Site:Brooklyn (NY), International Call for Artists: Drawing
Deadline: October 21st, 2019, 11:59pm MST
From their call: Site:Brookyn is asking you to think small! In the contemporary art world, the notion that “bigger is better” is everywhere. From massive sculptural installations to giant canvases, the small, delicate, and pared down seem to have little place. Against such an idea, this show asks artists to go in the opposite direction and think about the intimacy and beauty of art that explores space, color, and form on a miniature scale. Site:Brooklyn is looking for works across all mediums — painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, video, and multimedia. Our goal is to exhibit a wide array of work, truly representing the expansive world of small art.
What is the relationship between recycling and art? We constantly seek out ways to deal with what we produce, Drawing
Drawing has been radically transformed in the last 100 years, as countless artists reimagined the traditional concepts of drawing and expanded the medium’s definition beyond gesture and form. This expanded definition included mark-making that ventured off the paper, into multimedia, film, sculpture and much else. However, in recent years, many artists have returned to a more gestural and representational mode. In this new and dynamic tension between tradition and experimental visions, Site:Brooklyn is looking for works, across all mediums and processes, which showcase the diversity and range of drawing’s place in contemporary art.
