Eligibility:

Woman Made Gallery is seeking submissions for our April – May, 2022 group exhibition juried by Sundus Abdul Hadi (artist, writer, curator). This exhibition will be held at Woman Made Gallery located at 2150 S. Canalport Ave., Chicago, IL 60608 in the Pilsen neighborhood. 

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

This curatorial concept is taken from Sundus Abdul Hadi’s book “Take Care of Your Self: The Art and Cultures of Care and Liberation” and seeks artwork in any medium that explores the following:

"Deeply-rooted is an empowered word to describe any person or community rooted in an ancient culture steeped in traditional and Indigenous knowledge that colonization attempted to erase. It is a word that attempts to describe the multiplicity of ethnicities and experiences related to the international Indigenous, Black, Pan-African, Afro-descendent, Arab, Brown, Latinx, South American, and Asian communities.

Transcultural communities, in all our diversity, have much in common. However, to truly be in solidarity with one another, we must celebrate our differences rather than skim over them in an attempt to boost our similarities. Just as in a family, or a forest, each individual is completely different from the others, I see our interconnected communities as relatives. We are members of an international family with much to learn and teach one another, nurtured through a sophisticated system of roots. The experiences of struggle, unbelonging, colonialism, and marginalization have affected communities the world over, particularly when displaced and uprooted in so-called Western societies.

Every time I would use or read words like “marginalized”, “people of colour”, “global south”, “BIPOC” or “colonized”, I found them limiting in describing the multitude of experiences of a rich diversity of people they claim to represent. These words are often white-centering and are unimaginative. I coined the term deeply-rooted in place of words that identify us as inferior, marginal, or secondary to whiteness. I use this word to describe the multiplicity of ethnicities who are connected not just through struggle, but through deeply rooted ancient identities, familiar spirits, and shared experiences of resistance to white supremacy and colonialism.

This exhibit seeks to center the experiences of the deeply-rooted, through a decolonial lens. By reflecting on both ancestry and futurity, we will collectively offer new narratives, definitions and representations of what it means to be both ancient and novel in a world on the cusp of change." - Sundus Abdul Hadi

The juror is interested in questions around the following : 

Tell us a story about deep roots.

How does it feel to be deeply-rooted?

As deeply-rooted people, how can we see ourselves into the future?

How can we honor our roots and ancestry in our acknowledgement of our plural identities?

How can we define ourselves outside of the limits of the colonial construct while using the English language?

How can we imagine ourselves differently from the way we have been represented by those outside of our communities?

How can we create new narratives to alleviate the burden of constant correction that is placed on the shoulders of many deeply rooted artists?

What does transcultural solidarity mean for you?

Imagine a world where colonialism never happened.

Show us decolonization in practice.

Uncommon Prints x Common Matrices

Eligibility:

Woman Made Gallery is seeking submissions for our February – March, 2022 group exhibition juried by Cathie Ruggie Saunders (artist, educator, Professor, Adjunct.  at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Visual Communication Design Department and Professor + Chair at Saint Xavier University, Art and Design Department)

This exhibition will be held at Woman Made Gallery located at 2150 S. Canalport Ave., Chicago, IL 60608 in the Pilsen neighborhood. 

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

Woman Made Gallery seeks artworks in any medium that explore the concept and techniques of a transfer in new or unique ways.

The tradition of printmaking embraces using a matrix as a master surface from which to take an impression.  Typical matrices would be wood (as in relief printing), Bavarian limestone or aluminum plates (as in lithography), copper or zinc (as in etching, engraving, or mezzotint), and a silkscreen frame and stencils (as in screen printing or serigraphy).

However, if we open up this practice, we might consider so many more common methods of making “marks.”  After a spring shower, walking through a puddle leaves “prints” of the soles of your shoes (or your bare feet) on the sidewalk.  Holding a hot iron a bit too long on a piece of fabric will result in a freshly “printed” burn on the garment.  Eating a voluptuous summer peach will transfer brilliant pink juice onto the napkin that wipes your mouth.

Finger and handprints using earth pigments and plant berries have been used since the Lascaux cave markings in Paleolithic times.  Babies are often documented with their fingerprints or footprint.  Your skin on those appendages is a matrix you carry with you forever.  Have you ever thought of incorporating its artistic potential into your work?

For this exhibition, the juror seeks artwork in any medium that explores the concept or technique of a transfer in new or unique ways, as in the examples above, or in combination with traditional printmaking methods.

