Open Call for Online exhibition in 2018 | CRT TV Art Exhibition Each year, This Might Not Work curates a series of artworks for Red May. The works are specifically made to be shown online or on CRT TV screen. The project will operate as ‘reverse propaganda’ made to be shown in gallery exhibitions, window fronts, apartment shows, workspaces, libraries and public spaces around the world during the month of May. The Project started in 2017 with TMNW in collaboration with RED MAY collective curated 20 works, from local and international artists and shown in a verity of venues in Seattle and Helsinki.

The aim of the exhibition is to showcase artworks that are related to the contemporary condition of globalization, networks, and alternative possibilities. The theme of the exhibition, as well as RED MAY festival, is a month-long vacation from Capitalism. The rules? There are only two. First, riff on red. And second, assume for a month that the market is not the solution to the problems that the market creates.
