Familiar Strangers

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

If you came across the person you think yourself to be in a dream, would you recognize yourself? Or would you be just be another familiar stranger?

On that note, who do you really think you are?

How much can we really understand about ourselves when everywhere we go we are followed by a blank blanket of mystery? How much can we really know about each other in an age where everyone can be anyone?

Why are we so eager to believe in the authenticity of a self-portrait? How often do we really speak the truth about ourselves, and how can we ever represent what we don’t really know? Why do we hardly assume that like anyone else, artists can be blind to themselves too?

The Vacant Museum’s upcoming online exhibition, Familiar Strangers will deconstruct everything we think we know about representing ourselves. We will ask both artists and viewers to question the concept of the self-portrait and to challenge their own understandings of themselves. We will see all reflections and representations of our identities for what they really are: familiar strangers.

By the time we are done collecting submissions, we will assemble a collection of faces from around the world and ask ourselves, “are any of these people really who they say they are?”

In order to be featured in the exhibition, all artists must answer the question, “who do you think you are?” upon submission of their self-portrait. This is both an opportunity to search for truth within yourself, or take advantage of an opportunity to construct an identity completely remote. No one will know the difference. No one will ever know the real you, not even yourself.

The Vacant Museum is calling for self-portraits from artists around the world. We invite artists of all media, with the exception of video, to submit and share their self-portraits and contribute to this international showcase!

Juror: 

Natalie Baldeon is a Visual Artist and Educator living in Saint Louis, MO. She received her Bachelors of Fine Arts from The University of Central Florida in 2008, and her Masters of Fine Arts from Washington University in 2012. She has exhibited her work locally and regionally at venues such as the St Louis Artist Guild, Arcade Contemporary Projects, and the Millitzer Gallery. Her work has also been shown nationally at North Seattle Community College, Seattle, WA; Kinsley Institute’s Grunewald Gallery of Art, Bloomington, IN; Zhou B Gallery, Chicago, IL; San Francisco Public Library, San Francisco, CA; and 1310 Gallery, Ft. Lauderdale, FL. In 2017 she was the Visiting Instructor for 'Drafts in Gesture' at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation, and the Visiting Artist for the LEAP Program at the Contemporary Arts Museum. She currently works as an Adjunct Professor at Webster University.

 

Baldeon’s work investigates psychological states and responses to transitions throughout life. She works in a variety of paint media including watercolor, oil and acrylic. Through her paintings, she seeks to shed light upon subject matters and experiences that are often hidden or obscured. She uses her personal experiences as the entry point to address a broader conversation. The intention of the work is exposure; turning outward what may be concealed within one’s body or subconscious, as well as within the restrictions, taboos and expectations of societal roles. Her most recent body of work focuses on motherhood, and the complexities that accompany it.
