Dear all 
 
Please note:
 
*******************
 
Call for Scores: Duluth Fluxfest
 
 
 
As outlined in the following press release, the Tweed Museum in Duluth
is
hosting a retrospective exhibition of the works of Dick Higgins,
inventor of
the term ³intermedia² and impresario of the event score. To honor his
role
in the invention of twentieth-century art, and to have a good time, we
are
developing an exhibition of event scores and a week of performances of
the
scores to accompany this show. We request your help; please send in your
event score and encourage others to do likewise.
 
 
 
All scores will be exhibited in the Lecture Hall Gallery of the Tweed
Museum; scores accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope will be
returned at the close of the exhibition. Selected scores will be
performed
on the University of Minnesota ­ Duluth campus during the week of
October 12
­ 19.
 
 
 
What is an event score? It is a document, often highly visually
interesting
in its own right, that instructs the reader or viewer to perform
acts-‹acts
of thought or physical acts, imaginary or actual-‹either privately or in
public. Event scores are texts that make things happen. Other than this,
there are no further parameters. See the Tweed press release below for
more
on the history of the event score; for a sample of some scores, go to
http://www.performance-research.net/pages/epublications.html
 
 
 
 
 
Please spread the word; one does not need to be an officially designated
artist to participate in this exhibition. Scores by postal workers,
waitrons, programmers, administrative assistants, lawyers, midwives,
teachers, truck drivers, piano instructors, landscapers, and factory
workers, for instance, are strongly encouraged. Collaborative scores
will
also be enthusiastically received.
 
 
 
Send your score, by August 30 (or thereabouts), to:
 
 
 
Ann Klefstad
 
5913 London Road
 
Duluth, MN 55804
 
 
 
Please include an SASE if you wish your score returned; also include a
cover
letter with your name, the title if any of the score, your contact
information, and any other information you wish to supply to
exhibit-goers.
All participants will receive documentation of their participation in
the
exhibition. All scores will be exhibited at the Tweed Museum; you will
be
notified if your score is performed, and documentation of the
performance
will be provided on request.
 
 
 
Thank you for your interest! I hope to see your work soon.

ADDITIONAL EVENTS:
 
 
 
³The Secret World of Fluxus: An Exhibition of Event Scores.²  This
exhibition will feature event scores solicited from artists and
Fluxpeople
around the world who are connected by mail and the internet, through
informal performance groupings, internet mailing lists such as the
Fluxlist,
and more traditional mail-art networks. This layer of the creative
world,
nearly unknown to the official artworld but of vast reach and importance
to
its participants, is open to participation from anyone, not just
officially
licensed ³artists.² Come and experience the growth of Higgins¹s ideas of
transforming everyday life into creative choice: Higgins, one of the
founders of the internet mailing list ³Fluxlist,² actively participated
in
the growth and spread of Fluxus ideas beyond the original participants
in
the movement. This exhibition will show a sampling of the results. You
may
find that you wish to become a citizen of this world. In the Lecture
Hall
Gallery of the Tweed Museum.
