AboutThe University of Abertay's Hannah Maclure Centre is currently researching the area of sports and leisure and how the biological and psychological influences of sport, and through sociology, can influence and shape contemporary society.
This call is to hear about your current practice and how it could explore one of the many areas of sports and leisure - the aesthetics of sport, its theory or psychology, mark making and movement, modes of athletic performance, temporal and spatial dissonance â¦â¦â¦.
We are looking to receive submissions from cross-disciplinary work at any stage of career but have a keen interest in technologies being used for creative expression.
It is envisaged that a number of artists will be selected to work on new works either as solo pieces or as a collaborative commission to then be part of a large exhibition starting August 2009.
The University's division of Sports and Leisure is positively involved with developing sport and exercise throughout the University and across the UK and are keen to be actively involved in this project.
Submission deadline: 22nd August 2008
Please send us a statement of practice and how you would investigate the theme, a current CV and 1 5 images.
You can email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org (images as jpeg less than 2MB) or submit on CD-ROM or DVD by post to:
