With the announcement of MINT’s new home at The MET in mind, Program Director Jessica Helfrecht is curating an exhibition of installation art in September 2019. Six artists from the Atlanta area will be chosen to create site specific installations in a raw/unfinished space. Each artist will be paid a stipend of $250 per W.A.G.E.-Certification guidelines for their participation in a small group exhibition. Artists will be assisted with their installation by MINTerns and staff.

Installation art is a complete unified experience, rather than a display of separate, individual artworks. The focus on how the viewer experiences the work and the desire to provide an intense experience for them is a dominant theme in installation art. As artist Ilya Kabakov said, “The main actor in the total installation, the main centre toward which everything is addressed, for which everything is intended, is the viewer.” (Tate Modern)

You will not be able to access/edit your application once it has been submitted. You will also need to be prepared to submit a link to a Google Drive Folder with 3-5 examples of your previous installation work.
