Ezine/Print Boomer Magazine Open Call: Identity

Boomer Gallery Whitechapel, England, United Kingdom

Boomer Gallery

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: December 14, 2021 – How do we build identity in art and most importantly how do we make ourselves accepted? Being an artist was never easy and most of the times especially in the emerging period things are really hard and complicated.

One of the most complicated aspects is being accepted exactly as we are and for the things we stand for, for example our Art and our true self. The whole idea of identity and acceptance might not sound like a big deal but is the fundamental base for everything that humankind stands for, especially in art.

More than sixty seven years have passed since her death but Frida still continues to empower generations of artists to accept themselves and share their identities and their art with the world.

The purpose of this publication is to inspire artists to accept themselves and their art without being forced into the stereotypical theatre that our society plays with.
