ConTEXT III

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The Foundry Art Centre is seeking submissions for “ConTEXT III,” an all media exhibition focusing on the written word’s role in the visual arts. The power of words cannot be overstated. Contemporary society is saturated with media and this exhibition showcases how intertwined the literary and visual arts are. We must ask ourselves how the words we read, and how we read them, impacts our understanding of the world. We ask artists ‘What happens when the visual arts and literary arts are fused?’

 

Awards: 

Best in Show awarded a “Going Solo” Exhibition 

Two Juror’s Choice Awards -  $150 cash prize each
