Selfhood Juried Exhibition


This juried exhibition will feature artworks centered upon the concept of selfhood. It will consider how selfhood is constructed, altered, and reimagined. Contemporary artists investigate the multiplicitous nature of selfhood: gender, sexual orientation, race, class, age, ethnicity, and so forth. Artworks may consider selfhood outside the traditional Western views of self. Selfhood, as a dichotomy, can reflect cultural norms and be a source of resistance to them.  Navigating selfhood during disruptive times can lead to crossroads of crisis; thereby, artists may present visualizations of selfhood that explore the process of self-discovery, self-definition, and self-direction. 

Call for Emerging Artists

- Submission deadline: July 30, 2023
- Notification of accepted applicants: August 21, 2023

Submission fee is $35 for 10-15 images. All submissions will be handled through CaFÉ.

2024 Sovereignty Residency

Sovereignty, the theme for the 2024 SFAI International Thematic Residency, calls for an artistic and creative engagement at the multiple intersections of sovereignty as it pertains to the individual, jurisdictions, systems, and society as a whole.

Ephemerality, Juried Exhibition


This juried exhibition will feature artworks that speak to the ephemeral—the fleeting moments in life that are attempted to be captured in art. What moments do we try to capture and want to hold onto? What moments do we address that speak to issues we want to change? As artists, we attempt to create something that speaks to specific moments in time. The world is constantly changing and evolving, but how do we capture that moment or feeling? Is there something that has impacted us, or something we hope to leave an impact on? It is through artwork that we can leave a mark or a trace of ourselves.
