In the Dark: A Non-Visual Art Show

Submission due by March 1, 2014

A dark warehouse at night. Outside you must wait for a guide to take you in a small group, as you will be led around the exhibit inside and it will be completely dark. You walk in and you can’t see a thing. It’s really, really dark. You’ve been told that for this art exhibit you will only be experiencing the art by your non-visual senses, so that leaves smell, touch, hearing, and taste. The Museum of Human Achievement is looking for non-visual installations (small or large) for the In the Dark: Non-Visual Art show this spring. Please send a detailed description of your vision, including renderings of structures you might need to build, materials used, how the viewer will experience the piece/interact with it if they cannot see it.

Senses to keep in mind:
hearing (audioception), taste (gustaoception), smell (olfacoception or olfacception), touch (tactioception) temperature (thermoception), kinesthetic sense (proprioception), pain (nociception), balance (equilibrioception) To submit a proposal for this show, follow the gallery submission guidelines listed below.
