NCECA 2011 - Tidal Forces: The Next Wave
Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida
March 30 - April 2, 2011



2011 Project Space: MIGRATION
ONLINE submittal form NOW Available

NCECA'S Projects Space: Migration presents the opportunity for ten invited or selected artists to create a site specific installation or performance related work in a 10x20 foot space in the EXPO Hall at the 45th Annual Conference in Tampa, FL.

Artists are asked to interpret the theme "migration," broadly posed as the movement of things - and bodies - not just of people, but of water, and earth, like the water that moves clay from its primary source to its secondary source, or their piece can be specifically related to the NEA grant NCECA received to consider how, for the people of Tampa Bay, migration often refers to the microcosm of immigrant experience they have come to embody and symbolize, and although the world today is nothing less than a global village Tampa is special in its experience with a certain type of immigration common to American culture, but very specific to this location.

Artists will have Tuesday, March 29 to install their materials and begin their piece and will be the featured guests at a reception that evening. The projects will be ongoing throughout the conference ending at 5:00 pm on Friday afternoon. Artists will de-install and clean their spaces from 5:00 - 9:00 pm on Friday evening.

Deadline December 7, 2010
