LACDA invites you to exhibit your work in:
SNAP TO GRID
the UN-Juried Exhibit

Every Entry Submitted is Shown!

October 9 – November 1, 2008
Opening Reception Thursday October 9, 7-9pm
(in conjunction with the Downtown Art Walk)

Show your work at our gallery in our Un-Juried Competition: Snap to Grid. In our annual exhibition of this kind participants each upload one image to be printed on high quality paper and hung in a grid in our gallery. The show will be widely promoted and will include a reception for the artists.

The show is mounted in our 1,200 foot storefront gallery in the bourgeoning downtown arts district in the revitalized historic core of Los Angeles. It is an area constantly building and creating itself, filled with art, hipsters, restaraunts, clubs, music, shopping and urban loft living. The area is frequented by celebrities, critics, curators and renowned artists. The opening reception is on the night of the exciting Downtown Art Walk which has drawn over 2,000 people (and also provides a new shuttle service between each cluster of the over 30 galleries in the immediate area). Thousands are expected to attend the exhibit.

After the exhibition the images and artist information will be archived by LACDA. Artwork for future exhibits will be selected from the archived images, and will also be available for review by interested area gallerists, curators and arts journalists. The ultimate resume builder. Everybody wins!

Entry fee $30US.
Proceeds benefit gallery programs.
Deadline for entries: September 30, 2008
Show is international, open to all geographical locations.

Entrants submit one JPEG file of original work up to 3mb. All styles of artwork and photography where digital processes of any kind were integral to the creation of the images are acceptable. Digital video stills and screen shots of web/new media are acceptable. Documentation shots of digital installation and digital sculpture are acceptable.

Exhibit is limited to space available, early entry is advised.

Show Dates: October 9-November 1, 2008
Deadline for entries: September 30, 2008
Opening Reception: Thursday October 9, 7-9pm
Entry Fee: Registration fee is $30US.
Multiple Entries: Multiple entries are permitted. $30 registration fee for each additional image.

Gallery Statement:
Every year for 50 years the L.A. Municipal Gallery has held its “Open Call” exhibit where any artist can show up with their art and an entry fee (to benefit gallery programs) and the piece is shown. The Los Angeles Center For Digital Art decided to launch an international experiment of the same nature where the artists upload images that are printed and hung by the gallery. The hundreds of works are displayed in a grid like installation (reminiscent of postcard art shows of the 1980’s) where every work submitted is exhibited.

The usual (less than democratic) selection process where only the precious few are chosen is turned on its head in a curatorial anarchy where everyone gets to participate and the viewer is literally left to be the judge. The show represents a snapshot of a current moment in art history when digital imaging has reached the hands of the many, an age where culture belongs to the “mobblogers” around the globe. From Thailand to Texas, amateur to academic, beautiful to banal and beyond the monumental quantity and variety of “Snap to Grid” becomes an aesthetic experience where each individual piece adds to an agglomerative effect that has a life of its own.
