Is the Gallery accepting installations or performances this year?
No. The gallery is focusing on prints, sculpture, digital video, and animation.
All installations and performances can be submitted to Emerging Technologies.
Are you accepting Web or Internet art works?
No, please submit Web or Internet art works to Web Graphics.
If I'm accepted can I frame the work using glass?
No. All framing must use plexiglas.
I am a bit unclear about the number of works and slides that are to be submitted with the form. Are you saying that I can submit only four works of art per form?
Yes. And no slides should be submitted. All work must be submitted via the SIGGRAPH 2003 online submission system (see Submission Procedure Checklist for static-work requirements). You must ALSO send a CD-ROM that includes the same images in 300-dpi TIFF format.
Video and animation submissions must include one NTSC VHS videotape cued up to run five minutes. You must ALSO send a CD-ROM that includes an image in 300-dpi TIFF format.
Can I submit two images per work of art, one image of the
piece and one detail of that piece of art?
I would like to submit an interactive online artwork for the Art Gallery. Would it be possible to submit only the URL?
Sorry, we are not accepting interactive online artworks this year.
Will SIGGRAPH 2003 pay for the shipping and framing of my work?
No. If your work is accepted, you are responsible for framing (no glass, please), crating, shipping and the shipping insurance. SIGGRAPH 2003 will insure the work while it's at SIGGRAPH 2003.
I was going to mount my work. Do you have any
For oversized C-prints or similar output, some artists prefer their
work hinge-mounted, some cold-mounted on aluminum. If you go
with the hinge, it will inevitably warp a little. Cold mounting ensures
that the print lies flat, but it is a dicey job, so expert framers all
appear to have the same policy: they'll cold mount it ONLY if they
also output it (because if they screw up, they can always
output it again). It is wise to have them professionally frame your
work while they have it.
I have an over-sized work that I just want push-pinned to the
wall. Is this acceptable?
No. We require that it be professionally framed.
