Washington State University’s Department of Fine Arts, Call for Submissions, The Body: Power, Meaning & Representation in Contemporary Art
Deadline: October 28th, 2018, 11:59pm PST
From their call: Washington State University’s Department of Fine Arts invites artists to submit works for consideration for a group exhibition exploring ideas about the body. We invite artists to submit works in any media including new media, photography, painting, video, performance, sculpture, installation, intermedia etc. We invite artists to interpret ideas about the body and its relationship to power and representation. The human body has always played a central role in art. Artistic representations of the body are found in nearly every culture in the world. While authority over the human body has long been determined by gender and class, in today’s highly globalized and pluralistic contemporary art world, artists view the body as a malleable site of meaning and power, not as an archetype but as a performative instrument, a vessel to be filled and surface upon which the artist or viewer may project her own fears, desires and dreams.
Artists may submit up to three (3) works of art per person or group and there is no submission fee. Artists must be 18 or older to apply.
If selected, works must arrive no later than Friday, November 9th. Artists are responsible for shipping and all works must include return postage and a shipping label. Artists that do not provide return shipping will forfeit their works. Please double-check the weight of your work in advance to ensure that you are comfortable with the anticipated expense. All works must be ready to hang. Works that arrive without proper hardware will not be hung. Artists creating installation works, new media works, or other works that are not wall-hanging or free-standing works are encouraged to submit. However, these works must include detailed installation instructions or will not be included.
The exhibition will take place from November 15th, 2018 – January 2019
