OPEN CALL – 2009 Frieze Art Fair

frieze 2009

Within the framework of Frieze Projects at the 2009 Frieze Art Fair, New York based artist Brina Thurston is organized Open Call, a project presented by curators Filipa Oliveira + Miguel Amado as part of their project “Impossible Exchange”. Brina Thurston’s Open Call considers the ostensibly democratic process by which art institutions invite artists to submit works to be considered for exhibition, but in which many factors other than quality and merit operate. Transporting what happens behind closed doors to a public arena, this project consists of an open call to artists that are not included in the 2009 Frieze Art Fair and the presentation in a booth of all the proposals submitted for one day. Thurston queries the existing logic of open calls by providing exposure opportunities for a range of artists outside of the gallery system and shifting the power of selection to the artist.frieze 2009frieze 2009
