The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, is inviting applications from artists working in interactive new media — for possible inclusion in a 2011 exhibition titled “Erasure“. The theme of the exhibition will play on the idea of removing or erasing something, to create something new. There will be an informal chat and short presentation on the exhibition on 18th November 2009 at the Burslem School of Art in Stoke-on-Trent, from 5pm to 7pm. Light refreshments will be available. Artists selected to have their work on display will be asked to ‘open source’ their source files and code. Further details from the exhibition weblog or from: firstname.lastname@example.org
