Compete Who We Are: Portraying Identity

Cabrillo Gallery Aptos, California, United States

Cabrillo Gallery

Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: February 6, 2022 – Identity is gloriously multifaceted and built upon a complex spectrum of factors. The portrayal of who we are can focus on a single, significant aspect of our identity or can reflect an entire network of associations shaped by broader spheres of influence: connections to familial, social, ethnic, cultural or other groups; personal or family history; geographical, economic or social circumstances; political or spiritual belief systems; jobs, lifestyles or personal interests; and so much more.

When you look inward and ask, “Who am I?” or look outward to your community and ask, “Who are we?” what do you see?

Cabrillo Gallery welcomes all interpretations of the theme of identity. We invite you to share your representation of who you are within the vast continuum of what it is to be human.

Exhibition March 7–April 8, 2022.

Open to all US artists working in any visual art medium, including video (10 minutes or shorter). Entries must be original work not previously shown at the Cabrillo Gallery.
