Call for Proposals: Beyond Environment Exhibition Installation

Ice-II-40x31s-Call for Proposals: Beyond Environment Exhibition Installation

Curators Emanuele Piccardo and Amit Wolf are launching a design competition that seeks proposals for three pavilions, each approximately 10′ x 10′ x 10′, that will act as media rooms within the exhibition.

Submission deadline is  June 9, 2014.

Beyond Environment explores the potent interchange between architecture, Land Art, and Performance Art that emerged through Italian architect Gianni Pettena’s collaboration with American artists Allan Kaprow and Robert Smithson in the 1970s. Captivated by a journey to the USA in 1971, Pettena’s About Non Conscious Architecture series would converse with the American Midwest, a conversation culminating in his meeting with Robert Smithson in Salt Lake City. Earlier, while in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Pettena’s experiments in material transformations helped create some of architect’s most iconic works. Staged in Minneapolis in an abandoned school and in a non-descriptive suburban house, and titled Ice House I and II, Pettena would pour water into the mold works he created around the buildings’ perimeter walls. Curing during the winter night to a coat of ice, the houses resonated with their conceptual predecessor, Kaprow’s Fluids of 1967, as well as with a newer contemporary architectural sensibly concerned with the effects of variedly compounded, highly eidetic architectural surfaces.

Beyond Environment combines approximately thirty works by Pettena, Kaprow, Smithson, as well as from Pettena’s Florentine milieu, that of Superarchitecture and the Italian “Radical” groups UFO, Superstudio, and 9999. Competitors are asked to reconsider Pettena-Kaprow-Smithson’s art-architecture complex using contemporary technologies and materials. An exhibition of selected proposals will be hosted concurrently at the WUHO Gallery.

Program Requirements 

Design three pavilions that will act as media rooms, each approximately 10’ x 10’ x 10’.

Important aspects of the design include the control of light/visual/sound elements and the further manipulation of the pavilions’ envelop to accommodate seating and display.

See competition packet for existing gallery layout and setting.

The winning designer(s) will be presented with a budget of $4000 to build their design. The Competition is open. There will be a preliminary round of judging, from which a short-list of three candidates will emerge. The final judging will be held 10 June 2014.

The winning proposal will collaborate with the curators, engaging in all aspects of the project’s realization, including design sessions, discussions of the projects’ amendments/adjustments, and technical investigations into the pavilions’ realization.

Submission Requirements

1. 24” x 36” presentation board (landscape format), mounted on rigid board or foamcore, with the following images: plan, section, perspective of media room, narrative (maximum 500 words). No indication of design team and/or designers’ name to appear on the board.

2. Budget to include all estimated costs, included separately on 8 ½” x 11” sheet. No indication of design team and/or designers’ name to appear on the budget.

3. A separate 8 ½” x 11” with the design team and/or designers’ name and contact information.

Beyond Environment-Concorso per l’allestimento della mostra

In occasione della mostra Beyond Environment, che si terrà a Los Angeles dal 4 settembre al 30 novembre 2014, i curatori della mostra, Emanuele Piccardo e Amit Wolf, lanciano un Concorso Internazionale per progettare l’allestimento.

Beyond Environment esplora il potente interscambio tra architettura, Land Art e Performing Art che emerge dal lavoro dell’architetto Gianni Pettena e le sue collaborazioni con gli artisti americani, Allan Kaprow e Robert Smithson nei primi Anni Settanta.

Nel 1971 Pettena compie il suo primo viaggio in America dove rimane affascinato dal paesaggio americano dei nativi. Fascinazione espressa nella ricerca fotografica “About non conscious architecture” e culminata nell’incontro con Robert Smithson a Salt Lake City.

All’inizio del suo viaggio Pettena visita Minneapolis, dove sperimenta le trasformazioni dei materiali, portando la natura in città, creando alcuni dei suoi lavori più iconici. Così proprio a Minneapolis realizza in una scuola abbandonata e in una casa della middle class le Ice House I e II. Trasforma la solidità dell’architettura in un oggetto fluido fatto di ghiaccio come nel 1967 fece Kaprow con Fluids.

Curata da Emanuele Piccardo and Amit Wolf, in collaborazione con la Graham Foundation, Beyond Environment combina circa trenta opere di Pettena, Kaprow, Smithson, Matta-Clark, insieme al contesto fiorentino ed italiano della Superarchitettura con gruppi “radicali” come UFO, Superstudio, 9999, Ugo La Pietra e Pietro Derossi.

Ai partecipanti al concorso è chiesto di progettare un allestimento a partire dal tema della mostra. Tutti i progetti partecipanti al concorso verranno esposti, per la stessa durata della mostra, presso la WUHO Gallery della Woodbury University.

Programma

Progettare tre padiglioni pensati come media-rooms, ciascuno approssimativamente cm 305 x 305 x 305. Un importante aspetto del design è l’inclusione di elementi leggeri per luci, audio e la possibilità all’interno del singolo padiglione di collocare sedute e monitor.

I vincitori avranno un budget pari a 4000$.

Il concorso è aperto.

La selezione avviene in una prima fase preliminare che determina i tre migliori progetti e successivamente viene selezionato il progetto migliore.

L’invio dei progetti deve avvenire entro e non oltre il 7 giugno 2014 con spedizione postale al seguente indirizzo:

Beyond Environment, in care of:

LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions)
6522 Hollywood Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90028

Il vincitore dovrà collaborare con i curatori per entrare nel dettaglio del progetto espositivo e apportarvi modifiche anche dal punto di vista tecnico.

Documenti richiesti

a. n.1 tavola formato cm 60.5×91.5 montata su supporto rigido o foamcore, con le seguenti immagini: pianta, sezione, prospettiva interna della media room, relazione (maximum 500 parole). Nessuna indicazione del gruppo o del progettista dovrà apparire nella tavola.

b. Il budget, su un foglio A4. Il budget deve elencare tutti i costi stimati.
Nessuna indicazione del gruppo o del progettista dovrà apparire nel budget.

c. Il team di progettazione e / o i nome dei progettisti con i loro contato.
