WPA\C Experimental Media Series - ColorField Remix

*DEADLINE: Thursday, March 7, 2007 (entry received)*

*KRAFT MEDIA PRIZE: $1000 Finalist | $500 Honorable Mention*

WPA\C's Experimental Media Series - ColorField Remix challenges artists to
reinterpret the Color-Field artists with experimental video, sound and
performance pieces. Artists are encouraged to create new work
reinterpreting or inspired by Color-Field artists. The Kraft Media Prize
will be awarded to one finalist and one honorable mention finalist, selected
by the jurors for Night 3. Jurors will make selections based on overall
quality and innovation as it relates to Color-Field.

ColorField Remix, a Washington, DC citywide project, spanning the the spring
and summer of 2007 and linking numerous art venues, will celebrate the many
legacies of the generation of Color Field and Washington Color School
artists. Participating venues include: The Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture
Garden, National Gallery of Art, The Kreeger Museum, Hemphill Fine Arts, The
Katzen Center at American University, The Phillips Collection, for a
complete list of participants and progrms (Insert website for colorfield
remix here.)

The Washington Color-Field Painters rejected the notion that paintings could
not make a statement with only color and composition. Artists explored the
fundamental formal elements of abstract painting: pure, unmodulated areas of
color; flat, two-dimensional space; monumental scale; and the varying shape
of the canvas itself. Color-Field Artists associated with the movement
include: Morris Louis, Kenneth Noland, Howard Mehring, Thomas Downing, Paul
Reed, and Gene Davis.
