Televised Revolution: Working Towards Criminal Justice Reform Through Art




America is heralded as both the capital of consumerism and commercialization, with the highest GDP in the world, and the capital of mass incarceration, with the highest prison population in the world. Criminal justice reform is long overdue, and though underpaid prison labor plays a role in American production, those convicted of a crime are still treated as unvalued members of society. A simple campaign that focuses on viewing convicts as fellow citizens and humans and paying them fair wages for their production is necessary in order to achieve criminal justice reform. 

"Televised Revolution" aims to feature artwork by artists who are currently incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, or have otherwise been affected by the U.S. criminal justice system, with a particular focus on artists of color. The exhibition will draw the relationship between American consumerism and criminal justice reform by showcasing prison artwork and other creative commodities for the profit of the artist. Rather than focus on the grim realities of prison life and the criminal justice system, we hope the exhibition will help viewers connect with the humanity and depth of those incarcerated and provide a vision of reformation about the criminal justice system.

BARCELONA CONTEMPORARY 2021 analyzes the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time, through two main sections: MIXING IDENTITIES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES.

MIXING IDENTITIES analyzes the hidden parts of our identities, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the complex labyrinths of our consciousness. The human body is a changing system that connects us with other bodies and spaces to perceive the surrounding reality; a strong communication system with its own language and infinite ways of expression.

FUTURE LANDSCAPES are abstract, infinite and conceptual, associated with a sense of freedom and infinite extension. Primarily experienced with the mind, spaces redefining their limits and borders, transforming surfaces in open flow of pure ideas. This section focuses on the concept of the borders and the structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, the space and the ground.

Extended deadline for applications is August 08, 2021 (11.59 PM of your local time)

IncuArts invites artists to submit work for Past/ Present/ Future- an exhibition exploring how time, experience, and history impact us.


Who writes history? Are we simply repeating ourselves? How does the past impact the present and future? Whose narrative is being told? What future are you fighting for? What is your story? Has your story been ignored by the collective mainstream?

Artists exploring ideas related to personal narrative, history, cultural issues, environmental issues, inclusion v exclusion, and social activism are encouraged to apply.

Women, BIPOC, LGBTQA+, and other community members who embody these experiences, and whose stories have been excluded from our cultural narrative are strongly encouraged to apply.

Artists of all media are encouraged to apply.

Inner World- Call For Artist- Boomer Gallery

Artistic field:




In times where our lives seem on the edge most of us take refuge in something where they can express their inner self, and nobody does that with more passion and struggle than artists. The aim of this exhibition is simple - to express our "Inner World" to the world, to show our commitment during the greatest single challenge of our generation and to prove that we are not "less" than the generations of great artists before us. 

Everyone of us has been at a point in life where we had to endure, endure the lack of support, the lack of understanding from people around us particularly the ones close to us, criticism and the notorious line - "why don’t you get a real job?"

Yet in these times where we face deadly pandemics and challenges all around, the creators are badly affected and nobody wants to support arts because artists are not "critical workers"... Is that so?!

No it’s not! In 80 years when people will walk in a museum and see a work done in 2020, they won’t remember anything about any pandemic or struggles and rightly so, the good things always survive and transcend time.

If we visit the National Gallery in Washington and see Picasso’s Still Life from 1918 will we think about the 1918 Spanish flu? Most of us won’t, we will think how passionately they worked in those times, how great it was, how famous they’ve become.

The aim of this exhibition is simple - to express our "Inner World" to the world, to show our commitment during the greatest single challenge of our generation and to prove that we are not "less" than the generations of great artists before us.
