CALL FOR WORKS, International Juried Exhibition
BEING HER NOW: Feminine Identity in the 21st Century
Deadline: November 9, 2015
Who/Where: Salisbury University Art Galleries
What does it mean to be a woman in the twenty-first century? How are we representing the realities of contemporary women’s lives and issues? How are we engaging with historic ideas of femininity? The media would have us believe that gender is more fluid than ever, but does this fluidity—at least as it plays out in the mainstream media—actually represent a real challenge to stereotypical gender norms that many feel hemmed in by? Feminists have increasingly grappled with the ways that intersectional identity complicates notions of femininity, inflecting the way in which women continue to fight to make diverse voices heard. We seek art that engages with these questions and seeks to explore diverse ways of being a woman in the twenty-first century.
The selection Jury is composed of 6 woman scholars and artists in the fields of art history, studio art, performance art, women’s studies and film studies.
We are accepting all forms of media for this exhibition: 2d, 3d, video, film, design, new media, etc.
We are also looking for PERFORMANCE PROPOSALS for a live performance event to be held at Salisbury University on March 3, 2016. If your proposal is selected for inclusion in this event, you must be available on this date to perform at the University.
