Unnoticed Art will be presented at Platforms Project, Athens, Greece.
May 20 – May 25 2017
Open Call for small artworks!
In the best traditions of unnoticed art we will present an empty gallery. Our three staff members will wear a casual jacket and by showing the inside of this jacket a collection of art works will be presented to randomly selected individual passers-by. Your work can be part of these special exhbitions.
Send us one to three small (crafted or ready-made) pieces of art, texts, photo’s or drawings.
There will be a selection procedure, so sending us a work is no guarantee it will be added to the show.
Max.size of each piece:
Important: Your work must be acceptable for police, for customs and it should fit the standard flight regulations. It will be transported in hand-luggage.
Send your piece(s) to:
Deadline is May 13 2017 at 23:59 h
The list of included works will be published on this page at May 15.
The second Unnoticed Art Festival will take place on June 24/25 2016. We are looking for ± 30 volunteers to carry out all works in the center of an undisclosed Dutch city.
On friday June 24 (15.00) you will be picked up at an announced spot in the Netherlands and a van will bring you to a camping near that undisclosed city (you will have to bring your camping stuff).
On Saturday morning (early) we will all leave for the city center and during the day we will, individually and in groups, carry out every work in the program. For reasons of documentation everybody writes down some personal experiences afterwards. Documenting the works by camera is not appreciated because of the unnoticed character of the festival!
Back at the camping at the end of the day a great dinner will be served to conclude the festival (created and cooked by Jasper Budel & Friends). It is conceived as a way to thank all participants and sponsors.
If you want to join the festival as a volunteer you are welcome to write us your personal motivation at: email@example.com.
Please keep in mind: apart from the offered program (incl. transport van, camping, meals) we don’t have funds for extra (travel-) expenses!
On June 24/25 2016 the 222lodge will organise a second festival for Unnoticed Live Art in an undisclosed Dutch city.
The Unnoticed Art Festival balances on the line between public and private. It shows artworks hiding in normality. The language, used to express the works, fits in the average social behaviour in public space and, because of that, remained unnoticed to bystanders.
Creating the concepts and executing the works are split. Artists send their concepts more or less as manuals. In the festival the chosen works will be carried out by a group of (both experienced and unexperienced) volunteers.
The volunteers have a double roll. They are participants as well as audience. They are responsible for realising the performances in the best possible way and, doing that, they fully experience the works. In fact they become part of it. The public is not excluded in this way but it is actually embedded.
The location of the festival remains a secret. That way the passers-by are accidental and without knowledge of the occasion. They are unaware.
They have their own aims, their own occupations, their own thoughts.
You are very welcome to send your concept to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline is 1st of March 2016.
