PROGRAMMING: 3LD LIMINAL STAGE PROGRAM
3-Legged Dog introduces a new community oriented arts program that will increase daytime and evening cultural activities in a neighborhood that includes the World Trade Center site, the New York Stock Exchange, Zuccotti Park, Trinity Church, the Battery Tunnel and Battery Park.The 3LD Liminal Stage Program will exhibit multimedia artworks at the 3LD Art & Technology Center, in the Tube (3LD's iconic lobby), in the street level windows and projected on the large wall across the street from 3LD. Exhibitions will be open to the public and free of charge. Curated by 3-Legged Dog staff, our Liminal Stage Program will be focused on artists who carry on the traditions of risk taking and boundary pushing aesthetics while experimenting with and creating innovative technology that engages a street level audience.
For Artists: This program is for digital and media artists who have work ready to be shown to the public that is generally self-contained. Your exhibition can be shown from the street through our windows, projected on the facing wall and/or it can be installed in the Tube (our lobby) to be open to the public during the day, as well as during the performances of our other resident artists. Exhibitions lengths range from 2 - 4 weeks. We work within a cooperative exhibition model.
This Means: - Projects must be self-producing. - 3LD offers technical and development consultations, but cannot offer any commissions or human resources. - Artists will retain 90% of the proceeds from any sales of their work. - 3LD will assist with press and promote your work on our website, e-blasts and brochures. - Artist must provide their own gallery docent and gallery hours will be determined by the needs of the exhibition. - 3LD will provide equipment based on availability. - The Tube (lobby of 3LD) can be equipped for video projection or freestanding artworks. - The 20'x11' windows of 3LD also have a long 3'x18' frosted panel to show video projections that can be seen from the street. - 3LD owns a 12,000 lumen projector capable of projecting an approximately 20' x 12' image on the blank white wall facing the center (the back of a former Syms store).
