BASIC OUTLINE

DENOMINATION: ART-COMMUNICATION. THE EVENT. ALGARVE 2005.

PLACE: FOZ DE ODELEITE (ALGARVE PORTUGAL)  site Gracosa

DATE: MARCH-SEPTEMBER 2005

AIM: THE CREATION OF A DRAFT IN FORM OF AN EPHEMERICAL ARCHITECTURE AND MULTI-MEDIA ARTWORK, FOR A MUSEUM AND COMMUNICATION CENTRE FOR ARTISTS.

PARTICIPANTS: 1-100 (?)

PROCEDURE: ALL THE PARTICIPATING ARTISTS WILL GATHER THEIR IDEAS , MATERIALS, PROYECTIONS AND DIGITAL OR OTHER ARTFORMS TO CREATE A DRAFT OR PROTOTYPE FOR THE FINAL CONSTRUCTION OF THIS MUSEUM AND COMMUNICATION CENTRE. 

THE FIRST GUIDELINE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION IS TO USE VERY LIGHT MATERIALS AND TO START FORMING A COMPOSITION AND COMBINATION OF SPACES WHERE EVERY ARTIST DISPLAYS HIS ART, MOSTLY IN THE FORM OF PROYECTIONS ON SCREENS, BUT ANY OTHER ARTFORM IS POSSIBLE. THIS WILL OBLIGE THE ARTISTS TO COOPERATE WITH ONE ANOTHER, BEARING IN MIND THEIR OWN ARTWORK BUT ALSO THE WHOLE.
THE STRUCTURE MUST ALWAYS REMAIN EASILY REMOVABLE AND WILL NOT BE BUILT TO STAY THERE.
WHEN THE EVENT IS FINISHED, AFTER THE FINAL SHOW, THE CONSTRUCTION WILL BE DISMANTLED.
BEING NOT ONLY A MUSEUM, BUT ALSO A CENTRE FOR THE ARTISTS, THE CONSTRUCTION WILL ALSO HAVE TO BE BUILT TO LIVE IN DURING THE EVENT.

PARTICIPATION CAN BE ANYTIME BETWEEN THE BEGINNING AND THE END OF THE EVENT. THE DURATION OF PARTICIPATION OF ANY ARTIST IS NOT LIMITED NOR FIXED. IT CAN BE DURING ALL THE MONTHS THE EVENT GOES ON, OR ONLY DURING A FEW DAYS.

IMPACT ON NATURE: THE ARTWORK AND CONSTRUCTION BEING AN EPHEMERICAL ARCHITECTURE, THE NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE SURROUNG NATURE WILL BE TOTALLY INEXISTANT. THE IMPACT ON THE PLOT WILL BE MINIMAL, AND WILL ONLY CONSIST IN THE NORMAL USAGE OF ANY SPACE THAT IS QUITE HEAVILY WALKED 
ON FOR SOME MONTHS. WE BELIEVE THAT THIS IMPACT WILL BE RESTAURED IN SOME WEEKS AFTER THE PLOT IS ABANDONED.

NECESSARY INFRASTRUCTURE: AS THE AREA OF THE EVENT IS FAR FROM ANY INSTALLATION, THE AIM WOULD BE TO BE AUTONOMOUS DURING THE WHOLE EVENT, WORKING WITH GENERATORS TO PROVIDE ELECTRICITY IF NECESSARY.

FOR THE EVENT: PLOT OF LAND OF APROX 300 M2

FOR THE PRACTICAL INFRASTRUCTURE: HIGIENIC INSTALLATION AS PER LOCAL REQUIREMENTS; RUBBISH TONS; FIRST AID: THE ORGANIZATION WILL PROVIDE A FIRST AID BOX.  

FOR THE ARTISTS (TO BE PROVIDED BY THEMSELVES): TENTS, MATERIALS

LEGAL ASPECT: 
PERMISSIONS:
THE ORGANIZATION WILL COMPLY WITH THE NECESSARY PERMISSIONS

INSURANCE:
