Subject: Bike Culture proposals wanted for UCR Sweeney Art Gallery by end of
     June 2010

UCR Sweeney Art Gallery is seeking proposals from artists, filmmakers,
designers, performers, urban planners, interventionists, activists, and bike
aficionados for an upcoming exhibition this fall that will inaugurate its
new gallery at UCR?s Culver Center of the Arts. Partial information is
listed below and complete information can be found in the attached PDF.

Seeking Proposals:           Bike Culture

University of California, Riverside?s Sweeney Art Gallery is seeking
proposals from artists, filmmakers, designers, performers, urban planners,
interventionists, activists, and bike aficionados for Bike Culture, the
gallery?s inaugural exhibition in its new location at UCR?s Culver Center of
the Arts. Proposals may take the form of original work or documentation,
2-D, 3-D, video, and/or public programming and events, such as screenings,
public actions, and performances that can take place indoors or outdoors.
Preference is for work easily transportable or located in Southern
California for pick up.
Exploring the effects of bikes on art and culture, Bike Culture includes
customized bikes, bike designs, and artist projects that use the bicycle and
human-powered machines as both metaphors and realizations for restructuring
human habitats. In the past few years, bicycle activists, advocates, and
aficionados have proven to be vociferous in their desire for reimagining the
urban landscape in the U.S. It is a reflection of a shifting value system
that looks towards alternate means of transportation, the promotion of
healthy lifestyles, and a cultural shift from consumption to sustainability.
Organized by UCR Sweeney Art Gallery.
The exhibition inaugurates UCR Sweeney Art Gallery?s new space in UCR?s
Barbara and Art Culver Center of the Arts, both of which open to the public
with a gala weekend, October 7-9, 2010. Sweeney and Culver are located on a
downtown pedestrian wall, located next door to UCR?s California Museum of
Photography. The exhibition coincides with Riverside?s inaugural 2010
Riverside Citrus Classic Bike Run on October 17, 2010.
