Revised call from Public Space One
As a stepping off point for this exhibition we look towards Mierle Laderman Ukeles’ “Maintenance art manifesto: proposal for an exhibition, ‘CARE’” and are particularly interested in artists whose practices may: • Give new meaning to routine maintenance activities such as care and cleaning; • Foreground systems of maintenance critical to our functioning at home, work, and the world at large; or • Ask questions about what must be maintained, why, and by whom.
We ask interested artists to submit a piece or project, along with a short statement related to these questions. If chosen, both will be displayed in a group exhibition at Public Space One in Iowa City in December 2015, opening December 11. Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 15.
