TANSTAAFL(notxt)

CALL FOR PROPOSALS!
ARCADES PROJECT, Friday, May 3, 2013

Application Deadline: Friday, March 29th
Theme: TANSTAAFL: Walk-ins Welcome!
Location: Press Bay Alley, Ithaca, NY

Arcades Project, started in 2011, is a curated, one-night event for the exhibition and sales of limited edition works produced by small and independent presses, artists, and other creative practitioners (art books, book arts, prints, image and text works, artist multiples). Arcades also hosts workshops, performances, screenings, and readings. Arcades, although an opportunity to sell work, is an event that hopes to subvert the expected context of commerce by switching themes and locations every year. This May will be the fourth incarnation of the Arcades Project– an event that wears many guises, at once a museum, a mall, a swap shop, a school, a pub, & a party.
