PUNCH Projects presents: Barnstorm 2018
The exhibition will be comprised of large-format printed images, video monitors and projections juried by Ginger Ewing (Program Director and Co-Founder of Terrain Spokane; Washington State Arts Commissioner; Spokane Arts Commissioner; Artist Trust Ambassador; Executive Director, Window Dressing). Instead of original pieces of art, selected artists will be given instructions to provide a high-resolution digital image file or video file of the chosen work(s); large format prints of the selected images will be created from the files and hung in the space. Video works will be displayed via monitors and projections directly onto the interior and exterior walls of the building. PUNCH Projects will pay the cost of shipping prints to the artists after the exhibition closes.
There is no theme to the call; however, we encourage submissions that consider how a work might speak to the dialogue between urban and rural sensibilities, as well as images and videos that might operate in a non-traditional exhibition space of this sort. All forms of images will be considered: photo-based works, photos of 2-d artwork, photos of installation, new media, sculpture, or other 3-d work, and photo stills from video works. Video clips, full-length video works and audio works are also welcome and encouraged.
All submissions may be considered for subsequent PUNCH Projects events.
Founded in 2006, PUNCH Projects has worked to promote visual art made from artists outside of the urban centers. In our ongoing effort to promote artwork that is thoughtful, fresh and contemporary coupled with our desire to further bridge urban rural connections, PUNCH Projects seeks to support the cultural vibrancy of rural art scenes by spurring creative awareness, cross-cultural engagement and economic vitality.
Additionally, Ginger is an Ambassador for Artist Trust, a Spokane Arts Commissioner, a Washington State Arts Commissioner, member of a Joint Art Committee selecting artwork for a 63 million dollar park renovation in the heart of Spokane, and the former Curator for Cultural Literacy at the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture. She also loves dogs. Especially pugs.
