Competitions WHO: An International Call for Works of Art About Identity

Manifest Creative Research GalleryCincinnati, Ohio, United States

Manifest Creative Research Gallery

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: November 17, 2020 – The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works of art for our upcoming exhibition, “Who”.  We are interested in the term when taken in context with the Five Themes of Who, What, Where, When, and Why. It may be taken as a question, or as an answer to any number of related questions in a multi-part puzzle—expressing inquiry or determination about a particular or generalized person, group, or being.

This exhibit has no defined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental of any media.

ELIGIBILITY
WHO is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works which address the broad theme described above. Submitting specific works shown previously in Manifest’s physical gallery exhibits is discouraged.

MEDIA
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts media.

CASH AWARD
The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($2500) to a single work selected as the ‘best of the entire season’…  see more.

JURY & CURATOR
This exhibit will be juried by an anonymous several member volunteer panel of professional artists 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 design the exhibit from the jury-approved pool.

PUBLICATION
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.

ENTRY FEE
$40 for up to four entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable. Number of entries is unlimited.

Manifest Gallery will retain a commission of 30% of the sale price on all artwork sold during the exhibition.
