Woman Made Gallery: Boundaries juried by Whitney LaMora

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Woman Made Gallery is seeking submissions for our April-May 2021 group exhibition juried by Whitney LaMora. This exhibition will be held at the gallery and online. Submissions will request the submitter to select participation in (a) the hybrid presentation (at the gallery and online) or (b) the virtual exhibition only.

 

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

As the world continues to grapple with an isolated reality at the conclusion of one full year of pandemic conditions, the parameters of how we live and move through the world have drastically changed. While many new physical boundaries have been defined for us, other boundaries were left to be defined. This exhibition considers the magnitude of this particular moment, as well as conceptual dimensions and negotiations of boundaries broadly, and as particularly experienced by womxn and non-binary individuals. We encourage intersectional approaches that include consideration of sexuality, race, class, and disability.

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

  • What are the areas in womxn and non-binary lives in need of boundary definition? How does identity condition the ability to set boundaries?
  • How have physical, virtual, emotional boundaries affected womxn and non-binary folks? How do we protect or find our energy?
  • How do we make sense of work-life balance, within the parameters of our new reality and for those exclusively working from home?
  • What are the digital boundaries set within our physical boundaries at this time?
  • How have conversations and points of connection changed, now with the capabilities to turn off your camera, or mute a person while they speak?
  • How have the newly constructed boundaries disproportionately affected womxn and non-binary folks?

Woman Made Gallery seeks artwork in all mediums. The juror is especially, though not exclusively, interested in artworks from the following mediums:

  • Video work/installation
  • Digital renderings
  • Digital art
  • Photography
  • Textile Work
  • Fiber Work
  • Fiber / textile / fabric / weaving based installations
  • Performance art*

*The ability to perform in the gallery space may be limited due to CDC and City of Chicago COVID-19 guidelines. In the event that a physical performance may not be possible, a video documentation of the performance will be exhibited.

 

ABOUT THE JUROR

Whitney LaMora (she/her) is a queer Chicago-based creative. Her artistic background spans from theatrical production to art curation, entrepreneurial leadership, goal-oriented mentorship, and beyond. She is a champion of interdisciplinary projects and emerging / DIY creators.

She lives in Logan Square, obsessively reads, and takes in plants. Whitney is the creator of multiple Chicago art entities like Locus and the Accountability Club.

Reciprocity

Share

City:

Juried by Collaborators Barbara Ciurej + Lindsay Lochman

Exhibition: March 4 - April 3, 2021

Final Entry Due Date: February 7, 2021 at 5 PM

Reciprocity is a relation of mutual dependence, action or influence. In photography, reciprocity refers to the relationship between the aperture (f-stop) and shutter speed, which work dependently and inversely to capture light. It is the key to the perfect exposure.

In reciprocal relationships, like in any collaborative act, ideas and conversations are exchanged, enriching participants intellectually and emotionally. Whether through aesthetic bond, mentor/mentee relationships, friendship, photographer/subject or teacher to student, our pursuits are sustained by these relationships.

To celebrate the reciprocal bonds that enrich our photographic practices, Woman Made Gallery invites women-identified and non-binary artists from the local, national, and international community to pair their photograph with that of another practicing artist with whom they are in conversation.  Two- and three-dimensional forms, plus video will be considered.
