Opportunity Description

International Deadline: March 1, 2018 – The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens is now accepting submissions for “Arabesque: Contemporary Conversations,” an exhibit to run in partnership with the Islamic Artists of Orlando from May 8 to August 19, 2018.

Traditional Islamic works call to mind ancient art and architecture decorated with interlacing natural elements and geometric lines known as arabesque. These stylized designs are often tiled or seamlessly repeated. This exhibit will explore what modern Islamic art looks like, and submitted works should explore what “arabesque” means to artists today. All mediums are welcome.

Artists will be required to submit two images of each piece, a short bio, and an object description with how their works relates to exhibit theme. Out-of-area artists are encouraged to apply, but all shipping costs and arrangements are the sole responsibility of the artist.

Please send your images, bio, and descriptions to rfrisby@polasek.org.

The deadline for entry is March 1, 2018 at 5 p.m. EST. No late entries will be accepted.
