Site:Brooklyn (NY), International Call for Artists: Abstraction at Large
Deadline: March 1st, 2018
From their call: Abstraction, one of the most radical innovations of art history, stripped away the recognizable, threw it to the winds, and laid bare the purely abstract. This show seeks to bring forward how abstraction shapes contemporary art practice, not simply as a part of art history but as a living visual language.
Eligibility: This call for submission is open to all artists 18 years of age or older. This is a juried exhibition for artists working in two dimensional media. The exhibition will reflect the ambitious, innovative and contemporary in painting, drawing, printmaking, mixed media and photography today.
Juror: Eleanor Heartney is a contributing Editor to Art in America and Artnews and has written extensively on contemporary art issues for such other publications as Artpress, Art and Auction, The New Art Examiner, the Washington Post and The New York Times. She received the College Art Association’s Frank Jewett Mather Award for distinction in art criticism in 1992.
