FRIDAY ISLAND is looking for artists (from Luxembourg and abroad) working in any medium (performing arts, fine arts, video/film, literature, etc.) for its next event.
FRIDAY ISLAND is a series of events taking place in Luxembourg, which promotes an exchange between artists as well as a public dialogue on a given topic. Open to all artistic disciplines and media, Friday Island offers a platform for experimentation beyond the creative processes usually bound to market oriented rationale. Friday Island offers the possibility to approach socially relevant themes in a critical way by the means of artistic thinking and creation.
Each event takes place on a Friday evening: the selected artistic projects will be showcased during that timeframe. Arranged in a convivial way, the setting of the venue should stimulate an informal exchange between both the participants (artists) and the audience. Along with the artistic contributions, FRIDAY ISLAND wishes to engage in an open discussion about the proposed topic and in relation to the artists’ work present during the event. The talk will be led by a moderator.
The theme of the event is PLAY(ING). The theme should be approached in a critical way in relation to social/political/philosophical perspectives. The artistic contributions can take any form of expression as long as they question the theme and suggest a non-conform point of view. The artistic propositions have to be newly conceived for the concerned event. FRIDAY ISLAND will
not accept works which have already been presented.
