Opportunity Description

International Deadline: January 4, 2017 – Manifest Creative Research Gallery presents an international call for works which explore the subtle concept of SPACE, exploring the spaces between objects, the space things occupy, negative space, empty space, distance, positive space, depth, personal space, etc. This is not a call for works about outer space.

People often take space for granted, neglecting to respect its importance in defining our world and understanding of reality. Our interest in how this theme is addressed by visual art is broad, and artists may interpret it widely when selecting works to submit. This call is an open question seeking an answer about how artists address space as a subject, or key aspect in the design and creation of their work.

SPACE is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works which address the theme in some considerable way.

Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts 2d and 3d media applicable to the theme. Manifest’s carefully assembled juries change from project to project, and as a body have no collective predisposition towards any particular kind or style of art.

Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This project will be juried by a 5-9 member panel of professional and academic volunteer advisors with a broad range of expertise.

Manifest Press will produce a high quality hard-cover publication documenting each entire season of exhibits, artists, and works shown. This continues Manifest’s commitment to long-term documentation and dissemination of our projects, and the expansion of physical exhibits into a broader geography and time frame, while also bringing all exhibits together under one cover each year to create a better product which will be more valuable to the public, teachers, libraries, and exhibiting artists.

$36 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry.

Visit Manifest Gallery online to Apply. The online submission process is preferred. However, discs may be submitted (see details on Prospectus).
