Call for Projects for Site-Specific Interventions in Lima

Call for proposals from artists based in Latin America, for public interventions in downtown Lima.

Four projects will be presented in late October during “La Gran Semana
de Lima”.

Documentation materials of the production process will be exhibited at Centro Fundación Telefónica in Lima.

Deadline: August 7, 2009.

Online registration: www.centroabierto.org

Organized by: Alta Tecnología Andina – ATA, Fundación Telefónica and Museo de Arte de Lima – MALI

In recent years a number of initiatives have been undertaken to renovate downtown Lima, historical center to a growing metropolis of over 8 million inhabitants. Within this framework, the city center has become a site with great potential for the development of contemporary art projects.

Alta Tecnología Andina – ATA, Fundación Telefónica and Museo de Arte de Lima – MALI invite artists living in Latin America to present site-specific projects for eight possible locations at Plaza San Martín and nearby areas in Lima’s historic downtown center.

Proposals by individual artists or collectives will be accepted. All projects must be original (not previously produced) and may include drawing, painting, printing, photography, sculpture, installation, performace, video, sound, electronic, digital art, and other related media.

Four proposals will be selected each receiving 6,500 USD for production, installation and dismantling of the work, as well as a 1,000 USD fee for the artist or collective. Additionally, selected projects by artists not living in Lima will also receive support for travel and accommodation for up to three weeks during the production and installation of the work.

The four projects will be presented at the end of October during “La Gran Semana de Lima”. This annual event, organized by the City of Lima, is directed at a broad and diverse audience and consists of musical, artistic, and other cultural activities.

Documentation materials of the conception and production process of each project will be exhibited at Centro Fundación Telefónica from October 29 to December 13, 2009.

Centro Abierto 09 is possible thanks to the support of Telefónica del Perú and the City of Lima, as well as through the collaboration of ArteExpress.
