Art call for artists.

For this exhibition Manifest is looking for works of visual art that somehow, in some manner, represent or are realized as 'hacked'. This can be in the form of symbolic, narrative or suggestive works. Conceptual or abstract interpretations of this theme are welcome along with those of technical or literal representations. During our staff brainstorming sessions for Manifest's season planning we jotted down these notes, along with the definitions and ideas above: no gates; open source; found objects; vampires & pirates; transparency; and democratization, among others. 

Our curatorial staff and jurors, as is the case with most Manifest projects, have no expectation for what sort of works can or should fit this theme. Our offering of this project is as much of a challenge and question for artists to answer. Submissions can be entered from the most traditional to the most conceptual or experimental in any visual art medium (including boundary-testing forms that could also qualify as non-art). The one criteria beyond excellent quality is that works must address the broad theme as defined by 'hacked'

It is important for artists not to assume a purely technological basis for the theme. Works of all kinds, from drawing and painting to photography, printmaking, collage, sculpture, various combinations of media and processes, including more straight forward work that nevertheless deals with the theme as a matter of subject or content are all completely valid possibilities.

HACKED is open to everyone. The one limitation is that entries must represent original works which address the broad theme as defined by 'hacked'.

$40 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable. The number of entries is unlimited. Entry fee must be paid by U.S. check or money order made payable to MANIFEST, or by credit card via PayPal. (If paying by PayPal PLEASE use the paypal link provided on the page that follows the submission of the online entry form.)

Any fee payment must reference your name, or we must be notified if another party is paying your fee.
