KITE: CALL TO ARTISTS

Call to Artists:

 We are considering art and ideas for our upcoming exhibition “KITE” presented by Studio@620 in St Petersburg, Fl. Opening 4/11/2020

 The show will be co-curated by Fahan Sky McDonagh & Drayton Callison. KITE will be a collection of experiences throughout the duration of the show from the opening event, to kite building workshops, a kite fly in the park, a poetry night and more.

 What is a Kite:a light frame covered with some thin material, to be flown in the wind at the end of a long string.

But could it be more than that?

A kite seems to live at the edge of a dream. There is a bit of magic in this connection between sky and earth. That magic is experienced through kiting.

Conceptually, a kite can conjure childhood nostalgia, a feeling of lightness or a moment of Zen for the flyer. What is a kite to YOU? We are searching for artists who want to experiment with the notion of a kite, the materiality that is possible/or impossible, the emotional response to the experience, what lies at the edge of a dream.

All forms of art and materials will be considered: fabric, paper, ceramic, concrete, steel, glass, photography, performance, painting, drawing, poetry, video, etc.
