Call to Artists: e4c 2018
4Culture is now accepting applications from media artists to present at e4c, their storefront gallery in Seattle’s vibrant Pioneer Square neighborhood. Up to 12 artists will be selected to present work that will be displayed for up to one year.
Since 2008, more than one hundred artists have presented their media artworks on these street-facing screens, ranging from humorous paper-cut animation to challenging documentary. The gallery audience for e4c is often on the move, comprised of bus and car commuters, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Because of this, artworks between 1-5 minutes are desired and up to three artworks are desired. Each selected artist will receive a $500 honorarium to help defray expenses. Media artists across the US, working in all genres are encouraged to apply.
