CALL FOR ARTISTS: ISOLATION ROOM / GALLERY KIT PROJECT IN BAKU

 ISOLATION ROOM/ GALLERY KIT PROJECT in Baku CALL FOR ARTISTS Isolation Room/Gallery Kit has been invited to Baku as part of “American Week” through a generous grant from the US Embassy in Baku, to engage with the local art scene and to promote an exchange between American and Azerbaijani artists. Isolation Room/Gallery Kit will host a changing series of exhibitions showing work by artists from the United States and a selection of work from artists living and working in Azerbaijan as part of a call to artists, along with lectures, film screenings, discussions and other art happenings. About IsolationRoom/Gallery Kit: Isolation Room, the box is the 7 x 7x 9 feet Gallery Kit, designed and built by Daniel McGrath, occupies a dining room in St. Louis, Missouri plus a carefully selected drawing, painting or sculpture. The kit can be built in any existing interior space at minimal cost ‘DIY’. It is just big enough to fit in a few visitors to contemplate the beauty within and includes its own track lighting system. The gallery kit re-imagines the ideal integration between art and life. Started in July 2010, IR/GK is an evolving project that focuses on one artwork per exhibition cycle. Each piece has been placed in a physical state of quarantine, situated in a modular viewing space inviting an extended period of contemplation. Building on an ongoing interest in containment, the constructed room allows for the smallest possible collaboration between the gallery space, curator, artist and audience. At its core one work stands in isolation. This is also an opportunity to protect work from a forced theme, loose contextualization or commercial exploitation. By placing the individual piece as a subject in isolation the work is then encouraged to exist and be perceived from an aesthetic standpoint. Over the course of four years, IR/GK has been built and experienced in a variety of local, national and international venues such as: The Fabrikken, Copenhagen, Denmark; a basement space at The Lemp Brewery, St. Louis; Hunter College Galleries, New York; The Luminary, St. Louis; and has been used by the Contemporary Art Museum-Estonia.
