Call for Submissions Tapped: Works by Artists and their Current or Former Professors
International Deadline: October 7, 2016 – Out of respect for the artist-teacher bond, and in honor of professors working hard to help artists tap into a higher mind relative to art and life, MANIFEST offers our 7th Annual TAPPED, an exhibit that presents works of art by current or former professor/student pairs. Works made by the student and the professor will be featured individually, and both professor and student must enter separately.
The relationship between artists and their current or former professors can be a powerful one. Even when this bond is left unstated, we carry our professors’ voices forward in time as we mature as artists and people. We eventually realize that the instruction given by our teachers during our relatively brief careers as students continues to expand within us. We realize that the learning they inspired (or insisted upon) is a chain-reaction process that develops across our lifetime. All of us who have been students carry forward our professors’ legacy in one form or another. And those who are, or have been professors, bear witness to the potency of studenthood.
Most working artists have been a student at some point in time. Most have reached where they are because of this.
* It is important to note that this project is open to CURRENT or PAST professor/student pairs. The ‘student’ half of the pair may be a college freshman, a retired veteran, or at any stage in between. Likewise, the professor half of the pair may be currently or no longer teaching. The sole criteria for the pairing is that the relationship between the two was a formal teacher/student one at some point in time.
TAPPED is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works of art or design and each entrant must name one current or former professor or student as an exhibiting companion.
Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media (including video, sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, etc.)
JURY & CURATOR
Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This exhibit will be juried by an anonymous multi-member panel of volunteer professional and academic advisors with a broad range of expertise relative to art and design. The jury will then pass along their recommendations to the exhibit curator who will make the final selections from the jury-approved pool.
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.
