Sulfur Studios (GA), Call for Artists, Re::Claimed
Deadline: December 8th, 2019, 11:59pm EST
Sulfur Studios invites artists working in all mediums to submit artwork that is inspired by graffiti and street art to be displayed in a gallery setting. How does the context of the gallery change the impact the work has on the viewer? What happens when the work is removed from the street and placed in a white box environment? How does this transition from public to private spheres alter the reception of the work’s message? Does this in some way legitimize street art, or remove its integrity?
Juror: Lisa D. Watson is a Georgia based artist and garden designer whose environmental and social concerns are expressed in each project. Her artwork contains 90% reclaimed material such as paper products, metal, industrial wood, produce netting and more. She has used recycled objects as her medium for over 25 years and continually works towards a fully sustainable practice.
Exhibition dates: January 23rd – February 8th, 2020
