The Lab AD exhibition is modeled after last year’s BECA Foundation first non-juried, experimental, open exhibition titled, 12x12x122.  It was one of BECA’s most successful exhibitions to date in terms of attendance and online viewing.  For Lab AD, the BECA Foundation has made a concerted effort to broaden the variety of acceptable works, including 2-D, 3-D and video.  There will be 20 artists, architects and/or designers selected from those exhibiting to have their works featured online at www.BECAICAD.org  beginning February 8th.  Works were not required to conform to any particular medium, style, theme or concept. 

BECA is an acronym for Bridge for Emerging Contemporary Art and the core belief system at The BECA Foundation is that “New art + new design fuels the best of what’s yet to come on this planet.”  With a growing international BECA network now numbered above 30,000, it is more important than ever for BECA to ensure that in addition to hosting the physical exhibition, that the aforementioned selection of works by the 20 featured artists, architects + designers be made available online at www.BECAICAD.org for those who are unable to attend in person. Providing global online accessibility to its exhibitions has been a focal point for BECA since its first exhibition was held in January 2008. BECA exhibitions remain online at www.BECAICAD.org in perpetuity for anyone around the world who has an internet connection.  An online archive of previous projects + exhibitions may be viewed at www.BECAgallery.com and www.CurateThis.org

Some works of art + design exhibited in the Lab AD exhibition will be available for sale. The BECA Foundation will receive 25% of the sale price and the artist, architect or designer will receive 75% of the sale price. Registration fees and sales proceeds received by The BECA Foundation are used to further its international public arts programming and to help sustain operations.
