CURRENT CALL FOR ENTRY

Interchanging Lines, Constructing Home

Submission Deadline: Extended to April 15, 2020

 

Synopsis: Art Room seeks emerging artists for its upcoming exhibition, Interchanging Lines, Constructing Home. The current social climate has forced many people to live in divided homes where their sexual orientation and gender identities are at conflict within their family structures, thus creating challenges, uncertainty, and discomfort. This call for entry invites artists working in any media to submit works that challenge the idea of the nuclear home, explore their separation from family created by political discourse, and present their new (re)construction or vision of home. The exhibition will be juried by the UNT Graduate Professional Practice class, who will curate the works to be shown at Art Room.

EXHIBITION PROPOSALS

Founded on the principles of curating culturally relevant and thought-provoking art in a contemporary space, we seek out proposals from local, regional, and national emerging and mid-career artists and curators in a variety of media. Art Room exhibits solo, group, juried, and student shows in our 875-foot gallery space. Exhibiting artists are asked to contribute to our Educate Programs by giving a gallery talk/lecture or workshop. Please indicate your proposed educational element in your letter of intent.

EXHIBITION PROPOSALS

 

Art Room presents six exhibitions annually through creative curatorial practices. We support local, regional, and national emerging and mid-career artists and curators.
