*Call for Proposals: Factory***

*MoBY [Museums of Bat Yam, Israel]***

*Deadline: December 15**th **2008*

MoBY (Museums of Bat Yam, Israel) is inviting artists and groups of all
cultural fields to submit

proposals for works/actions for Factory, an international exhibition taking
place in two venues from May


Factory exhibition focuses on production processes and their outcome in the
framework of the art field,

as well as on the social-economic structures that govern the contemporary
world. The exhibition's theme is inspired by Andy Warhol's famous studio,
which carried diverse functions during the 60s – a gathering place for the
New York bohemia, a site in which both superstars and marginal characters

dwelled, a place that shaped the public and artistic persona of Warhol and
his companions while

functioning as an artist's studio in the full sense of the word, stimulating
artistic production in various media. Factory exhibition foregrounds the
critical tension that resides in production processes of different art
practices (video, sound, installation, performance, painting, photography
etc.), between the live event, concrete artifacts and their display and
consumption. We seek to induce the same tension in the friction and echoing
formed between the exhibition's two venues, as the artistic activity in each
of the sites will be shaped according to the unique characteristics of each

:::First venue – Ben Ari Museum of Contemporary Art, Bat Yam

A museal exhibition showing between May and August 2009, concentrating on
production processes

responding or challenging the museum institution's display strategies,
outlines and boundaries.

:::Second venue – Industrial area, Bat Yam

The industrial area is a non-artistic space, and nonetheless a much desired
location for contemporary

art display because of its seemingly raw nature. These are the last days of
Bat Yam's industrial area in its current appearance, as it is planned to go
through a renovation process that will transform it to a "business area".
The chosen artists will work in different spaces in the industrial area for
about a month, during May 2009. The various projects will be created during
this month, in a process that will culminate in a live artistic event. This
event, much in the spirit of 70s Happenings, will be open to the public for
the duration of 5 days.

You may submit a proposal for each of the venues

Please use the following form, available for download here:

Please send your proposal to: mobyfactory la gmail.com

*The museum serves the right to select the participating proposals. Answers
will be given until mid January 09.
