GIMME THE REMOTE - HOW TO APPLY TO CURATE A CO-STAR TAPE:
- A Co-Star tape can feature a group of unseen movies: they can be united by a theme, or from the same geographic location, or by a single artist. Feature-length work is also acceptable.
- No more than two new Co-Star tapes will be released each year, so we will be understandably demanding of the curators with whom we work. Co-Star curators will not only select the movies, but provide a printed context through which viewers can understand their importance/the curator's insight. This could include an essay, interviews with the artists, historical/geographical/technicalinformation. This printed information will accompany each tape in the form of a booklet or poster. You may also include additional content on the video, such as: interviews with the artists, the artist's home movies, anything.
- Joanie 4 Jackie will produce, distribute and promote the tape, and the curator will receive royalties equal to those of the artists featured on the tape.
- If you are interested in applying to curate a Joanie 4 Jackie Co-Star tape please send us a one-page proposal describing the works you have in mind, why they should be seen, and the context you could provide in a printed poster or booklet on video. We welcome curators of all ages and backgrounds, as well as curators working in pairs or groups.
