PASSPORT DARE-DARE 2018 + Festive evening

Call to Montreal Artists //

Closing date: July 27, 2018 5 pm

DARE-DARE invites Montréal artists to participate in the fifth edition of PASSEPORT DARE-DARE. The event will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2018 in the wake of the Journées de la Culture and will take place in selected locations of St-Henri and Little Burgundy.

This cultural activity consists of an ambulatory tour where participants are invited to collect works by artists selected by DARE-DARE. Free for the occasion, the blank passport booklet is given at the beginning of the course to the participants and filled of original works throughout the day. The whole is a small unique and exclusive book, a collective work to collect over the years. It is an event intended for a large audience rallying actors from the commercial, cultural and visual arts sectors.

DARE-DARE invites the artists to propose a work approaching the theme FRICTIONS [1] with a particular sensitivity for the performativity of the territory, that is to say the moving body in the city, the gestures that the we pose in the city and our way of inhabiting it. Works submitted to the call may belong to the fields of 2D and print, but not strictly. DARE-DARE invites artists to overflow the territory of the page by intervening in the notebook by various tactics: sewing, cutting, origami, collage of small objects or any other medium that leaves a trace in the passport as such. The requested projects are supported by the passport booklet in the format of 3 X 5 inches maximum. For a maximum of 60 seconds, interventions should be designed keeping in mind that they will be repeated between 100 and 130 times during the event.
