"Polysemy: Dual Meanings In Contemporary Art"

Polysemy is the phenomenon of a singular word or phrase holding multiple meanings. The Gala Exhibition visually grapples with meaning and symbolism as interpreted through artwork. The duality of man and the double entendres evident in nature, among other subjects highlight the way dual meanings can both contradict, intertwine and evolve to introduce new interpretations. Subjects of morality, aesthetics, and human nature will be highlighted with an aim to spark discussion, emotion, and contemplation.

Culturally Arts Collective invites you to submit your artwork to the 2022 Gala Exhibition. This call is open to all individuals or groups from any country, background, and education level.
