Cracks in the Pavement Call for Proposals
DEADLINE: March 21, 2005
Cracks in the Pavement: Gifts in the Urban Landscape seeks proposals for site-specific art works for its summer 2005 re-launch. Artists everywhere are invited to apply. Deadline: March 21. Cracks in the Pavement is an interactive project that calls attention to small details and "in-between" spaces encountered throughout everyday life upon close inspection. This summer, artists from around the world are invited to respond to what they find in their own environments by making art objects designed to be placed in sites that in some way correspond or contrast with the content of their work. Members of the public are invited to search for these site-specific pieces using maps and clues provided online at www.cracksinthepavement.com. Art works featured in Cracks in the Pavement may be kept by whomever finds them. Works not found will be allowed to remain in the landscape indefinitely to be encountered by chance, displaced, or transformed by the very environmental forces that define each piece's context. Click here for proposal requirements. Further information about the project can be found at http://cracksinthepavement.Ccom/. or by sending an email to email@example.com.

Take Off Your Pants! Michael Smith and Joshua White
Christine Burgin Gallery, New York
On view through April 9, 2005
Christine Burgin Is a tiny space and the large spinning carnival-like kiosk that "Take Off Your Pants" consists of completely fills the room. This six-sided structure harkens back to a bygone era of hand crafted amusement park novelties, but In this situation the object is used to advertise a game for children that involves being the first to get home and take off their pants so that they can check their email on the Internet. What? Children, carnival rides, the Internet, undergarments, Mike Smith in lipstick... I don't know what the piece means, but its creep factor is through the roof!
