About Prolonged Exposure:
“I will not make any more boring art.”
Prolonged Exposure will ask how we can remain curious and speculative in a culture of desensitizing barrage and static. The exhibition will concentrate on artworks that plumb boredom’s latent energy, provoking a restlessness which precipitates a desire for change. Prolonged Exposure will seek to overhaul viewers' sensory and interpretive habits and engender new contact patterns with artworks. Works may engage and subvert durational, automatic, repetitive, or tedious processes (lists, serial marks, obsessive indices), or otherwise seek to reframe viewers’ attention through strategies of fatigue, banality, detachment, or excess.
Visual artists who are accepted to a Recession Art Show receive a one-week exhibition at the Invisible Dog in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Video and performance artists who are accepted will negotiate directly with staff to plan a screening or performance schedule based on their needs. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, August 1st. Artists will be notified of acceptance by August 31st. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
