Artist Call Detail

Open Call for Works about Race & Identity
For California artists

The exhibition, A Conversation on Race and Identity, will present works that examine the personal and social impact of race/ethnicity on identity perception. Artists’ work may explore identity from a personal, introspective point of view or by focusing on socially constructed ideas of race and identity, from colorism to ethnic stereotyping. The Gallery seeks to present works that are racially and socially diverse in representation and broad in perspective.  Entry is open to artists residing in the United States, and working in any medium, including primarily 2D and 3D works, as well as limited installation, interactive works, and video screenings. This is intended to be a group exhibition of 10 to 12 artists. Artists selected for exhibition will receive a stipend of up-to $400, depending on the location and amount of work to be delivered or shipped. Stipends will be negotiated at the time of selection. Artists may submit a CD of digital images of works proposed for exhibition via mail, or artists may use a file sharing website, either Google Drive or Dropbox, to submit work images and documents. DO NOT send images or docs via email. Please see prospectus for further instructions.
