MUX’s structure is derived from the term ‘multiplexing’ and operates as such: it allows for multiple data streams delivering varied signals to unite over a single channel. MUX offers a stereoscopic approach to curating new media that establishes perspectival depth through the formation of a body of work. Considering experimental works that explore, create, and challenge systems, modes of representation, and ideologies through the use of creative audio / video / performative language, MUX’s structurally conscious network subsumes geographic distances in exchange for a temporal omnipresence.
MUX: Asheville is a Video Art Festival created by video artists, art theorists, curators, & educators seeking to expand the field for new media and video art, easing the imbalance between artists and exhibition platforms.
The event honors work that explores, creates, and challenges systems and ideologies, using creative audio/video language sets to communicate ideas, systems, and narratives.
Submissions chosen for exhibition at MUX: Asheville will be selected without bias for degree-holding artists, and without bias towards extensive exhibition history. Work will be selected strictly for being quality contemporary art and for fulfilling all submission guidelines.
An international call for entries is open now through January 20th, 2016. A body of submitted works will be selected by a panel of jurors, and will be exhibited publicly in Asheville, NC (Summer 2016).
