FROLIC FREEZE PLANNING


FROLIC FREEZE 2020 continues Articulate’s experiment with exhibition practice begun with  FAIRISLE,  FERAL FERRET and FERMENT in previous years.

FROLIC  FREEZE 
invites you to
 locate the parts of Articulate’s spaces that you like, then develop an artwork for those that are available for your group (or the other way around).
• work in an architectural space that is already altered by the earlier installation of other work, and which will be altered again when the group that comes after you installs around you. 
• participate as an artist and audience member, and/or as an artwriter, group organizer, invigilator, documenter, etc., as you wish.

FROLIC FREEZE PROGRAM
(If the program below is too hard to get your head around, just pick the dates that suit you and reply to etalucitra@gmail.com ASAP.) The work of each group will be on public exhibition for two weeks except for the first and last groups (A and G) whose work will be open to the public for one week, and whose fees are adjusted accordingly. Each group will be installing in a space already occupied by the previous group (except for group A) and each group will overlap with the next group by one week (except for G).

FROLIC FREEZE DATES
The table above shows key dates for the group you decide to join, and you are also asked to come to the 6 openings to see how artworks change as their contexts change.

JOIN FROLIC FREEZE
If you would like to participate in FROLIC, please reply ASAP saying which group you'd like to join (give your first 3 preferences in case too many people want the same group), plus mobile/phone and email contact, and we will respond with more details. (If you know other artists who would be interested and who you think would contribute well to FROLIC, please send us their contact information to etalucitra@gmail.com)

As soon as possible after that, please send an image (of earlier work or work planned for FROLIC) and optional small text (max 100 words) about you and your work for advance advertising on the Articulate blog, press releases and invitations.

FROLIC FREEZE THEME
FROLIC FREEZE  was initially called FROLIC because it sounds slightly like FERMENT of 2018, which was named after FERAL of 2015, which was named because it sounded like FAIR ISLE of 2013, titled because of the progressive nature of the Fair Isle knitting pattern.  After the fires got so bad, we saw it was better modified into FROLIC FREEZE.

There is no theme for work included in FROLIC FREEZE.  Though Articulate’s focus is on installation and other spatial artwork, the work you exhibit in FROLIC FREEZE is up to you. You are just asked to follow the dates in the program, leave other people’s work unchanged (unless you have their agreement) and return the space to how you found it (cleaning materials and matching paint are available). 

We also want a mix of small and large works that are installed by you with regard to their location—have a conversation with us if you think your planned work needs some negotiation.

FROLIC FREEZE PARTICIPANTS
As well as installing your own work, you are asked to come to an advance meeting for your group, and to support the group if possible through sitting the space for 3 hours, or helping put on the opening (with funds from FROLIC FREEZE fees) or preparing & printing the room sheet for your group (Word template available – each group can update the previous room sheet).

FROLIC FREEZE FEE
The fees of $60 for each artist in A and G, and $120 for each artist in B–F covers rent, modest opening costs and modest photographer's fees. (The photographer will be asked to document the relationships between works rather than focusing on separate works, so please also take your own images.)

FROLIC FREEZE WRITER
Please let us know if you would like to write about the whole project or individual iterations for the FROLIC FREEZE blog posts, or want to propose someone else as a writer. (Texts for  FAIR ISLE, FERALFERRET and FERMENT  are on the Articulate blog.)

CLOSING DATES
Please send your preference for a group ASAP to etalucitra@gmail.com . Acceptances close as soon as each group is full.  Names will be listed in the program on this page (https://articulate497.blogspot.com/p/normal_7.html) as they arrive.
