Culture on the Cheap
Call For Submissions: Sex Cells
When I found an email about this open call at 3rd Ward I simply knew I had to pass along the good news here. To better understand my excitement, dear readers, follows is an excerpt from their online press release for Sex Cells:
In an age where vibrations announce flirtations in the form of text messages & conquests are captured with cell phone photos and video, 3rd Ward is challenging people to take it up a notch – a bed post notch!
This nationwide open call is a search for well-executed, erotic expressions made only with a cell phone. Videos, photos and texts will all be accepted. It’s time somebody showed sloppy celebrities and indiscreet politicians how it’s done. Redefine your phone.
The judges for this event are Chase Lisbon of Nerve and Ashlea Halpern of Time Out New York. The “most uniquely artistic, thought provoking and well-executed piece” will receive a $500 reward. Select submissions will be featured in 3rd Ward’s quarterly publication and all submissions will later be incorporated into a group show whose opening date— June 12th— has been selected to coincide with L Magazine’s Northside Festival.
There is no cost whatsoever to submit and the deadline is April 22. So get those knuckles ashufflin’ Greenpointers and send some electronic love (or abject lust) to:
