Hello friends and colleagues,
I am  jurying/curating an exhibition at The LAB, a nonprofit gallery space in 
San  Francisco, along with artist Steve Dye, and we are distributing the call 
for  entries. I'm excited by the theme and we are seeking submissions from 
both  local and international/national artists... please see the description 
below  and feel free to forward to others...

CALL  FOR ENTRIES
Code-Switchers
Jurors: Steve Dye and Stephanie Syjuco
The  LAB, San Francisco, CA
_http://www.thelab.org_ (http://www.thelab.org/) 
How  are contemporary artists dealing with issues of cultural complexity, 
multiple  allegiances, and hybrid forms? How are they communicating these ideas 
and  addressing their audience? Using the metaphor of “code-switching,” a  
linguistic term referring to the use of more than one language within a single  
conversation, this juried exhibition seeks submissions from artists  
investigating a variety of approaches to cultural and material bilingualisms,  
(mis)translations, appropriations, and the purposeful misuse of “proper”  
communication codes.
Proposals for new projects and collaborative works are welcome. This  
exhibition is open to all forms of work including visual art (video,  installation, 
painting, sculpture, drawing, photo, etc), sound/audio,  performance-based 
disciplines, social practice projects and hybrid  forms.
Deadline for entries: received by 5PM, Thursday, July  30, 2008.
Notification of acceptance: mid-August 2008.
Exhibition runs: September 17 – October 11, 2008.
Entry fee: $10 current LAB members; $20 non-members (See  information on how 
to become a LAB member for as little as $25 at 
_http://www.thelab.org/members.htm_ (http://www.thelab.org/members.htm) )
Work Samples:
--1  page artist statement, including contact information
--1  page CV
--1  page project statement for new work (if applicable)
--1  page image list with: artist name, title of work, size, medium, and  
year.
--up  to five 35mm slides, five jpgs (under 2 MB) on a Mac-compatible CD-ROM, 
OR  video segment(s) not to exceed five minutes long on a VHS or DVD per 
entry of  actual work to be exhibited. All materials should be clearly marked with 
the  artist’s name and title of work.
Artists will be responsible for the transport and shipping of artworks  to 
and from the gallery unless this is a significant hardship for the artist.  In 
such cases, please indicate in your application what type of financial or  
other support would be needed to realize the proposed project.
The LAB will make every attempt to safeguard submitted materials, but  cannot 
be responsible for loss or damage. Never send master slides or tapes.  
Provide a SASE with sufficient postage for the return of materials  (optional). 
Please send submissions to:

Steven Dye is a Sound Artist, Filmmaker and Musician whose work  actively 
explores the formal and social qualities of the materials he is  using. His work 
takes many forms including installation, animation, instrument  building, 
sculpture, field recording, sound and music composition, expanded  cinema, and 
performance. The common thread through all his works is an  enthusiasm for the 
phenomenon of sound, light and perception. Dye received a  degree from the 
California College of Arts and Crafts in 1990, is a frequent  contributor to the 
Illuminated Corridor project, and works collaboratively  with the performing 
arts groups Wet Gate, Santo Subito, and Epic[Abridged. He  is currently the 
Exhibitions Technical Manager at the San Francisco Museum of  Modern Art. 

Stephanie Syjuco is a visual artist whose recent work uses the  tactics of 
bootlegging, counterfeiting and re-appropriation to address issues  of cultural 
biography and economic power structures. Born in the Philippines  in 1974, she 
received her MFA from Stanford University and BFA from the San  Francisco Art 
Institute. She has shown nationally and internationally at PSI,  the Whitney 
Museum of American Art, The New Museum, SFMOMA, Yerba Buena Center  for the 
Arts, The San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, The Contemporary  Museum 
Honolulu, and was included in the California Biennial at the Orange  County Museum of 
Art. Syjuco’s residencies include The Atlantic Center for the  Arts, 
Headlands Center for the Arts, KALA Art Center, Skowhegan, and the  Center for 
Metamedia, Czech Republic. In 2007 she exhibited a global  counterfeiting project at 
art spaces in Beijing, Manila, and Istanbul. Syjuco  has had visiting faculty 
appointments at Stanford University and The  California College of the Arts 
and currently lives and works in San  Francisco.=
