CALL for ENTRIES: Tiny Acts

2017 December 4

Learn more about Tiny Acts Topples Empires show from Woskob Family Gallery!

Eating local is a tiny act that can have a huge impact.  It isn’t a possibility for everyone, but I advocate eating local-ish.  Chose the food that came from the place closest to you.  Sometimes that is all you can do.  Your taste buds will thank you, and it does reduce the emissions of the transport to your table.  Right now, I can still get cherry tomatoes from not too far away, and I am eating them on everything.  This next Call wants to you to explore tiny acts of rebellion.  This is a great curatorial theme.

Check out this Call for Entries from the Woskob Family Gallery (State College, PA) at Penn State for Tiny Acts Topple Empires.  This is another great academic opportunity, and entry is only $20!  Take a look…

ELIGIBILITY:  Open to any practicing artist creating work in the United States, with the exception of those currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree-granting program, is eligible to submit. 

MEDIA:  All media considered.  The gallery is best-suited to displaying 2-D work, but can consider smaller and/or wall-mounted sculptural work & video. No size restrictions, but please note that wall height from ceiling to baseboard is 100”.

THEME:  Rebellion. Bhandari invites artists to consider the manifold expressions of rebellion, and how they might be manifested in contemporary art. The exhibition takes its title from a quote in a 2004 essay by Danusha Goska, in which she writes, “when we study the biographies of our heroes, we learn that they spent years in preparation, doing tiny, decent things before one historical moment propelled them to center stage and used them to tilt empires.” The curator will consider work that engages with all types of rebellion: formal, material, political, and otherwise. Artworks engaging with notions of rupture, disruption, and change are sought. 

DEADLINE:  December 15, 2017

ENTRY FEE: $20 for up to 3

Bhandari is currently developing independent curatorial projects, teaches at Brown University, and serves on the board of directors of visual art at Omi International Art Center.
