Calling all artists! Slideluck Denpasar is seeking photography, visual artwork and multimedia pieces from artists from all places and all walks of life to be part of a special show during Micro Galleries: Denpasar.

What is Slideluck anyway? Slideluck is a New York City-based non-profit arts organization that provides an opportunity for artists and arts-appreciators to gather around food, friends, and artwork for an unforgettable afternoon. The event begins with a robust potluck brunch lovingly provided by the attendees. When everyone has had their fill, we’ll dim the lights, hush the crowd, and begin a dynamic slideshow of visual art that you’ll never forget. Slidelucks have been held around the world, including Amsterdam, Barcelona, and London. We’re excited to be coming to Bali for not one but two incredible events in the first weeks of October.

Slideluck Denpasar will occur in collaboration with Micro Galleries Denpasar during their festival dates of October 2-16th.  Micro Galleries reclaims disused and forgotten spaces and reactivates them as tiny galleries that are free and accessible to the local community. Bringing together international and local artists, it features work that challenges ingrained ideas, blurs the line between street art and fine art, and aims to help change the way we see the world, our environment and our community – even for a micro moment. The theme for this show is completely open, so show us what you got!

Submit your work!  Both still-image and multimedia submissions may be sent through Submittable. Please consult our submissions page for detailed guidelines and instructionsFor copyright purposes, all audio included in submissions must be open-sourced, we encourage you to peruse the Creative Commons and the Free Music Archive.

Still Image Requirements:

– Every image must be at least 1024×768 pixels. We strongly recommend that you submit images that are 1080 pixels in height for maintaining the highest standards of quality. The width will be determined by the aspect ratio of your images.

– Every slideshow is set to music or an audio recording that the artist has selected. You will need to upload a music file during the submissions process. On average, each slideshow image will be projected for four seconds, so check that your audio track is longer than that time period multiplied by the number of submission slides (for example, a slideshow containing 30 slides would last approximately 120 seconds or two minutes – four times thirty equals 120). In some instances, the audio requirement may be waived or altered on specific calls for specific events.
