“Salon des Refusés – Sights Unseen”

May 3rd, 2010

Curated by Artist Stuart Keeler

Presented by the Public Art Network, a program of Americans for the Arts

Deadline: Midnight, Mountain Daylight Time on June 10, 2010.

A notorious exhibition of work by French artists who were rejected from the official 1863 Paris Salon, the Salon des Refusés featured many of those now considered masters, including Cezanne, Manet, and Pissarro. Although critics and the public ridiculed the show in 1863, its structure became a precedent for today’s independent, unofficial exhibitions. Stuart Keeler will present an opportunity for discussion on risk-taking in public art and the role of the artist as a cultural producer who re-imagines public space. Acknowledging that there are many reasons why artists and projects are not selected for public art commissions, this presentation of Salon des Refusés seeks to recognize the power of “what could have been.”

Digital images of unrealized work are desired for presentation at the upcoming Americans for the Arts Half-Century Summit, held in Baltimore, Maryland, June 23 – 25, 2010.

Artists, Architects, Landscape Architects, Engineers, Designers, Visual Culture Practitioners and Students are all eligible to submit projects which have not been realized.

Works proposed between 1960 and 2010 are encouraged for submission. Images may be of any temporary, non-permissional and/or permanent proposals/projects/visions designed for public spaces.

Submission Requirements:
5 images with the following details for each:
Name of artist (or collaborative)
Year of the proposal
Materials
Dimensions (H x W x D format)
Value (optional, use $0 if necessary)
Description of each images (300 words or less), including the City or agency and commissioning party (if applicable)

Details on the Half-Century Summit:

“Redefining the Public Paradigm”: June 23 -25, 2010

To celebrate the10th anniversary of the Public Art Network, PAN will convene a conference future directions of public art from 23 – 25 June 2010 in Baltimore in advance of the annual Americans for the Arts conference. The conference is organized as roundtable workshops on Technical Assistance/Professional Development and Envisioning Possibilities. Each Roundtable Workshop will be facilitated by at least two subject area experts with discussion among all participants. The goal is to engage emerging and established artists and administrators to discuss an issue; share opinions, strategies, tactics; and develop responses and solutions to the issue or problem. Roundtable Workshops will generate recommendations for best practices, legislative priorities, areas in need of further exploration, and anticipating the needs of the field for the next few years. The Public Art Preconference will take place at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) on Thursday, June 24 and at the Baltimore Waterfront Marriott Hotel on Friday, June 25.

http://convention.artsusa.org/

The “Salon des Refusés” presentation will take place at “Center Stage” in the Waterfront Marriott Hotel conference location on June 24, 2010 from 8:00pm – 9:30pm.

Curator – Stuart Keeler

Stuart Keeler is an artist and curator of public spaces who continually asks – Is it “public art” or “art in public space?” Keeler has demonstrated his strong commitment to research based on the role of the artist in the built environment and has engaged multiple audiences with innovative curatorial projects on the web and in public spaces across the country and abroad. His award winning programs are numerous and ongoing.
