12 x 12: 12 Artists. 12 Installations.
What sparked the demand for Reality TV is as unclear as its status as a credible art form, What is clear, is its influence on literature. After watching clips of Reality TV juxtaposed with clips of the Iraq War, Suzanne Collins found her inspiration for The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games trilogy went on to sell more than 65 million copies in the U.S. alone. The three films based on the books have taken in a record breaking $2,252,427,311 worldwide with the fourth set to be released in November 2015.
12 x 12: 12 Artists. 12 Installations will attempt to integrate traditional forms of art making, installation, performance, video with elements of Reality TV. Twelve artists will be selected and challenged to create 72 12” x 12” pieces that must be installed in a designated 6’x 6’ space by opening night. The thematic prompt for the show is “Coconut Grove (The oldest modern continuously-inhabited neighborhood in Miami),” but the artists can interpret it however they wish. Each artist must post 2 “confessionals” a week, documenting their progress on designated social networks with the appropriate and required hashtags. Confessionals can be in the form of status updates, sketches, or photos, but there must be at least one video post per week. This will bring participants into situations and environments that they would otherwise never be a part of. The use of confessionals are two significant tropes of Reality TV. These elements will be amalgamated into the art space and process with the intention of gaining a deeper understanding of the “Reality” phenomena and its impact on popular culture.
KROMA is located at 3670 Grand Avenue.
