The Art Gallery & Art Papers for SIGGRAPH Asia 2013 is Calling for Submissions:
The SIGGRAPH Asia 2013 Art Gallery brings to ACM SIGGRAPH an exhibition of art in a major Asian city that reflects on the public domain as demarcated by the artist whose creativity is empowered by their access to a digitally-enabled means of expression. The SUBMISSION DEADLINE is 13 June 2013 (23:59 UTC/GMT).
The SIGGRAPH Asia Art Gallery 2013 welcomes proposals for art works and artistic installations that utilize digital technology including visual and sound works, public and private Augmented Reality (AR) installations, visual and sound focused performance installations, and in addition papers and talks that demonstrate visions of art for gallery contemplation and public spaces, excellence in the field of curatorial installation within museum venues, and theoretical papers discussing art in the context of technological determinism and contemporary art.
The SIGGRAPH Asia Art Gallery 2013 will be presented in a gallery space as usual with an added feature of Augmented Reality (AR) geo-located installations located throughout the exhibition hall and at selected installation sites throughout Hong Kong. Locations hosting artworks will be publicized with printed materials and an online promotional campaign. Heralding a forthcoming technology, the SIGGRAPH Asia 2013 Art Gallery specifically calls for works that utilize AR for site specific artworks, geo-located game play, and virtual reality installations. We will both promote public artwork installations and seek out hosting venues for sponsored installation of artworks at commercial venues throughout Hong Kong.
Explorations may include functional, structural, cultural, emotional, experiential or metaphorical approaches. All forms of digitally-mediated art works, especially Augmented Reality installations, kinetic and interactive works are highly encouraged. The gallery mainly considers, but is not limited to, the following topics:
2D and 3D artworks, such as digital prints paintings, and sculptures
Interactive, electronically-mediated, mixed media performances
Interactive installations, landscapes, art environments
Augmented Reality (AR) Installations
Web-based art, responsive media
Time-based art work
Artworks using digital communities, robotics, touch-screens, wearable art
Technically mediated music, sound and audio artworks
An Art Paper describes theoretical approaches to art, artworks, and artists whose artistic practice utilizes an aspect of digital technology. A successful SIGGRAPH Asia Art Gallery Art Paper may encompass a detailed and contextually based description of artistic research in visual and sound-based art works, a body of work, an artist or an artistic trend; papers that describe an actual or theoretical work of art, art installations that utilize digital technology and in addition papers that discuss the implications of technically mediated art on society; art works that demonstrate contemporary visions of art for gallery contemplation, public spaces and private consumption; excellence in the field of curatorial installation within museum venues.
An Art Paper should introduce its historical and theoretical context, provide a conceptual narrative that inspires and provokes, and if applicable, discuss the implications of technological mediation on the creative artistic process. A successful SIGGRAPH Asia 2013 Art Paper considers aspects from the following categories: Project Description, Position Paper, Thematic Survey, Technical Paper, or Monograph (only if the author is no longer active). Authors present Art Papers in 20-minute sessions with five minutes of Q&A.
Submitted works will be reviewed by an international jury, and selected works will be exhibited in a gallery space with additional virtual augmented reality works displayed throughout the convention center and outside in virtual public spaces during SIGGRAPH Asia 2013.
