The Idea Fund grants $4,000 awards to 10 artist-centered projects that exemplify unconventional, interventionist, conceptual, entrepreneurial, participatory, or guerilla artistic practices.
Applications will be accepted from Texas-based artists, artist collectives, and/or curators who create and showcase new work involving the public via process, production, or presentation. Proposals are evaluated on artistic strength; overall vision; capacity to realize the proposed project; accessibility to the public; and demonstration of community support and commitment to serving a local constituency. The Round 5 deadline is October 19, 2012.
Round 5 jurors include Dean Daderko (Curator at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston), Ayanna Jolivet McCloud (past Idea Fund recipient), Christina Rees (Curator at The Art Galleries at TCU), and Carol Stakena (Executive Director at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions).
The information session at Artpace is free and open to the public. You can also visit www.theideafund.org for more details.
