Rooms to Let Temporary Art Space Opens 2013 Season
COLUMBUS, Ohio (Jan. 22, 2013)—Rooms to Let Temporary Art Space has opened its pop-up project and exhibition series for the 2013 season. This year, the local group presents a wider variety of property prospects through a partnership with Homeport.
Potential sites range from empty lots (often with traces of a house) to completely new properties yet to be sold. The range of vacant properties currently available for projects and exhibitions are located in the historic King-Lincoln district, and have been donated to Rooms to Let by Homeport.
Rooms to Let supports projects that are social, individual, site-specific, collaborative, and multi-disciplinary. Artists are asked to acknowledge both the status of the house and the property's role within its neighborhood; the primary goal is in bringing a neighborly familiarity to contemporary art practice. Through incredibly diverse and experimental projects, Rooms to Let supports a rare mix of artists and visitors who leave considering the function of art and place, and, of course, the opportunities of unoccupied homes.
Rooms to Let Temporary Art Space will accept project proposals for the 2013 season on a rolling basis with the first round reviewed in mid-february. Curators, artists, and scholars of any medium are encouraged to apply, including: fine art, performance, writing, graphic design, music, video, textiles, science, etc. There is virtually no limitation to the nature of proposals.
The first project will be a text-based exhibition later converted into a catalog, featuring the work of twelve local and international writers/artists. The exhibition is set for February 2013, with a catalog release in early summer.
Rooms to Let projects and exhibitions would not be possible without the generous support of Homeport: http://homeportohio.org
