The Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild, located in Woodstock, NY, invites artists working in 3D materials suitable for outdoor installation to submit proposals for PSYCH OUT!!! Submissions should have an affinity, direct or indirect, with the psychedelic movement, especially its evolution and/or its inspiration, over the past 50 years.
The PSYCH OUT!!! outdoor group exhibition will take place on the grounds of Byrdcliffe, founded in 1902 and the site of the original Woodstock art colony. Dates for the exhibition are July 13, 2019 through November 3, 2019. The exhibition commemorates the 50th anniversary of the legendary Woodstock Music Festival: “An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music,” which was held August 15 to August 18, 1969.
Isaac Abrams, whose New York City gallery Coda first exhibited psychedelic art in 1965, will participate in the exhibition as a special guest artist along with artists whose proposals are accepted. Isaac himself started making art in the psychedelic mode soon after the ground-breaking Coda exhibition. On August 24, 2019, Isaac Abrams will present a range from his lifetime body of work in conversation with critic and curator Carlo McCormick, who has followed Isaac’s art for many years.
Deadline for Submission: April 13, 2019 (5:00 pm)
