Intrude: Art and Life 366 Call for Art Projects (Lá Fora… 39)

Call for art projects to intrude in the city of Shanghai

Intrude: Art and Life 366 is an ambitious interdisciplinary and cross-cultural public art event organized by the Zendai Museum of Modern Art in Shanghai, China. From January 1st to December 31st 2008, a cultural event will take place everyday somewhere in the city of Shanghai.

One cultural event a day, 366 events a year, Intrude: Art & Life 366 will present global perspectives on art and culture, and bring these closer to the people of the city, intervening in their daily lives by exposing them to exceptional cultural happenings.

In order to present their work differently, artists will explore new concepts, abandoning the pristine white gallery and museum walls so that different cultural experiences can enter the public space.

Intrude: Art & Life 366 was created as a long-term project, continuing beyond the 366 days of events. All of the events will be methodically archived in Zendai MoMA’s archives and presented in the future as touring exhibitions. The Museum also publishes monthly magazines with interviews and essays on the projects to inform a broad range of people on the progress of the project.
