Dreaming in Full
Calling all artists who investigate interdisciplinary possibilities between 'visual art' and 'theater'. Immersive, extravagant, emotional, and dramatic - works that stretch the boundaries, rethink the definitions, and create experiences that spill over the expected between these two disciplines are welcome.
‘Dreaming in full’ seeks to explore this ‘theatrical’ element merged with the ‘visual art’ in a non - theatrical space.
It will strive to examine the element of ‘Theater’ in an art piece – not just through the presence of the ‘performing body’, but through the presence of other performative elements including lights, sounds, or text.
It hopes to questions including but not limited to:
- What differentiates these (different?) modes of artistic expression?
- Can a massive installation be a theatrical set placed in a gallery?
- Can a kinetic sculpture be considered a ‘dancing’ or an ‘acting’ body?
- Where do these differences originate and how can they be justified or reexamined?
