NEW OPEN CALL 2021
PIX FILM Gallery
In times of COVID-19, PIX FILM Collective is adapting its yearly Studio Immersion Program, by creating the new PIX FILM Collective Virtual Residency.
In 2021 we will encourage artists to experiment in creations or re-creations of their work
in Augmented Reality | 3d | 360 views to be exhibited in an exclusive web platform exclusively adapted for the PIX FILM Collective program.
This initiative extends and re-thinks the frame of shared practices and philosophies of openness.
Artists can adapt or create new digital artwork.
The resulting work is to be exhibited within an augmented reality 360-degree virtual place, reflecting creativity, optimism and resilience.
We want to see loop work, which can be abstract or representational or derived from hybrid multi-arts practices.
The work can be 1-3 minutes in duration and suitable to be disseminated on the web.
The work will be exhibited in Toronto and Austria in fall 2021- winter 2022.
Eight artist projects, selected by a jury, will be granted a combination of $1,500 cash and $500 for technical support, experimentation and production expenses.
The program will also include a workshop for technical guidance for artists selected in early August.
(Understanding of software programs such as After Effects, 3D, Photoshop can be an asset but is not necessary)
The proposed project should allow the artist to transform and innovate within their art practice by repurposing or creating a hybrid artwork for the web.
Artists will be Canadian
