Competitions Manifest Gallery International Call for Art About Modification
International Deadline: August 30, 2020 – The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works of art that are about or depict the process of tuning, refining, or altering subjects, their contexts, or materials in order to achieve a different purpose or point. This concept is wide open to interpretation and application of the theme ‘modified’. Artists should consider their available work through the lens of this thematic concept and decide for themselves the relevancy of the work to this open call.
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.
MODIFIED 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.
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts media.
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.
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.
$40 for up to four entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable. Number of entries is unlimited.
Artworks are not required to be for sale in order to be included in our exhibitions. It is required that works are indicated as either “for sale” or not for sale (NFS) on the submitted entry form. Manifest Gallery will retain a commission of 30% of the sale price on all artwork sold during the exhibition.