The juror is interested in work that investigates:

  • Using unconventional materials that push the boundaries of what is typically considered a printmaking matrix.
  • An awareness of the natural world and human body as potential for artmaking.
  • Where the intersection of prescriptive and informal printmaking practices merge or collide.
  • If quality work is being produced through methods that honor tradition but also bring a contemporary perspective to the definition of the printmaking discipline

Woman Made Gallery CFA: Word of Mouth (Food + feminism)

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Woman Made Gallery seeks submissions for our January- February 2022 group exhibition juried by Rosalyn D'Mello (international art critic, feminist writer, columnist, and recent evaluator for the Andy Warhol Foundation Art Writers Grant). 

This exhibition will be held at Woman Made Gallery located at 2150 S. Canalport Ave., Chicago, IL 60608 in the Pilsen neighborhood. 

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

For the upcoming Jan/Feb 2022 exhibition Word of Mouth, Woman Made Gallery seeks artwork exploring food through an intersectional feminist lens across mediums. It asks artists to subvert socially conditioned, gendered conceptions of a kitchen, an ingredient, a worm, or even a plate.

"The kinky tactility of that which is edible, materially or intangibly, spiritually or secularly is our pursuit. It forms the fibrous conceptual core of this exhibition. We seek that which evangelizes or is informed by orality, by sensory interventions that are performative and exploratory, inconclusive yet holistic; that which relates to tongue or lingual papillae, that which is linked to the irrepressible, bound by the fluid interstices between resonance, laughter, and/or rage; that which relates to dimensions of hunger and satiation, gluttony and greed, miracles and grief, that which connotes the alterity of word-made-flesh-made-text-made-loaf…

Imagine the sound a knife makes as it sluices the petticoats of onions; the void in the pit of a freshly de-seeded cherry; the earthiness of organic fertilizer; the rapture of an almond tree full-blossomed in spring; the gospel according to a caterpillar, or a bee." - Rosalyn D'Mello

The juror is particularly, though not exclusively, interested in investigating the following conceptual questions for "Word of Mouth":

  • If we are what we eat what nourishes our collective soul? 
  • How does your garden grow? How does the squirmy earthworm embody hope? 
  • How to advance queer table fellowship? 
  • What makes a particular orifice a mouth? 
  • How do we salvage leftover joys? 
  • How do you undo a pomegranate without the application of a knife? Can you cut a pineapple underwater? 
  • How does the gut relate to emotion? How do you ferment old wine?

 

Woman Made Gallery seeks artwork in all mediums. We encourage intersectional feminist approaches that include consideration of sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, and disability, among other social locations.

ABOUT THE JUROR

She writes a weekly feminist column for mid-day, a fortnightly one on contemporary art for STIR, and regularly contributes to OPEN.

Moments Like This - Jessica Bingham

Submissions Due on July 11, 2021 by 11:59 PM CST

 $30.00 USD

Woman Made Gallery is seeking submissions for our August-September 2021 group exhibition juried by Jessica Bingham (artist, curator at University Galleries of Illinois State University; director and co-founder of Project 1612). This exhibition will be held at Woman Made Gallery located at 2150 S. Canalport Ave., Chicago, IL 60608 in the Pilsen neighborhood. 

 

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION
Under capitalism, we are asked to make every hour of every day productive -- through work, through consuming, through buying, through wanting more.  But after a year of isolation, confinement, of racial justice uprising, of trauma from police violence, of illness, what can a new reality look like if we continue to live slowly? If we continue to pause, process what we have collectively gone through, and move at the speed of humanity rather than the speed of production?

This exhibition considers recent practices of a Slow Living lifestyle, and invites work that offers opportunities to slow down, contemplate, process, rest, and come back into ourselves and our communities. 

Woman Made Gallery seeks artwork in all mediums. We are dreaming of painterly, time/place-based, meditative, healing work, matched with work that processes contemporary realities for women and non-binary folks as the world continues to increase its pace of living, among others. We encourage intersectional feminist approaches that include consideration of sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, and disability, among other social locations.

Woman Made Gallery is particularly, though not exclusively, interested in investigating the following conceptual questions for "Moments Like This":

  • Do you practice slow living? What does slow living look like for you?
  • In what way(s) have you deliberately chosen a slower pace or implemented simplicity in your daily routine? How has it changed your outlook on life? 
  • How have you reclaimed your time in the last year? What have you said "no" to recently?
  • In 2-3 sentences, share a story from your life when you missed out on something special because you were too busy to live in and not living in the moment. What did this teach you?
  • How do you process and cope with stress? 
  • What does your typical morning look like?
