Northern Illinois University Art Museum, National Call for Entries: Transparent Factors (in Form and Content)
Deadline: July 31st, 2018
Exhibition Theme: This exhibition will examine the spectrum of interpretation of the word “transparency”; from the literal to the figurative. Artists who explore both the visual phenomenon of transparency and the concept of “transparency” in content, be that process, funding, idea or material.
Artwork may also deal with the opposite of transparency and examine opacity and/or translucency as a means of more keenly exploring the nature of transparency. Glass, water and veils as well as public meetings and inclusivity all play a role here. The exhibition will be complemented by a display and symposium of Asian reverse glass works which take full advantage of the “magic” of transparency.
Eligibility: The NIU Art museum is currently accepting submissions in all media. This call is open to all artists in the United States 18 years of age or older.
Size limitations: Two people must be able to handle and install the submitted artwork which must also fit through a single do or (36” wide x 84” tall).
In part, coming from a national Call for Entry, local invitational, and works borrowed from regional public and private collections this staff-curated exhibition is to be held at the NIU Art Museum in Winter 2018 – Spring 2019.
