Two easy steps to exhibit your work at LACDA...
year for over 50 years the L.A. Municipal Gallery has held its "Open
Call" exhibit where any artist can show up with their art and an entry
fee (to benefit gallery programs) and the piece is shown. The Los
Angeles Center For Digital Art decided to launch an international
experiment of the same nature where the artists upload images that are
printed and hung by the gallery. The hundreds of works are displayed in a
grid like installation (reminiscent of postcard art shows of the
1980's) where every work submitted is exhibited.
usual (less than democratic) selection process where only the precious
few are chosen is turned on its head in a curatorial anarchy where
everyone gets to participate and the viewer is literally left to be the
judge. The show represents a snapshot of a current moment in art history
when digital imaging has reached the hands of the many, an age where
culture belongs to the smart phones, tablets, apps and social nets
around the globe. From Thailand to Texas, amateur to academic, beautiful
to banal and beyond the monumental quantity and variety of "Snap to
Grid" becomes an aesthetic experience where each individual piece adds
to an agglomerative effect that has a life of its own.
