call for gallery works


In conjunction with the Electronic Literature Organization 2012 Conference, a juried Media Arts Gallery Exhibit will be held from Wednesday, June 13 - Saturday, June 23, 2012 at The Monongalia Arts Center. Visit the media arts show link in the menu, or here, to see the accepted works for the Media Arts Gallery Exhibit.

In particular, we are looking for works such as:

1.    Electronic literary works, such as hypertext poetry and fiction, interactive fiction, flash poetry and fiction, as well as other forms of elit

2.    Net art pieces

3.    Video

4.    Animations

5.    Sonic art

6.    Experimental or conceptual multimedia works

7.    Locative Works

We are asking for works that can be presented in 20 minutes, though like most e-lit works might take much longer to fully explore. Because of the limitation of space, all works must be able to be exhibited via a computer, mobile phone, or tablet. We will not be able to accommodate live performances or installations.
