ANALOG | DIGITAL

Blinking rectangles of various sizes dominate our digital daily lives. Cameras and sensors capture our every move. Networks, algorithms and protocols, document, predict and alter our behavior. Theoretically, human beings are more connected than ever before.

But are we?

While some view the analog to digital transition as a great equalizer and a unifying force, others see it as quite the opposite—a secularizing, divisive means to a lonely, uber-fractionalized society.

Regardless of where you stand on the matter, it is inarguable that the shift from analog to digital has influenced almost every facet of our lives—from how we consume information and exchange goods to how we meet, date, shop, and travel. In virtually every industry and in every home, the analog to digital transition has had a profound impact.

What we want to know is: How has the analog to digital transition impacted you—the artist? How does it make you feel? Cynical or hopeful? Free or confined? Connected or marginalized? How has it affected your work? Has it freed you or constrained you?  

In the medium of your choice—painting, mixed media, video, sculpture or photography —Beacon Gallery would like you to explore how the Analog to Digital transformation has impacted your work, your identity, your family, your community, your (metaphorically) “pixelated” view of the world at large.

You are invited to include a poem, a paragraph or an essay to be published along with your artwork explaining your experience, if you wish, as well.

Submissions are open from October 5 to November 30 2018 via Call For Entry

 

Show will be up from January 11 - February 24th 

 

Guidelines: (see Terms and Conditions on Call for Entry for an exhaustive list)

Competition is open to all artists 18 years and older.

Each artist may submit digital samples of recent original 2D or 3D artworks (artwork must be framed and/or ready to hang (wired or d-rings) or otherwise display) in any medium.

The image submitted must accurately represent the art being submitted. 

Video artwork may be submitted.

 Artists are responsible for any display needs such as pedestals, etc. unless otherwise arranged with the gallery (NB international artists – please contact gallery regarding shipping display needs for 3D works)

If work is accepted, artists are responsible for shipping costs to and from the gallery. 

NB: The gallery is not responsible for any works damaged in transit to/from the gallery or from any damage resulting from poor framing.  

A non-refundable fee of $35 entitles the artist to submit up to 5 pieces of artwork for consideration. Only one image per artwork, please.

The gallery may decide to accept any number from zero to all 5 pieces for the show.

You may submit work as NFS but need to submit a price for insurance purposes.

For all sales, Artist-Gallery split is 50%-50%

Submission of your entry is considered acceptance of the terms and conditions of the competition.
