Beyond the Veil Open Call for Art

Artistic field:



Reflecting on all that is veiled, concealed, hidden and peripheral, 'Beyond the Veil' explores the enigmatic moments frequently associated with the image of a veil. A social, identical and cultural marker, the veil is neither limited to its history nor to its pragmatic or symbolic use. It is not necessarily physical but could be represented non-materialistically as well. The etymology of Veil is "to cover, conceal, mask, disguise (something immaterial)". There are many iterations of veils in society and cultures, in nature such as a fog or mist, and veils between worlds or realms of consciousness. A social, an identity, a cultural marker, a veil is neither limited to its history nor to its pragmatic or symbolic use.

This exhibition aims to show different interpretations of the veil and explore what lies beyond it. Artists are encouraged to reflect on the power in which this transformative tool has shifted the consciousness of society.
