Join the 2018 progressive Ferret


FERRET invites you to
ferret-out the part of the Articulate spaces that you like, then ferret in your unconscious for an artwork that should go there (or the other way around).
experiment with installation and placement of your own artwork in an architectural space that is already altered by the earlier installation of other work, and which will be altered again when the group that comes after you installs around you. 
• enjoy the pleasure and challenge of working with and getting to know other participating artists.  

FERRET PROGRAM
(If the program below is too hard to get your head around, just pick the dates that suit you and reply to etalucitra@gmail.com ASAP.) The work of each group will be on public exhibition for two weeks except for the first and last groups (A and F) whose work will be open to the public for one week, and whose fees are adjusted accordingly. Each group will be installing in a space already occupied by the previous group (except for group A) and each group will overlap with the next group by one week (except for F).

FERRET DATES
The table above shows key dates for the group you decide to join, and you are also asked to come to each of the 5 openings to see how your work and other artists' works change as their contexts change.

JOIN FERRET
If you would like to participate in FERRET, please reply ASAP saying which group you'd like to join (give your first 3 preferences in case too many people want the same group), plus mobile/phone and email contact, and we will respond with more details. (If you know other artists who would be interested and who you think would contribute well to FERRET, please send their contact information.)

As soon as possible after that, please send an image (of earlier work or work planned for FERRET) and optional small text (max 100 words) about you and your work for advance advertising on the Articulate blog, press releases and invitations.

FERRET THEME
FERRET is called FERRET because it sounds slightly like FERAL of 2015, which was named FERAL because it sounded like FAIR ISLE of 2013 (titled because of the progressive nature of the Fair Isle knitting pattern) and because, like FAIR ISLE, its overlapping structure is a slightly feral form of exhibition practice.  

There is no theme for work included in FERRET. Though Articulate’s focus is on spatial artwork like installation, the work you exhibit in FERRET is up to you. You are just asked to follow the dates in the program, leave other people’s work unchanged (unless you have their agreement) and return the space to how you found it (cleaning materials and matching paint are available). 

We also want a mix of small and large works that are installed by you with regard to their location—have a conversation with us if you think your planned work needs some negotiation.

FERRET PARTICIPANTS
As well as installing your own work, you are asked to come to an advance meeting for your group, and to support the group through sitting the space for 3 hours, or helping put on the opening (with funds from FERRET fees) or preparing & printing the room sheet for your group (Word template available – each group can update the previous room sheet).

FERRET  FEE
The fees of $60 for each artist in A and F, and $120 for each artist in B–D covers rent, modest opening costs and modest photographer's fees. (The photographer will be asked to document the relationships between works rather than focusing on separate works, so please also take your own images.

FERRET WRITER

Please let us know if you would like to write about the whole project or individual iterations for the FERRET catalogue/blog, or want to propose someone else as a writer. (Texts for FAIR ISLE and FERAL are on the Articulate blog – click on FAIR ISLE  and FERAL 1,2,3,4 and 5 under INDEX on the right side.)

CLOSING DATES
Please send your preferences for groups ASAP.  Acceptances close as soon as each Group is full.  Names will be listed in the program above as they come in.
