PLUG Projects announces a call for entries for a new Film/Video Series. The goal of this series is to extend and expand upon themes prevalent in the exhibitions curated by PLUG Projects. Artists featured in the current PLUG exhibition, Dramatic Chromatic, have found fresh ways to employ color both intuitively and strategically; resulting in a physical, yet culturally-framed phenomena that is still rich in possibilities for conveying meaning and creating a deeply satisfying visual experience. The acknowledged connection between art and consumer culture generated a shift toward an artificial, saturated palette that has been influential on much of contemporary art. The twentieth century developments in the scientific understanding of the color phenomena allowed artists to focus on its material qualities and roles in image structure, emotional and psychological responses, and design. The exhibition opens Friday May 18th and will be on view until Saturday July 7th. Any time-based experimental work that fits this theme is eligible for inclusion in the screening. Visit www.plugprojects.com for more information.
Screenings will take place on Sunday, July 8, 2012.
