International Call for Participants of The Core Project

The Core Project – an international Art Project is seeking participants around the world to become part of a global art experiment. This is a call out for international participants living across the globe!

The Core Project is a contemporary visual art project, led by Artist/Curator Matthew Nevin. The project will feature 200+ Videos; that will be showcased online, through an experimental film, and in a large scale installation in September 2017 in RUA RED Gallery Dublin.

Each video contains a single person representing all of the sovereign states of the world responding to a secret question. These participants are provided instructions on how to film, including the previously unseen question which they do not view until filming has begun. Furthermore this question will only ever be revealed to the participants of the project.

The project focuses on the accumulation of an ephemeral art public, analysing the process of each of the participants understanding of the question, exploring their visual set up [how they set up the camera, their ‘visual scene’], their method and practice in participating in the project.

The Core Project’s activities and participation aim to create an inclusive, international art public. It is the goal of the project to operate as a social and cultural experiment in assessing “participation in political activity”. This method of everyday participation and utilization of artistic political engagement is essential to the project’s inclusive strategy. (Deutsche, 1998, p.288, Evictions: Art and Spatial Politics.)
