Light Art Festival in Detroit! DLECTRICITY 2020 Open Call for Artists Now Live!
DLECTRICITY™ is back! On September 25 & 26, 2020, the heart of Midtown Detroit and DTE Beacon Park will be transformed with site-specific installations of light, video, performance, sound, interactive engineering and nonconformist architecture. From lasers and 3D mapping to dance performances and puppet shows, we want to see what you create. We challenge you to animate historic buildings, activate the streets, generate engagement—the cityscape is your canvas. Now is the chance to show Detroit—and the world—what you can do!
Deadline: March 3rd, 2020
Festival dates: September 25 and 26, 2020
Location: Midtown Detroit and DTE’s Beacon Park (Michigan, United States)
Up to 25 site-specific, outdoor projects will be selected through the Open Call for Entry process by the DLECTRICITY Curatorial Committee. The Curatorial Committee, selected by Midtown Detroit, Inc. and the founders of Art Detroit Now (an organization representing over 90 contemporary arts venues in metro-Detroit), will select projects and performances based on a number of criteria, including artistic merit and how well it uses various media relating to light and other technologies (videos, smartphones, lasers, robots) within an urban environment.
Selected artists will receive up to $4000 in production funding and a $1000 artist honorarium.
