We are looking for art students and recent graduates who play electric guitar, electric bass, keyboards, drums and/or sing, for the creation of an artwork by Ari Benjamin Meyers, which will be the central aspect of his solo exhibition at CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo.
The exhibition will open in the last week of January 2024 and will remain on view for four weeks; in the week before the opening, there will be five days of rehearsal and preparation together with the artist.
During the exhibition it is necessary for the performers to be available, with some flexibility, during the opening hours of CCA: Monday-Thursday, 2:00-7:00pm; and Friday-Saturday, 10:00am-2:00pm; plus possibly some late-night sessions.
To facilitate the participation of students, the exhibition will take place during the academic semester break.
The performers will receive a fee.
Some experience being in bands would be helpful, but more important is a certain energy, curiousness and attitude in the approach to playing an instrument as opposed to musical mastery; you should somewhat know your way around your instrument, but we are not principally looking for professional musicians or singers. The ability to read music is appreciated but not necessary.
If you are interested, please send a bio (including any musical experience) and a short note why you might be interested in playing in a band as part of this exhibition. Links to websites / videos / social media pages are welcomed.
Applications must be sent to email@example.com until March 31, 2023.
