Inspired by an Object

Eligibility:

In 1964, Jasper Johns wrote himself a note: “Take an object. Do something to it. Do something else to it.” Since then, this set of instructions has referred to artwork that uses everyday objects and other non-fine art materials and describes the revolutionary approaches to art-making that developed from the early 20th century to the late 1950’s,1960’s, and beyond. For this exhibit, artists are invited to submit work in any medium and in any genre including abstract. However, an object must be used as the primary subject and inspiration of the work. 

This exhibition is the fourth in SMI’s Community Partnership Exhibition Program created by cofounder and past president Virginia S. Block. The partnership aims to reach out to other nonprofit organizations each year to create a collaborative exhibition designed to inspire our members, create new connections, and reach new audiences. This year SMI’s Community Partner is the Montclair Art Museum (MAM). As a collaboration, SMI and MAM will be mounting concurrent object-inspired exhibitions. Studio Montclair’s exhibit will be displayed in our gallery and in the Museum’s Vance Wall Art Education Center arcades. Our selection team will determine the location of all artworks.

An Open Call for an Old School, LGBTQIA-friendly, Radical Feminist Art Exhibition

This exhibition will be a hybrid of both virtual and onsite components. An open call to all who identify as radical feminists for two-dimensional and three-dimensional art works, and short video art pieces serving as visual narratives based on the mantra that the personal is political. What embodies radicalism on an artistic level, is it the artist’s engagement with protest, activism, cultural organizing? Is it the materials used or the content the artist takes up? Show us the manifestations of the work that fueled your survival through the past 4 years and preserved your hope for a brighter future!

With a strong focus on inclusion, we seek and encourage ALL artists who may identify as gender-fluid, eco-femme, queer/trans and old school butch/femme artists.

Privilege, Power and Everyday Life

Microaggressions are defined as subtle, intentional — and oftentimes unintentional — everydayinteractions or behaviors that communicate hostile, derogatory or negative racial messages orassumptions toward historically marginalized groups.

“You are so articulate.” Presumes that black people are not usually capable of competent conversation.

 “Who are you? Do you live here?” Asking someone to identify themself in their own garagehome or car and prove they ‘belong’ sends a message they are not welcome.

,“Can I touch your hair?” Or worse touching without even asking. Curiosity is ok but invadingsomeone’s personal space is not. This can make someone feel like they are an animal on display.

The difference between microaggressions and overt discrimination, is that people who commitmicroaggressions are often unaware they are doing these things – and if you point it out tthem, they say, “That wasn’t my intention, you are being too sensitive.” Which is yet another microaggression.

 The weight of these daily interactions underpins very real consequences in marginalizedgroups... stress, anger, frustration, self-doubt and ultimately feelings of powerlessness and invisibility.

We are looking for artwork that encourages dialog about implicit bias and stereotypes. Our hope is to make the invisible, visible as a path towards a more inclusive culture.
