Note: please specify the number of speakers your concept is fitting for. is calling for proposals for its upcoming exhibition series 8ight, which will feature sound art and audiovisual art installations, performances and artistic research.

This series runs from April to November 2024, with eight sequential presentations, each characterised by the number of speakers: from one in the first exhibition to eight in the last. The symbolic meaning of the number 8 for time, connection and renewal is reflected in this gradual increase.

This project explores the potential of systems in audiovisual experiments using visualisation and music.
The artists are invited to integrate the number 8 into their works.
We are also interested in the visual documentation of work in progress.
Notes, graphic elements, diagrams, scores which can be presented as part of the exhibition.

The 8ight encourages an understanding of conceptual approaches and unconventional media, exploring the tension between programmable material and its potential for failure or success as a creative approach.

Promoting the use of technology, traditional colour schemes, useless media, and audiovisual amplification of phenomena the series comprises of eight exhibitions and eight live performances, showcasing works by artists from diverse backgrounds and generations.

In addition to the artistic works, 8ight features a curatorial program that includes documentation of all eight exhibitions and live performances.

the artist fee will be determined by the number of tickets sold for each show.
At the end of the series, a printed art object, as limited edition of 8, summarising all the works will be published on our label F. for previous publications check here >>
