Richmond VA’s 1708 Gallery invites national and international artists working in all media and disciplines to submit proposals for InLight Richmond 2014, 1708’s 7th annual public exhibition of light-based art and performance. InLight 2014 will take place on Friday, November 21 in Monroe Park, one of Richmond’s most historically significant public spaces. The juror for InLight 2014 is Denise Markonish, Curator at MASS MoCA.

Proposals should involve, be inspired by, investigate, or interpret themes of light, from light as medium to light as concept. Additionally, 1708 encourages artists to propose projects that respond to and engage with the site.  Monroe Park is filled with monuments and is a Richmond landmark. Information about features of Monroe Park can be found on the InLight website.
