U.S. Multi-State Deadline: June 15, 2017 – Bromfield Gallery, one of Boston’s premier artist-run galleries, announces a call for artists for its upcoming exhibition, the ‘Body Politic’. On display August 2 thru 20, 2017.
Although the definition of “body politic” is an organized group of citizens, artists may use this term as inspiration: any artwork that addresses the body, politics or the intersection of the two. In these tumultuous times, artists are encouraged to address contemporary culture and controversial issues regarding private space and the control of one’s body. Submit artwork that provokes, challenges, illuminates!

Juried by a committee of Bromfield Gallery artists.
