Call for A juried exhibition at Asian Arts Initiative in Philadelphia

Philadelphia PA

Deadline: Monday, July 10, 2017

Migration can seem like a single, bold act – the crossing over a border, the trip across an ocean, the transport from point A to point B. But the process is actually a series of steps that include correspondences, forms and often a whole lot of waiting – these individual tasks can be their own bureaucracies, each shrouded in mystery and inconsistency, despite the millions of people throughout the world who navigate them. Recently, immigration in the United States has become even more convoluted, with ad-hoc travel bans, stop-and-go deportation policies and hearsay visa requirements all adding confusion to an already-complex experience. Hurry Up and Wait is an exhibition featuring art that explores these moments within a moment. Hidden between the drama and debate of immigration are nuances, glitches, errors and fineprint that can be frustrating, mundane, anti-climactic – and sometimes even surprisingly simple. Here we encounter the tensions where policy and humanity meet – the range of emotions, wonder, assumptions and discoveries that make migration much more than simply a political issue.

Call for 18th Annual Will’s Creek Exhibition

Cumberland MD

Deadline: July 25th 2017

We are all alone in our perceptions of the world. At the same time, we are profoundly connected, both with other humans, and all sentient beings. In Western thought, sentient beings are understood as all living beings that have the capacity for pleasure and pain. This is closely related to the Buddhist view of sentience as a quality shared by all creatures who are subject to illusion, suffering, and death. Both of these perspectives center on the notion of compassion – or one’s ability to feel and care for others. This exhibition is intended to bring together diverse artistic reflections on this complex and ever more important discourse. We invite artists to consider how as “human” sentient beings, we express this awareness of “ourselves” in relation to “others” in a work of art – be it other humans, other living creatures, or even nature itself, the very complex of forces that makes sentience possible. We welcome traditional media, as well as installation, video, kinetic, sound, and performance art.
