Truth as a Contested Concept

Eligibility:

EXHIBITION DATES: Nov 1 – Nov 23, 2019

FINAL ENTRY DEADLINE: August 30, 2019

NOTIFICATIONS: Week of September 23, 2019

Exhibition Description: Truth as a Contested Concept is open to all artists whose work addresses the theme.

We used to think of “truth” as being absolute. That our choices were binary. But today “truth” is a contested concept. [how so?] One of the many questions that come up is whether truth is subject to human interpretation. Does truth change according to circumstances so that what is true for a particular time is not true at a different time?  Does this mean that truth for one person may not necessarily be the same for everyone? If this is the case then can anyone really know “the truth”? The juror is interested in creating a dialog around what we consider truth to be. Do we feel that truth is important? Does the constant wearing away of our belief in truth jeopardize our well being?

Juror: Indira Freitas Johnson

Award winning artist and educator, Indira Freitas Johnson’s passion to make art part of everyday life and to involve local communities in the art process is evident in all her work.  Influenced by an artist father and a mother who was a social activist, Johnson believes strongly that art and activism are a powerful combination for social change. Johnson’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is represented in numerous private and public collections including the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago Transit Authority, Rhode Island School of Design Museum, Providence, RI.

About the program
The Arts + Public Life (APL) exhibitions program at the Arts Incubator Gallery in Washington Park offers a platform for Chicago-based artists to thoughtfully engage with the global, contemporary art world in a localized environment. The unique positioning of this program acts as a catalyst for collaboration and exchange, creating a dynamic and critical space.

As part of the exhibition program, APL collaborates with local emerging or mid-career curators who are interested in exhibitions showcasing the work of local and national artists. Preference will be given to curators who are exploring themes and topics relevant to South Side communities.
Curators are expected to collaborate with the APL curatorial team and are provided with institutional guidance and resources, and support for related public programming and marketing.

 

CALL FOR EXHIBITION PROPOSALS
Chicago-based curators and creative thinkers are invited to propose fresh and original exhibition ideas that feature exceptional artists, designers, and thinkers. We are searching for collaborators interested in challenging contemporary curatorial practice. 

Proposals should seek to push beyond the traditional use of the gallery space through experimentation with ideas, technology, mediums, exhibition design, and audience engagement.  Special consideration will be given to plans that address residents of the Washington Park area, and students and faculty of the University of Chicago.   Applications are open to curators, curatorial collectives, designers, and innovators of all experience levels. 

Selected proposals should demonstrate bold and interesting ideas with a high level of organization and attention to detail. Recipients will work with the Arts + and Public Life curatorial team, and will receive marketing and production support along with a $4,000.00 exhibition budget. Applications will be considered for multiple exhibition opportunities in 2020.
