Orbital: San Francisco Open Call for 2-D Artists
Deadline: 08/31/2017 | Location: California
Orbital is a project that provides artists with the opportunity to display work in LEWIS offices world-wide. Orbital means mobility over distance and geographical locations, the circulation and display of artworks in non-traditional spaces. The project avoids the use of exhibition and curation, as the spaces are not traditional exhibition spaces open to the public. Instead, terms such as display and placement and practices of spatial design are used to define the exact nature of the project.    In our displays, we combine original and digitally reproduced artwork, locally sourced. Salon installations in a non-art space narrate these displays. In addition to the display of work, we include text-based material that includes artists' statements about their artwork and contact details. Orbital also offers online space for showing and promoting artists’ work through LEWIS’ online platforms.   The benefit for artists and institutions is a social one, both for the employees of LEWIS and the artists involved. Detailed information is provided on each artist so that staff and clients can access these individuals out of personal and professional interest. The current opportunity is a call for entries that will be displayed in the office in Downtown San Francisco, CA. Subject matter is entirely open, but submitted work should explore the theme of “Inspired by a Famous Lewis” – such as C.S. Lewis (Narnia), Lewis Carroll (Alice in Wonderland), Merriweather Lewis (Lewis & Clark exploration), Emmanuel Lewis (Webster), Lewis Hamilton (race track driver), and John Lewis (Civil rights activists). Themes could include (but are not limited to) fantasy, whimsy, adventure, comedy, activism, speed racing, back-to-the-future, the Old West and collaboration.
