@ University Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I am very excited about this!
Info as follows:
The Altered Target Project is a juried exhibition where all the artists begin with identical authentic paper rifle targets, and alter them as they wish. The finished work must remain, in some way, a useable target.
We will provide each entrant with three official law enforcement silhouette targets (model B-27M, size 23 x 35 in.) to work from. Artists may paint, draw, print on, collage, cut, sew, project video, shoot at, or make any other creative alteration to the target.
Since the targets are not archival, framing is not essential, binder clips and pins will accommodate most installations. However, heavier finished work or sculptural work will require the usual support considerations.
It has been over fifty years since Jasper Johns presented his first target paintings. His rendition of the iconic circle target greatly influenced the Pop artists that followed. The human silhouette target was chosen for our exhibition because it has a versatile design with a bold central figure and ample margins. The B-27M should prove to be the perfect image to revisit the target in the 21st century.
There has already been overwhelming interest in the Altered Target Project on a local and national level....There are only 500 targets and they are getting claimed fast...
Exhibition plans include a large show with a national call for artists in the summer.
Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in the project.
