QUAD, the new centre for Contemporary Art and Film in Derby, UK, invites artists, filmmakers and programmers/curators working with still or moving image to submit proposals for exhibition on the DIGITAL SCREENS section of QUAD during the period 26th Jan 2008 to 22nd Feb 2009.

We are looking for works that will be shown on LCD screens in QUAD. The theme we would like you to respond to is R-evolution. Itís been 150 years since the publication of ĎOn the Origin of Speciesí; Charles Darwinís (r)evolutionary theory is as important today as it was back then. This inspirational work continues to provoke dialogue and to rouse debate about humankind, science, religion, nature and society.

We would like to explore the legacy of this seminal work in a variety of fields, including (but not limited to) evolutionary theory, biodiversity, ecology, biology, social sciences and organisation theory.

We are looking or a broad imaginative response from contemporary and historical understandings including possible references to: organism development in a broad sense (including societal structures), growth and recession economical theory, nature and humankind.

These exhibition opportunities are open to any artist / filmmaker / curator / programmer based in the UK or Internationally. Selected proposals will be included in the QUAD website and will be profiled as part of the QUAD screening programme.
