Today’s GIF of the Day serves to announce an open call that you should totally apply to, if you like hotels and reality-TV style competitions. In the art world, we’re totally lacking in reality shows like Work of Art, so at this point in time, we take what we can get. But Flux Factory’s Hotel Wars looks like it’ll fill that art-and-reality-TV void. From the Flux Factory open call:
In the past few years, dozens of hotels have sprung up right alongside the Flux Factory building in Long Island City, and over 20 more independent and brand name hotels are set to break ground soon…To playfully respond to these rapid changes and their implications, Flux Factory has organized a month-long Olympic-style competition that engages with the multiple hotels within a one block radius of Flux and their guests. Four teams of artists, game designers, urban theorists and interventionists will be headquartered at competing hotels... At the end of each week, works will be unveiled, and local celebrities and community stakeholders will award medals at a series of elaborate awards ceremonies.
Yes to all this. Awards! Teams! Olympic-style action! Do you want to be on one of those four teams? You have until midnight tonight to apply. Thankfully this can be done super quickly.
Just sent your CV, portfolio, and tell a story about one experience you’ve had in an hotel to firstname.lastname@example.org.
