Next - Call to Artists, Architects + Designers

What’s New + What’s Next in Contemporary Art + Design
**Limited amount of submissions accepted – ‘Pay What You Can’ submission fee - receive deadline is 8pm, MST on January 23, 2011 or until full, whichever comes first**
International Call to Artists, Architects + Designers from all countries.  We’re seeking what’s new + what’s next in the following categories:
1.       Film/Video/Sound/3D Animation
2.       Design (graphic design, interactive design, furniture + related accessories, lighting, haute couture, body adornments, architecture, etc.)
3.       Two Dimensional Works (drawings, paintings, prints, photography, illustration, digital art)
4.       Three Dimensional Works (installation, sculpture, textiles or any combination of these or the above)
Think new ideas + applications, cutting-edge materials/processes, unconventional use of traditional materials/processes, etc.
The purpose of ‘NEXT’ is to discover and highlight the best in the next wave of contemporary art + design.  For this exhibition, the BECA Foundation will be enlisting the input of art + design enthusiasts from around the world.  Two artists or designers from each of the four categories listed above will be selected by public vote and will be featured in the physical group exhibition, ‘NEXT’ presented by BECA: Bridge for Emerging Contemporary Art in Albuquerque, NM.   The BECA public vote process is unique in that while someone may vote for their friend, each voter is also required to vote for 5 other artists/designers at the same time (their Top 6), thereby eliminating the personal popularity contest that has become so prevalent in online voting.  Submission deadline is January 23, 2011 or until full, whichever comes first. This exhibition will open March 4, 2011 and run through March 19, 2011. This group exhibition opportunity is open to submissions from all creative producers who are at least 18 years of age without regard to geographic location.  Complete submission information is posted at: http://www.becaicad.org/artist-designer-submissions.php
