Drone Art
Deadline: Wednesday, September 30, 2015 at 5pm.

InterAccess is currently developing a group exhibition for Winter 2016 on the topic of drones. Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles, represent a fundamental shift in surveillance and warfare from that of counterinsurgency to antiterrorism, where military strategy is less about conquering territory than defeating an enemy from afar. Though warfare has been the primary benefactor of drone and surveillance technologies, drones also present valuable opportunities for creative and critical investigation. To this end, InterAccess seeks artworks of any medium that engage with the cultural space and/or aesthetics of drones. This may include using drones to produce works, using drones as a medium, or using drones as a conceptual catalyst.

Works must be exhibition ready by December 1, 2015. A committee made up of InterAccess staff, board members, and a community representative will jury submissions. Selected artists will be notified by mid-October. InterAccess pays artists fees in accordance with CARFAC’s fee schedule.


Project description and artist statement (2 pages maximum; for in-progress works, please include a reasonable timeline for completion)
Documentation (maximum five images and one video; for large files please provide a URL; for works in progress please include detailed sketches or documentation of prototypes)
Detailed description of technical requirements (please outline materials provided by the artist and materials expected from InterAccess)
Current CV (3 pages maximum)
Artist biography (100 words)
Send your submissions by Wednesday, September 30, 2015 at 5pm to art at interaccess.org using the subject line, “Drone Art Submission.” Attachments should not exceed 15MB.
