CALL FOR ART: Boundaries Exhibition Dates: April 15 – May 16, 2021
SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE: March 14, 2021
ABOUT THE JUROR: Whitney LaMora (she/her) is a queer Chicago-based creative. Her artistic background spans from theatrical production to art curation, entrepreneurial leadership, goal-oriented mentorship, and beyond. She is a champion of interdisciplinary projects and emerging / DIY creators. She lives in Logan Square, obsessively reads, and takes in plants. Whitney is the creator of multiple Chicago art entities like LOCUS and the Accountability Club.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION: It's been a year of boundaries. At the conclusion of one full year of pandemic conditions, the parameters of how we live and move through the world have drastically changed. While many new physical boundaries have been defined for us, other boundaries were left to be defined. This exhibition considers the magnitude of this particular moment, as well as conceptual dimensions and negotiations of boundaries broadly, and as particularly experienced by womxn and non-binary individuals. We encourage intersectional approaches that include consideration of sexuality, race, class, and disability.
The juror is especially, though not exclusively, interested in artworks from the following mediums:
Fiber / textile / fabric / weaving based installations
*The ability to perform in the gallery space may be limited due to CDC and City of Chicago COVID-19 guidelines. In the event that a physical performance may not be possible, a video documentation of the performance will be exhibited.
Woman Made Gallery is looking for mission-focused and energetic women-identifying and non-binary folks who are committed to social justice in the arts and are willing to lend a helping hand. If you have skills in the areas of marketing, fundraising, virtual event planning, art handling, gallery preparation, or are willing to connect WMG with your networks to build exhibitions or member programs, we want you! Consider applying to volunteer using the form linked here. More details at womanmade.org/volunteer
