open submisson for exciting show coming up - deadline Feb 28th

Calling all cutting edge and groovy artists working in any medium and in any country!

Decima International Art Projects are pleased to invite artists' submissions for "So Bring Your Rose and Ring Side Seat" - a major art show scheduled for January 2012.

The American rock band Blue Öyster Cult has long been recognised for their poetic and highly distinctive and subtle musical and textual imagery. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the release of BÖC's first album back in January 1972, Decima are turning to the band's lyrics to create an inspiring and highly unusual show. If you are not familiar with BOC, or need your memory jogging, here you are

All you need to do is find any pair of lines in any Blue Oyster Cult song and use these to inspire your work. We would at this stage only like to know which two consequetive lines you have chosen, and a brief proposal of what you want to do. To make this easier, here is a website containing the lyrics to every BOC song ever written!

This is the first round of submissions and the deadline is 28th February so get off facebook and do IT NOW - this is a VERY easy proposal to make as proposals go I'm sure you'll agree....

Please send your ideas to Please do not send heavy images or attachments - ideally just a few lines of text will do, maybe supported by one image and/or links to pics or videos. I'm afraid we can only contact those artists who are successful.

We anticipate securing a prime exhibition venue for this prestige event in London, and hope to be touring it to New York in the spring of 2012.

We welcome ideas for submissions from all divisions of the visual arts - the more varied the better.
