SculptFest 2017 - "The State of Hope"

Artists and artist teams are invited to submit proposals for sculpture, installation, video or performance to be exhibited on the historic grounds of the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center in West Rutland, Vermont.
In recent history hope has been the apex political rhetoric. What does it mean to us now? How can we resist mounting despair? Hope in dark times is more vital than hope in times of prosperity. Without it there can be no action. In times like these, artists have a responsibility to push forward.
By examining hope from all possible angles we will seek to gain forward momentum. One of art’s fundamental purposes is to reorient us in relation to the world, to each other and to ourselves. It is a method re-thinking the status quo. It is a research practice based on exploration and an opportunity to illuminate aspects of our society and by so doing alter our collective experience. Perhaps it can teach us new ways to hope. Now more than ever rethinking is key to our collective survival. Now more than ever we need artists to reorient us to our humanity.
Proposals should include: A one-page project description, sketches, photos or other visual representations of proposed project; Artist’s resume; Up to 10 images of previous works (emphasis on site-specific); Artist statement

June 23, 2017
