Translocated is a new platform for research and artistic practices centred around urban space and the interface between spatial reality / imaginary.
The purpose of Translocated is to encourage experimentation, exchange, reflection and discussion across artistic practices dealing with space and psychogeography.
Translocated is accepting submissions including (but not limited to):
* performance and live art
* essays and text
* interactive, web-based projects
* cross-platform projects
Translocated does not currently accept the following types of projects:
* music projects
* community projects
* student projects

Translocated aims to launch a yearly web exhibition in the first instance. All successful works will be featured on the Translocated website. Every project will benefit from a dedicated webpage with the possibility of hosting images, videos and other files relevant to the project, as well as an artist page where the artist can share their vision, practice and how their work corresponds to the enquiries of this critical platform.
The web exhibition will be announced to a network of academic and artistic institutions inviting visitors to participate to a critical forum as part of its opening period. All successful works will then continue to form part of an archive of yearly curated exhibition.
Translocated will host a biennial exhibition in a location to be announced in due course. A list of works will be curated from all accepted entries from the two previous years submissions.
The exhibition will present selected projects installed according to the specifications defined by the artists, and be accompanied by a programme of events and activities.
Translocated welcomes submissions from all sectors of the community. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you require this information in a different format.
