JUSTICE

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

What comes to mind when you see the word JUSTICE? Does JUSTICE conjure images of throngs of people marching for civil rights or youth holding signs at a climate change rally? Perhaps you think of issues surrounding systemic racism, data privacy, urban design, labor, food deserts, or how public goods are dispersed.

What happens when we focus on notions of JUSTICE that address the policies that govern our communities, the products that shape our lives, and even the health of the planet? JUSTICE can be personal, political, and often in a state of change with respect to history, newly evolving digital spaces, or different stages of life. Thus, as our global society evolves, our ideas of JUSTICE often need to be reevaluated, updated, and discussed.

In 2022-2023, Science Gallery Atlanta will open the JUSTICE exhibition season with a 9,000-square-foot exhibition at the historic Pullman Rail Yards, accompanied by a suite of public programs -- all informed by a global community of creatives and thought leaders in collaboration with artists, researchers, and youth from the Atlanta region, plus area research universities and organizations. JUSTICE will examine the relationships between individuals and the systems that impact their lives, the intersection of those systems more broadly, and the agency of individuals to influence those institutions.

Topics for development and partnership include (but are not limited to):

social justice and civil rights

race, gender, LGBTQ+ equality and rights

criminal and procedural justice

environmental and climate justice

algorithmic and data justice

epistemic equity

disability and accessibility justice

immigration justice

child and human rights

food justice

transportation justice

health access and healthcare inequities

labor movements

design and the built environment

economic policy and wage disparities

For researchers: Science Gallery Atlanta welcomes your ideas and proposals on the theme of JUSTICE, inclusive of a wide range of scholarship and research. You are not required to have an artist connected to your submission. If your submission is selected, we can work with you to foster a collaboration.

For artists: Science Gallery Atlanta welcomes your ideas and proposals on the theme of JUSTICE, inclusive of all artistic mediums. You are not required to have a scientist or researcher connected to your submission. If your submission is selected, we can work with you to foster a collaboration.

Atlanta Print Biennial

Artistic field:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The Atlanta Print Biennial is an international juried exhibition, open to all artists working in hand-pulled printmaking processes. Purchase awards and prizes will be given. The exhibit is organized by Atlanta Printmakers Studio and hosted by Kai Lin Art, a contemporary art gallery located in the vibrant Westside District of Midtown Atlanta, GA.

Entry deadline is Monday, January 14, 2019 at 12 Midnight in Mountain Time Zone.

This year’s juror is Eun Lee. Lee was born in Seoul, Korea and has had many roles in academia and service. She was the program coordinator for the printmaking minor at SCAD in Savannah and served as the Conference Coordinator of SGC International, the largest printmaking organization in North America. Also during her tenure with SGCI, she has served as President, Vice President of External Affairs, Chair of the Nominations Committee, Chair of the Awards Committee and Student Representative. She has also served the prior SGEO organization as President and Vice President. Eun received her MFA from the University of Notre Dame and her BFA from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

As a conceptually driven artist, Eun is constantly exploring new marks and images. The work is most often a materialization of her personal diasporic cultural experiences as a continually evolving conscious being. Utilizing a combination of extreme and subtle visual language in order to preserve a controlled disclosure, Eun’s work reveals the unavoidable dichotomies of any and all situations. “I am interested in simultaneously portraying the controlled and uncontrolled, perceived good and bad, acceptable and unacceptable, balanced and unbalanced, and the philosophy that perfection must always be fluid.”
