The Hive: a new opportunity in collaboration with A Blade of Grass Foundation!

EFA Project Space and A Blade of Grass partner to present The Hive, an adaptive arena for artistic projects that redefine audiences and encourage symbiotic, dynamic interaction among participants.

We are currently requesting proposals for the first presentation of The Hive at EFA Project Space in 2013!

Artists today are working in a new capacity--one that challenges the definition of art itself by introducing new ways for art to become a part of everyday life.  Instead of making work in the context of exhibitions and objects for display, artists are focusing on the processes of collaboration and reciprocity with a goal of generating engagement through experiences, interactions or services. 

“The Hive” explores this new arena by inviting artists to use the gallery as a lab rather than as an exhibition venue. Selected artists and creators will explore the outer reaches of art by creatively connecting with different audiences, and creating projects that concretely engage viewers in communication and interaction.

“The Hive” is a metaphor for the interconnected world that we live in today: a hive’s structure depends on the web of relationships that sustain it.  These relationships ultimately exemplify collaboration in the working process, as many different types of people work interdependently to build a structure, start a business, and so forth.  Art can be just this interconnected. It is one element that connects with many others in order to provide an experience that is socially relevant and aesthetically profound.
