Monolith - Visual Art Repository

Spectacle, Inc. is an art non-profit organization with the mission to create a monumental legacy.

We are building Monolith™, the largest single-block, permanent public sculpture, to be created by artist Dario Santacroce. Using the scientific rigor of contemporary material science, we have developed a formula to produce a unique ultra-resistant stone material, capable of withstanding the harshest atmospheric conditions and resisting erosion for millions of years.

Monolith™ will be a snapshot of our epoch, and will contain Nucleus™ - the vessel designed to carry humanity’s most important legacy through the ages.

This notice is a call for the inclusion of visual art within the Monolith Visual Art Repository. Specifically, the Repository will reside within the walls of Nucleus™ at the core of Monolith™.

The Monolith Visual Art Repository will digitally store the work and biographical information of contemporary visual artists. The purpose of the Monolith Visual Art Repository is to provide the artistic context of the epoch in which Monolith™ has been created. Serving as our epoch’s artistic pulse, frozen beyond time, transcending the ages, the Monolith Visual Art Repository will allow contemporary artists to reach future generations.

This is an unprecedented opportunity to write the future of art history by storing clear and accurate information of our epoch’s contemporary art and artists. We welcome submissions from all visual contemporary artists.
