Bivouac 2013 – Artist Call Out


Submissions are now being sought for the 2013 instalment of the Bivouac exhibition of Video Art. This is an exhibition that explores temporality in site and place. The show is staged in a different venue each year and the curatorial focus is upon video works that have a direct relevance to site & place whilst not being confined to works that are explicitly site-specific. The preferred format is 3-Channel works although all submissions will be considered.

Bivouac 2013 will show new works by 10 selected artists at Horse Bazaar; a Melbourne City venue that is selected for its’ ambience and proximity to prospective target audiences. The venue has a strong repuatation for exhibiting contemporary Audio-Visual works.

The exhibition opens Wednesday 30th October and will screen until November 20th from Monday through Thursday (with extra exposure Friday & Saturdays).

Submissions must be between 2 and 9 minutes in length, with or without audio. The exhibition allows for single, two & three channel works. Works submitted for curatorial consideration may be supplied as a DVD, Blu-Ray, or .MOV format –with all channels published in one video (or file).

Works may be posted to:
