The Hatchery: Fortress

Call for Proposals

The Hatchery is pleased to announce its participation in the International Urban Art and Media Organization (UAMO) City Tour. The Hatchery: Fortress exhibition is the sole U.S. site in the tour, and will be represented through documentation at the UAMO Festival in Munich in April 2016. Two artists from The Hatchery: Fortress exhibition will be also be represented in Munich.

We are seeking proposals from artists working in all media to present work on the theme of Fortress (literal representations of a fortress will not be considered).

There is no restriction regarding media or size, the only possible restrictions are the limited availability of power (provided by generators) and the potential for weather intrusions into the building. The building is unsecured, partially open to the environment, in a remote location in the Sierra foothills. See more for the history of the site, size and condition of the building, and location.

Dates of the exhibition are November 6-8, 2015. Installation by artists of their work, may begin on November 1. Event and working hours will be during daylight hours only. Limited low-cost local housing will be available for artists during the event. No insurance will be provided; transportation of artwork is the responsibility of the artist.
