3-Legged Dog exists to produce new, original works in theater, performance, dance, media and hybrid forms. 3-Legged Dog’s mission is to explore narrative possibilities created by digital technology, to foster self-expression and skill in young artists through educational initiatives and to provide an environment for our artists to create new tools and modes of expression so that they can excel across a range of disciplines.
3-Legged Dog invites artists to submit multimedia artworks for inclusion in 3LD’s Liminal Stage. Works will be selected for public exhibit at 3LD Art & Technology Center, located at the juncture of high traffic destinations such as the WTC, New York Stock Exchange, Zuccotti Park, Battery Park and Trinity Church. As part of the program, multimedia artworks will be featured in 3LD’s iconic lobby The Tube, installed in 3LD’s street level studio windows and projected on the façade of 3LD’s neighboring building.
Curated by 3-Legged Dog staff, Liminal Stage focuses on work that can engage a street level audience using innovative technology while embracing risk-taking and pushing aesthetic boundaries. Exhibitions will be open to the public, free of charge.
This program is for digital and media artists who have work ready to be shown to the public that is generally self-contained. Your exhibition can be shown from the street through our windows, projected on the adjacent wall and/or it can be installed in the Tube (our lobby) to be open to the public during the day, as well as during the performances of our other resident artists. Exhibitions lengths range from 2 – 4 weeks.
We work within a cooperative exhibition model. This means:
- Projects must be self-producing. 3LD offers technical and development consultations, but cannot offer any commissions or human resources.
- 3LD will assist with press and promote your work on our website, e-blasts and brochures.
- 3LD will provide equipment based on availability.
- The Tube (lobby of 3LD) can be equipped for video projection or freestanding artworks.
- The 20′ x 11′ windows of 3LD also have a long 3′ x 18′ frosted panel to show video projections that can be seen from the street.
- 3LD owns a 12,000 lumen projector capable of projecting an approximately20′ x 12′ image on the blank white wall facing the center (the back of a former Syms store).
- Artists will retain 90% of the proceeds from any sales of their work.
- Artist must provide their own gallery docent and gallery hours will be determined by the needs of the exhibition.
