Mix Tapes: A Call For Artists

MINT is a new non-profit organization that has been putting on art shows for about as long as I have been writing this blog (since last November). They tend to have group shows that put established artists right next to emerging ones, in an attempt to help foster the art community. MINT has been jumping from space to space, biding their time until they get their space renovated. I'm honored to be curator for the grand opening of that space this summer. In preparation for what is going to be another large group exhibition (this time based around the idea of the mix tape), I am putting out a call for artists to participate.


Call for submissions

"The making of a great compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do and takes ages longer than it might seem. You gotta kick off with a killer, to grab attention. Then you got to take it up a notch, but you don't wanna blow your wad, so then you got to cool it off a notch. There are a lot of rules."

MINT is looking for artists to participate in its upcoming mix-tape art show titled MIXT. We are asking that selected artists will create a mix tape (you remember cassette tapes don't you) and accompanying art work to show (and be heard via walkmen) at the grand opening of MINT's new gallery space this August. We are also open to proposals for mix tape inspired art, projects, or installations outside of our suggested format. If you are interested in participating, please send samples or links to previous work, as well as a short proposal if you plan on being extra creative, to me at mike.germon@gmail.com

We will also be looking for people to donate/loan walkmen for use during the exhibit.
