The Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (CAID) invites artists, musicians, performers, architects, poets and other creative individuals or groups to submit portfolios for consideration of the 2008 Exhibition and Program Season. In addition to the general review there will be some exhibits focusing on the following themes: Hunger, Shelter, Clothing and Size Vs. Scale, defined loosely to allow exciting new approaches.
During the 2008 Exhibition and Program Season (March 1, 2008 – February 29, 2009) the works of hundreds of local and international artists will be presented in over 10,000 square feet of CAID exhibition and performance space, at four distinct venues throughout Detroit. The venues include CAID’s Carriage House Gallery, Ladybug Gallery, MassiV at the Russell Industrial Center and Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit-main campus. MassiV is ideally suited for large sculpture, and the Carriage House Gallery for installation specific works.
