"Subaltern" Visual Art Open Call

Share

Theme:

City:

Eligibility:

We welcome all the submissions: art, photography and written works as long as they correspond to the theme of the issue. 

The term “subaltern” is the focus of the next issue of the magazine. In postcolonial theory it referred to the native population that was excluded from the hierarchy of power socially, economically and geographically. It might be also used to describe any social class that is pushed to the margins of society and that is the main premise we are trying to bring up. This issue is open for any artists that are in an underrepresented group due to different factors: race, gender identity, nationality and so on. We welcome submissions that explore the term subaltern and expand on the artist`s own self-identity and their attitude towards the use of the term. Your voice is welcome.

Figuratively Speaking

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Figuratively Speaking is a virtual exhibition celebrating depictions of body within art.

Touch starved and distanced, we are now more aware than ever of our physical presence. Aware of the space we take up, the way it feels to breathe, to move, to hold and be held. Aware of the invisible lines between us that we must now navigate, the lines that move and shift our embodied experience of the world. Every day has become a dance, every interaction a language of body talk.

This exhibition will celebrate the bodies that carry us. Through the eyes of the contributing artists we will appreciate how the figure communicates our humanity. We will share in how it tells our stories of desire, fear, vulnerability and resilience.

The space in which these works will come together is also figurative, appropriately isolated from reality. In this virtual space the physicality of the body will become impossibly realised, it will resonate with us despite the distance of the digital. It will move us, figuratively speaking.

APPARITIONS

Share

Eligibility:

This Halloween, we’re asking artists and performers to reimagine the theme of dis-possession and the invisible for a virtual exhibition, APPARITIONS, accepting all mediums. Coming from a diasporic perspective, dis-possession is: separation and disconnect from ancestors, heritage, land, and bodies.

The intention is this exhibit will be a collective sacred space around Halloween, a time that’s centered on ancestral rituals and being open to the intangible. Submit anything you’d like to share in this space, including time-based media, interactive media, performance art, visual and performing arts, poetry readings, and live performances. Also, while this theme is inherently diasporic and personal, the exhibit isn’t limited by a diasporic lens, so don’t let this deter you from submitting!

WHAT TO SUBMIT: 1) artist bio AND 2) documentation and description of your work or a proposal for a live performance.

KEYWORDS: (im)material, sensory, memory, haunting, (dis)embodied, (in)corporeal, vessels, portals, mediators, ancestral, intergenerational, displacement, nostalgia, past, visions

DEADLINE: October 5th by midnight to apparitions2020@gmail.com
