"If you wanna fly, you gotta give up the shit that weighs you down." - Toni Morrison

Salmagundi Studios is inviting artists, performers and other creative dreamers, inventors and vagabonds to participate in our second anniversary group show, exploring the theme of "Flight".

Do you dream of flying? When presented with the dilemma, "fight or flight", is your first instinct to opt for the better part of valour? Have you, through necessity or expedience, had to flee a situation or locale? Do you indulge in flights of fancy? When about to embark on a flight, do feel excitement, anticipation or dread?

An obsession for artists, dreamers, visionaries and inventors throughout time, analogous for ambitions and fantasies, and now such a common practice it's positively mundane. But next time your heading on a flight, just remember you're sitting in a 400 tonne machine, flying through the air, 11 kilometres up in the sky, at around 900 kmh - the correct reaction is FUUCK!

We want your reaction - email us through this email

The event will be held at the Studios in Arncliffe on Saturday 21st May, 2011,

To be included in the first round of publicity, applicants must be received and accepted by the end of March,

Send us a brief Bio, contact details, photos and dimensions of the work, if completed, or a description of the proposed piece and examples of previous work, if not. Please include any websites or online folios you may have.

We'd love your participation in celebrating our second birthday so get in touch.
