Our call for proposals is now open:
The twelfth annual Visualeyez festival of performance art is happens from 13–18 September 2011 in the downtown core of Edmonton, Alberta, exploring on the curatorial theme of worship.
Visualeyez takes place over a period of six days and it is required that all invited artists are able to attend for the entire length of the festival. Artists experience the work of other artists; engage in discussion groups, meals and other activities that enhance the work of individual artists and the performance art community within Canada and beyond.
Curator and Founder of Visualeyez, Todd Janes states, “Visualeyez 2011 takes a rather different focus, and I am curious how artists are engaging in discourses surrounding worshipping; or executing issues of devotion, contemplation and adoration as a key element in their practices and performances. I am not just curious about spiritual but also commoditization and extremes like obsessions”.
