Calling all GIF makers, during Prime Time on June 30, the MCA is hosting a crowd-sourced public celebration of that omnipresent mode of digital expression, the GIF. You are invited to send us original GIFs designed to fuel a late-night internet café video wall; display a stupid joke, feature your favorite celebrity moment, summarize your latest dark web art theory, heal from a recent cyborg heart break, MS paint your fav dystopian futurememe, etc. All (appropriate for public consumption) GIFs submitted will be screened in the fourth-floor lobby of the museum during the event. Of all displayed GIFs, the 25 GIFs that highlight contemporary GIF culture best will be featured on the MCA blog after the event and their makers will be contacted.
Submissions are accepted until June 25, 2018.
- The GIF should be 3–10 seconds long.
- Anyone can submit a GIF. The person submitting the GIF must have created the GIF.
Consider signing your GIF with a mark or signature.
To submit your GIF, please email your .gif file to firstname.lastname@example.org AND, using #MCAPrimeTime:
