Call for US-based artists working on Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Deadline: April 30, 2016.

This is a quite specialized call for participation, but if you live in the US and have worked on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it is for you.

 

FAR FROM THE FRONT LINE
Call for Art
Social change has often been brought about by artists who dare to say what few want to hear. As in many mediums, perspective derives from distance; being far away allows us to look closer, to see. Local artists living within the struggle between Israel and Palestine are often challenged and silenced by one or the other governments or public pressure for their work. Those who try to follow the complexities of the conflict from a distance find that although they have more creative freedom, they are still influenced by mainstream and authoritarian censure of artists’ ideas.
Artists who have created works from outside the space of day-to-day conflict nevertheless remain viscerally connected. Artists far away from the mapped borders may be among the first to finally – tentatively – step over into new territory. Being FAR FROM THE FRONT LINES creates an opportunity for artists’ dialog outside borders. Showing their work to a wider public allows both the audience and the artists themselves to actively promote meaningful change in our minds, where all borders ultimately reside.

Call for Art
Artists that are creating and living in the USA, and are connected to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, are invited to send images in any media* to be considered for inclusion in a group exhibition, in early 2017, at the Lubeznik Center for the Arts ( LCA), Northwest Indiana’s premiere multidisciplinary contemporary art space, conveniently located on the beautiful lakefront of Michigan City, just an hour from Chicago.
Please email 3-5 images 300 DPI, of suggested work to: fan.omanut@gmail.com
Size up to 800 MB, longer side up to 1000 Pixel. Image’s name: “artist_name_01.jpg”
Short artist’s statement up to 250 words and a link to artist’s website. Statement name: “name_bio.jpg”
Last day to submit work April 30, 2016.
All accepted artwork must be sent to the Museum by the artist, who undertakes all costs and responsibilities thereof. All pieces must be sent ready to exhibit.
Local (Chicago area) artists may have their work picked up by the Museum.
* photography, painting, sculpture, mixed media, video, installations. Large installations will considered with some limitations.
