International Deadline: June 23, 2022 – The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit original works made with the aid of, in collaboration with, or about machines and mechanical processes.
What machines do you use every day? What possibilities have they created for you? Do you ever use them to make art? Are you making art better, faster, stronger because of machines?
ARTIFEX EX MACHINA is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works which address the broad theme described above. Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts 2d, 3d, or 4d media.
JURY & CURATOR
Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This exhibit will be juried by an anonymous panel of professional and academic advisors with a broad range of expertise relative to art and design.
The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($5000) to a single work selected as the ‘best of the entire season’… see more.
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.
