Experimentation, provocation, and research are at the heart of Science Gallery Detroit’s values and transdisciplinary programs. The Tracked & Traced exhibition, which opens in September 2021 during the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the United States, will explore the practice and concept of dystopian and utopian aspects of surveillance, through the lens of artists, designers, computer scientists, engineers, young people, and more. Your proposal could be a new or existing artwork, performance, workshop, digital intervention, research project, virtual reality game, or other activity. We strongly recommend that you keep our target audience of young people aged 15-25 years in mind and consider including interactive or participatory elements.
As a guide, the majority of our projects are funded up to around $3000 USD which includes all artist fees, materials, equipment, shipping, and travel. We enthusiastically welcome proposals that come in below that budget.
Deadline 5 February 2021
