Dear Friends, Colleagues and Amateurs of contemporary art,

Check out this open call for (free) participation in the project of Jan
Christensen, within the "BoundLess" group exhibition in Stenersenmuseet,
Oslo, Norway, curated by Henry Meyric Hughes. I think it's a very good
project in that kind of an institutional context.

Please send your material / questions directly to: jan_b_christensen_at_yahoo.com

For informations about my Artinfo-l mailing list and how to unsubscribe,
please have a look at the end of this mail.

Best wishes, Kristofer Paetau


This is an open call for contributing material to a project intended for a
group show in Stenersenmuseet, Oslo, Norway, curated by Henry Meyric
Hughes. The show is scheduled to open in February, 2005.

I have been invited as a participating artist for the show "BoundLess",
which has a theme based on the idea of artists travelling, creating
networks of affiliated people and the notion that creativity is relative
and subject to your meetings and subsequent inspirations.

I would like to open this up further by inviting ANYBODY to submit material
such as text or images - or both - which will fit on a sheet of A4 in black
and white. It could be a text, an article, a drawing, a note, a photograph
or whatever. Your material will be included in the show as a reproduction,
without any restrictions or censorship, and I will furthermore make an
effort to reproduce selected images and illustrations (blown up as posters
or painted up as some sort of background decoration), as a backdrop to the
show. I will even try to execute any instructions you supply, to the best
of my ability. There is no limit to the number of pieces you submit, but
please note that each work of art should be limited to a single sheet of paper.

Please forward this email to ANYBODY you might think would find it interesting.

You may credit this show as a group show, in which you participate by your
involvement in this installation, though I can not guarantee that details
regarding each participant will be included for additional printed matter,
apart from what I will myself produce, as part of the show, which will be
some sort of printed document consisting of all contributions, including
credits (names only,) and, hopefully, a poster. The complete document will
then be available for download as a PDF from my homepage (
http://www.janchristensen.org ).

I will respond personally to every contributor with detailed information
regarding the exhibition. Please note that there will not be any fees or
reimbursements included for participants to this project.

Please be aware that copyrights will not be respected. Popular culture is
founded on appropriation.

Please send ANY ideas, texts and material to me by email as soon as
possible and no later than 31 December, 2004.
