Woman Made Gallery CFA: Word of Mouth (Food + feminism)

Eligibility:

Woman Made Gallery seeks submissions for our January- February 2022 group exhibition juried by Rosalyn D'Mello (international art critic, feminist writer, columnist, and recent evaluator for the Andy Warhol Foundation Art Writers Grant). 

This exhibition will be held at Woman Made Gallery located at 2150 S. Canalport Ave., Chicago, IL 60608 in the Pilsen neighborhood. 

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

For the upcoming Jan/Feb 2022 exhibition Word of Mouth, Woman Made Gallery seeks artwork exploring food through an intersectional feminist lens across mediums. It asks artists to subvert socially conditioned, gendered conceptions of a kitchen, an ingredient, a worm, or even a plate.

"The kinky tactility of that which is edible, materially or intangibly, spiritually or secularly is our pursuit. It forms the fibrous conceptual core of this exhibition. We seek that which evangelizes or is informed by orality, by sensory interventions that are performative and exploratory, inconclusive yet holistic; that which relates to tongue or lingual papillae, that which is linked to the irrepressible, bound by the fluid interstices between resonance, laughter, and/or rage; that which relates to dimensions of hunger and satiation, gluttony and greed, miracles and grief, that which connotes the alterity of word-made-flesh-made-text-made-loaf…

Imagine the sound a knife makes as it sluices the petticoats of onions; the void in the pit of a freshly de-seeded cherry; the earthiness of organic fertilizer; the rapture of an almond tree full-blossomed in spring; the gospel according to a caterpillar, or a bee." - Rosalyn D'Mello

The juror is particularly, though not exclusively, interested in investigating the following conceptual questions for "Word of Mouth":

  • If we are what we eat what nourishes our collective soul? 
  • How does your garden grow? How does the squirmy earthworm embody hope? 
  • How to advance queer table fellowship? 
  • What makes a particular orifice a mouth? 
  • How do we salvage leftover joys? 
  • How do you undo a pomegranate without the application of a knife? Can you cut a pineapple underwater? 
  • How does the gut relate to emotion? How do you ferment old wine?

 

Woman Made Gallery seeks artwork in all mediums. We encourage intersectional feminist approaches that include consideration of sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, and disability, among other social locations.

Niezaspokojony Głód//Endless Hunger

Eligibility:

Wirtualne Muzeum Antropocenu announces an international open call for our next exhibition “Niezaspokojony Głód//Endless Hunger” From March 15 – April 3rd, 2021 we invite artists — regardless of background, education and nationality to submit works to our second exhibition.

Consumption

1. the action of using up a resource to satisfy a need

2. the action of eating or drinking something

We consume food, but also goods, images, content, relationships. However, do we consume only ever when we try to satisfy a need? Is consumption still a means to an end or has it transformed into the end goal itself?

Consumption, old as life on Earth itself, at its core is the fuel powering the charging Anthropocene machine: make more, faster, stronger, better.

Consumption is also production.

Production is also waste: in times of cheap goods and products we are incapable of consuming all that we produce.

I the paradox reality of mass consumption of all kinds of products by the late capitalist society, we want to pause for a moment to examine the act of consumption itself.

What creatures are hiding in the back of your fridge/pantry/closet? Purchased to be consumed but long forgotten as new, better, shinier items emerged on the horizon ripe and ready for consumption?

Could consumption be an act of creation? Could it be an opportunity for critical reflection and artistic consideration? We believe it can be.

 

From March 15 – April 3rd, 2021 we invite artists — regardless of background, education and nationality to submit works to WMA’s next exhibition “Niezaspokojony głód//Endless Hunger”.

This time we want to focus on food consumption and we encourage to submit works inspired by food consumption.

The exhibition will be created in partnership with Kupuj Odpowiedzialnie foundation, run by sustainable consumption experts.

 

All visual, performative, literary, and sound works are welcome.

Rethinking The Table is a two week residency program that looks into re conceptualize the communal dining table. Challenging both the physical parameters of the table and the symbolic layers of meaning manifest in communal eating. The residency utilized a series of workshops, excursions, group discussions, interventions & rituals, as well as each participant’s personal creative practices to build collectively tow dinners as exhibition with local guests.

We conceive of the table and the act of eating together as an entry point into a myriad of politically and socially charged conversations. We sought to use this simple act as a lens through which we can examine, research, deconstruct and ultimately rethink our relationship to food, eating and the each other.
