Open Call for Art: Agency

Country:

Eligibility:

Agency: A virtual art show reflecting the themes of global citizenship

Broto: Art-Climate-Science, a collaboration conference, is looking for 10 art pieces for a non-commercial virtual exhibit to go up in May 1-30, 2021  on this website and be highlighted during our May 15-16  online conference, called “Greetings, Earthlings”

“Agency” can be defined as the capacity, condition, or state of acting or of exerting power. How can artists act as agents to address the real and imagined boundaries of our planet in relation to the climate crisis? What responsibility do we have as visual thinkers to generate momentum for change? How can art elevate a discussion about borders, civic responsibility, kindness, humanitarianism, justice, and stewardship in the Anthropocene? Works from all media will be considered including, but not limited to, photography, video, sculpture, installation, multimedia works, painting, printmaking, and ceramics.

Submission FREE: There are no fees to submit your work

Eligibility: Open to all applicants, including minors with parental consent

Perks: All accepted works will be promoted via social media, will be included in conference documentation, and will be part of a group show

Background Brief: 
Broto: Art-Climate-Science (www.broto.eco), a program of the Cape Cod Center for Sustainability,  is a gathering of artists, scientists, sustainability strategists, green tech entrepreneurs and others involved in the climate crisis. Our collaborators explore meaningful art-sci collaboration as a source of new ideas. It’s a brainy, high-concept conference — during which we examine ways that “art can inform science” among other substantive collaboration objectives.

Preference will be given to submissions with strong ties back to science.

Juror/Curator: 
Margaret LeJeune is an image-maker, curator, and educator from Rochester, New York (USA). Working predominantly with photographic-based mediums, LeJeune explores our precarious relationship to the natural world. Her work has been widely exhibited at institutions around the world including The Griffin Museum of Photography (USA), The Center for Fine Art Photography (USA), ARC Gallery (USA), Circe Gallery Cape Town (South Africa), Science Cabin (South Korea), and Umbrella Arts (USA). LeJeune has been invited to create work at several residency programs which foster collaboration between the arts and sciences including the Global Nomadic Art Project – The Ephemeral River (Dartington, UK), University of Notre Dame Research Center (USA), and University of Wisconsin – Madison Trout Lake Research Station (USA).  She has been awarded a Puffin Fellowship, The Sally A. Williams Artist Grant, and a Bradley University Research Excellence ‘New Directions’ Grant for her interdisciplinary project Growing Light.  Her work was recently published in Culture, Community, and Climate: Conversations and Emergent Praxis from art.earth press. LeJeune currently serves as Associate Professor of Photography at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois.
