Open call for remixing an unpublished sound art piece by Latin-American conceptual art master Edgardo Antonio Vigo.

Edgardo Antonio Vigo (1928–1997).

From his quiet hometown of La Plata, Vigo developed an extensive network of contacts in the Americas and Europe, making the city a hub of the international mail art movement—a global network of artists who exchanged ideas, art, and poetry through the postal system. From his defiantly local position, Vigo developed an internationalism tempered by a sharp critique of the foreign policy of the United States, from its role in the Vietnam War to its support of authoritarian Latin American governments.

Interested in mass media and alternative channels of communication, Vigo nevertheless maintained an intimate human touch, producing handmade works that he bluntly called cosas, or “things,” to challenge the hierarchies of aesthetic tradition. Consistent with his embrace of mail art, which involves the participation of a recipient, he developed instructions, actions, and visual poems to be carried out or completed by others. He also published magazines that promoted an accessible, democratized art in place of the unique and valuable art object.

The invitation

Setting as a starting point the mail art´s dynamics, the colavoratives efforts of el Centro de Artes Experimentales Vigo (The Center for experimental art Vigo) CAEV, the Publishing house Ediciones Nimia and the record label Mantraña, sends out an invitation to all artists, sound poets and noise musicians, to remix an unpublished sound art piece by the master himself, entitled “Homenaje a una pensión de estudiantes” (Homage to a student hostel) from 1969.
A selection of the remixes send will be publish in a disc format as unique objects using stamps and prints by Vigo  to create the art work for the packeges. Only 100 numbered copies will be made.

In order to follow Vigo´s production methods and ideology, the totality of the remixes will become part of the archives of El Centro de Artes Experimentales Vigo (Center for Experiemental Arts) CAEV.

The reception starts april 30 2015 and closes June 30 of the same year.

The remixes must be sent in .wav format. Alongside the remix a brief conceptual and technical description of the piece and personal data of the artist (es) must be sent.

 The reception of the remixes will be made via email at the following address:  devenirciclico@gmail.com
