Make your voice heard in Tony Labat’s I WANT YOU competition.Added to the calendar on Wednesday Aug 6th, 2008 5:27 PM
Riffing on army recruitment campaigns of World Wars I and II, artist Tony Labat invites you to make your own demands of the public. What if you had one minute to be the finger-pointing Uncle Sam? I Want You . . . to do what? On September 4, individuals can deliver one-minute monologues to the artist in solo auditions. A week later, 50 contestants chosen from the auditions will appear before a panel of judges, a live audience, and a host of documentary cameras. Judges will offer opinions of each monologue, but the live audience will ultimately choose five finalists. Finalists will have their images and monologues printed on an “I Want You” poster, to be put up around the city in the week leading up to the presidential election. Labat will celebrate the finalists and debut a new video piece made from the audition footage on November 8.
Enter by emailing your contact information and a draft slogan to edu [at] sfmoma.org by September 1.
