Opportunities for Artists at Montgomery College

EXHIBITION OPPORTUNITY: Themed exhibition series
Interactivity: Sight and Sound

Colored hearing: sounds, music or voices seen as colors is referred to as synesthesia. Synesthetic art refers to multi-sensory experiments in the genres of visual art, music visualization, audiovisual art, abstract film and other multi-and intermedia. The concept of synesthesia has long been a source of inspiration for artists, composers and writers. The work produced by artists attempting to provoke simultaneous perception by different senses has suggested the idea of "interactivity": between sight and hearing in particular, but not necessarily excluding interactivity among the other senses. Artists are invited to consider this concept and propose an exhibit of works that might connote or express it.

The Department of Visual and Performing Arts is calling for exhibition proposals for the Open Gallery in The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center that address the theme, "Interactivity: Sight and Sound." Four exhibitions will be scheduled for the 2015–2016 academic year.

Proposals must be received by April 17, 2015.  Applicants will be notified by June 1.
