the museum that bewitched me -- when I was a kid in Brooklyn -- into loving art.
This March, the Brooklyn Museum, is inviting photographers to electronically submit [sorry about the split infinitive] digital images for a unique upcoming photography exhibition called Click! A Crowd-Curated Exhibition.
The first part of Click! is the submission process that ends this March 31st. Details can be found at this website.
Aren't you glad that you read this blog?
Click! takes its inspiration from the critically acclaimed book The Wisdom of Crowds, in which New Yorker business and financial columnist James Surowiecki asserts that a diverse crowd is often wiser at making decisions than expert individuals. The exhibition will explore that idea in the context of visual art, inviting visitors to an online forum to evaluate the artists’ submissions.
Those submissions chosen by the online audience will be in the Museum exhibition, opening June 27, 2008.
The public will choose an art exhibition? There must be something illegal here...
