DEADLINE: November 9, 2015

APPLY NOW

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.

This is an international juried exhibition. 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. Please note, we have a separate form for live performance proposals.

***ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PROOF OF CONCEPT STATEMENT DEMONSTRATING THE WORK’S RELEVANCE TO THE EXHIBITION THEME.

PLEASE NOTE: ARTISTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL SHIPPING FEES.
