Call for Submissions Post Fact

Dupont UndergroundWashington, District of Columbia, United States

NOTE: This opp listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!

Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: March 31, 2017 – Dupont Underground is now accepting open calls for a themed Art Exhibition titled “Post Fact”, on display June 2-August, 2017 in the formerly abandoned trolley tunnels, now an arts exhibition and cultural center, beneath Dupont Circle, Washington, D.C.

We are looking for visual artists, both local and national, whose work involves the use of data on relevant topics of today (i.e. climate change, population growth, politics, gender). These data-derived concepts will then be “fact-checked” by an independent professional fact-checker & accepted into the exhibition based on their honesty. The ultimate exhibition will be a “thoroughly fact-checked show for a post-fact world.”

The tongue-in-cheek message of this show is that if we can put together a fact-checked art exhibition, a decidedly challenging concept for a such a subjective field, then it is entirely possible for us to expect true & fact-checked statements from our governing entities.

APPLY ONLINE – No entry fee


About:
Dupont Underground is a newly founded arts exhibition and cultural center located in the formerly abandoned trolley tunnels beneath Dupont Circle, Washington, D.C.
