For its 2015-2016 programming, DARE-DARE proposes to work with the notion of infiltration. This is a call out to artists that aspire to inscribe art in daily life; that want to immerse themselves in social environments using all manners of strategies, and within the confines of a wide range of time frames. DARE-DARE invites you to contemplate in socius art and generate encounters, gestures, and situations– in a variety of non-conventional sites? (Clandestine locations– real or virtual, social structure, extra-artistic spheres of activity that could be: factories, social networks, workplaces, hospitals, blogs, stores, centres or homes for the elderly, sports clubs, abandoned buildings, train stations, etc.) DARE-DARE artist run centre would like to encourage the « micro », erasure, « being together », the anti spectacular, and dematerialization.
The artist or collective must be able to develop a strategy for sharing their work. DARE-DARE will organize two round tables during which the artists will present and discuss their projects. Artists will be paired with a writer/theoretician in order to reflect together on the work. The writers/theoreticians will also participate in the round tables.
