We have a logo, thanks to The Project Twins. The Cork based designer company are comprised of Michael and James Fitzgerald. They have worked with national and international organisations but their work can regularly be seen around Cork, particularly in the culture sector, with high profile clients such as Corona Cork Film Festival, Kinsale Arts Week 2010 and the Blackrock Castle Observatory.
Our current curator Liam Slevin has released an open call for the second in his series of four shows at TACTIC.

Artists are invited to submit proposals respond to the following:

“Man’s sense of space is closely related to his sense of self, which is an intimate transaction with his environment. Aspects of his self may be either inhibited or encouraged to develop by his environment.” T. Edward Hall

Artists are invited to expand on Hall’s statement with regards to physical, economic, political and cultural space. Artists are also encouraged to question the way in which we communicate, interact and inhabit these spaces, and ultimately the effect these spaces have on our individual and national Identity. The exhibition will take place in Cork city at TACTIC.

Deadline: Monday 25 July 2011

To apply, send:
Outline of proposed idea.
Max 5 images.
Artist statement, bio and C.V.
Links to websites/blogs/previous work.

We had had a great response for our first open call for "On the threshold of everything, inside and out", curated by Liam Slevin.
Slevin released an open call via Visual Artist's Ireland and through Cork Contemporary Projects, which he was previously involved in.
The starting point was;

If a door is to be viewed as a conceptual object it can be read as a point of duality, a transitory object that is belonging to both inside and outside, hostility and hospitality, being and non-being, claustrophobia and agoraphobia, public and private and all the space in between. Artists are invited to consider this with regards to their own practice, and to examine and contextualise this dichotomy within their own practice. One rule applies, artists must use a door (actual/image/section) as their source material.
