Scripts and Systems - call for entries

Type: Exhibition Opportunities [View all]
Posted by: Lexington Art League
Deadline: 04/13/12

May 25 – July 15, 2012

Many of our daily and most menial tasks have been reduced to orderly algorithms - a discrete set of steps, rules, or calculations followed in specific order to accomplish a task. With improving technology, we are personally responsible for fewer of these steps.

Scripts and Systems is an exhibition about these plans and plots. It is about letting go of control - even in our creative lives. It is about the relationship between people and our machines, about whom we give instruction to and whom we take it from. It is about all of the scripts we follow.

Artists interested in submitting work for consideration are encouraged to creatively interpret the theme. Works in all media are eligible.

For full prospectus, please visit and look under "Scripts and Systems."
