Call for Submissions WMG Call for Artists: Process & Material
International Deadline: January 29, 2020 – Open to all artists, Woman Made Gallery is inviting artwork that is either made with unique materials, and/or unconventional methods of application. This exhibition will highlight both the artists’ innovative applications in fabrication, and pioneering approaches to the materials to cultivate the communication between each artist’s creative practice and their experimentation with the materials’ limit.
Oftentimes, artists pursue their unparalleled originality and one of a kind making process through their own inventive and unique adaptations of traditional techniques. The processes reflect the artists’ insights and experiences in creation, and it becomes a work of art itself. Other times, everyday objects and raw elements can challenge many makers to push the boundaries of the common perception and expectation of the material. It is also through the artists’ eyes that we see the hidden potential of the material.
Exhibition dates: April 17-May 9, 2020
