Cheat Codes: Calling all Artists

October 8, 2011 BY danariely

Cheat codesArtists from around the world are invited to attend a discussion about behavioral economics, dishonesty and cheating at the Center for Advanced Hindsight on October 25 at 7:30 PM EST.  (Artists who do not live within driving distance of Durham, NC can watch the forum streaming live online.)

Interested artists should RSVP to Catherine Howard (irrationalcreativity@gmail.com) by October 24 by 9 PM for driving directions and/or the online streaming link.

After the forum, applications will be circulated to artists interested in creating artwork to depict their reflection on cheating and dishonesty.  Applications will include a brief explanation of the artist’s creative process and 2-3 digital images of past work.

Please submit applications to Catherine Howard at irrationalcreativity@gmail.com by October 28.

Artists will be notified if they are selected to participate by October 29 and will receive a $100 stipend to complete their piece.  There is no limitation to the style or media of pieces created for “Cheat Codes,” but all work must be completed by November 26. 

Artwork created for “Cheat Codes” will be on display the Center for Advanced Hindsight from December 3, 2011 to January 31, 2012.  An exhibit catalogue / book, including responses and reflections by the artists and the researchers at The Center For Advanced Hindsight, will be published. Each artist will receive a copy.

Artists will retain all rights to their piece. Works will be returned to artists after the exhibit by February 15, 2012.  If the piece is purchased, the $100 stipend will be deducted from the purchase price.
