Flux Factory and the Queens Museum are happy to invite proposals for Saunter Trek Escort Parade… (S.T.E.P…. ) one of Flux Factory’s 2018 Major Exhibitions; curated by Christina Freeman, Emireth Herrera, & Moira Williams.
September 6-26, 2018 at Flux Factory
November 2018 at the Queens Museum
… (S.T.E.P…. ) embraces the many ways and bodies we walk while asking how walking as a creative act can open conversations about visibility, perception, time, labor, economics, exploration, mapping, colonialism, migration, the environment, health and the connections between all of these.
S.T.E.P... celebrates, accepts and respects the many ways and bodies we walk our human and non-human pace.
S.T.E.P… seeks to be an overlapping convergence and entanglement of walking, walk based works and programing, mobilizing throughout New York. Walking based and related proposals of any kind including all two and three dimensional artworks, installations, video, performance, workshops, panels, etc., are all encouraged to apply. S.T.E.P... is open to all people of all abilities.
S.T.E.P… lives outside of the commercial arena of the art world, supporting alternative concepts, methodologies and ways of mobility, especially representing people of all abilities and underrepresented people.
All artists will receive S.T.E.P. stipends
