XPACE is seeking individual artist proposals of image-based work (photography, film, video, photo based printing, etc) for a curated exhibition to be part of the 2008 CONTACT Photography Festival. Under the theme, "Between Memory and History", CONTACT looks to examine the relationship between images and their accumulative role in constructing memory and history. XPACE seeks to facilitate this exploration with an exhibition of image-based works that push the boundaries of image making, encouraging submissions of work with a strong experimental focus. This includes, but is not limited to, film, video, photo-based printing, installation and performance. In addition to the submission package detailed below, XPACE suggests applicants express in their artist statement how CONTACT's theme "Between Memory and History" relates to the proposed body of work.
