Applications are now open for Dlectricity 2020. Dlectricity is Detroit’s festival of art and light that showcases site-specific installations by established and emerging artists from the US and around the world. Launched in the fall of 2017, Dlectricity transforms the iconic Midtown Detroit neighborhood into a spectacular environment of temporary public art for two nights each year.
Dlectricity is looking for high-quality projects that will activate the outdoor, night-time landscape of the Woodward Corridor. Projects could include light installations, video art, interactive and community engaging technology, performance and talks or workshops. Through this call, up to 25 site-specific outdoor projects will be selected by the Dlectricity Curatorial Committee to be shown alongside a series of commissioned artworks by local and international artists.
Criteria for selection will include creativity, innovation and suitability for display at Dlectricity. Accepted projects will be funded up to $4,000. Artists will also receive a $1,000 honorarium. The chosen works will transform Midtown Detroit over two nights from September 25th-26th, 2020.
