IncuArts Gallery invites artists to submit work for the upcoming show, Hindsight, 2020 Was A....

For many 2020 was a year like no other. A global pandemic hit, wildfires swept through large portions of countries while hurricanes and storms flooded others, people died, lives were put on hold, jobs were lost, economies were in crisis, schools closed, major elections took place, and more. What did 2020 look like for you? How did it feel? How did you respond? How has this year shaped you, your life, and your practice? At IncuArts we ask, “What happened?” 

HINDSIGHT, 2020 WAS A   is a look back on the year 2020, at what happened and what it meant to us.

ALONE/ TOGETHER - INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

IncuArts Gallery invites artists to submit work for the upcoming show, Alone/ Together.

Alone/ Together is a paradox. 2020 has united and divided the world.  There are schisms within our culture that are widening. At the same time, people are coming together in mass to protest injustices. Wearing a mask can be seen as a simple gesture of kindness towards others; yet may also also entice fighting.  What does it mean to be alone? What does it mean to be together? What does that look like? Have you felt alone? Have we come together? How have you, as an artist reacted to this paradox?

Each artwork will be considered based upon the merit of individual images submitted by each artist.

Selected artists will have their work featured in the online exhibition and via social media platforms.

Women, people of color, LGBTQ+, and other community members are strongly encouraged to apply.

Keywords:

“Contemporary portraiture: Redefining the Figure” is an exhibit centered around the human form. Portraiture has traditionally been utilized as a medium to capture and replicate the likeness or expression of a person, yet this age old art form has evolved tremendously since its origins - from DaVinci’s anatomical drawings to visually striking portraits by contemporary painter Amy Sherald. In this online exhibit, we will be exhibiting a wide range of work including representational and abstract interpretations, as well as work by artists who seek to redefine or challenge the genre of portraiture. 

We encourage artists who work in diverse mediums and styles to apply. The follow mediums are accepted: Painting, drawing, mixed-media, collage, sculpture, digital art, photography.

Our guest curator is Erika b Hess, Artist, Curator & Host of the I Like Your Work podcast! Erika has exhibited her work nationally and juried a wide range of exhibits across the U.S.
