TEXTUALITY

Add to Favorites Report Listing

Art call opportunity for artists.

Once humanity began drawing, drawings evolved into writing. Pictures turned into symbols, abstraction bloomed, and language became visual. Two branches sharing one root carried forward people's feelings, ideas, and plans. Visual and verbal arts shared the role of encapsulating civilization's data. To this day they continue to do so in so many wondrous and varied ways. TEXTUALITY is an exhibit that inquires into the overlap of these two branches, seeking artworks where the verbal is made visual, and where language returns into image.

Manifest Gallery prepares for the grand finalé of its 14th season with a project that will feature and explore works that incorporate text or letter forms. These art forms may be in ways that are straightforward, abstract, fragmented, or in other ways surprising or significantly processed away from recognition.

We are eager to experience how artists are making work across media or genre (painting, collage, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media, video, and non-traditional art, etc.) using text or letter forms as a significant element. The gallery last explored this theme in 2012, during our 8th season.

This call to artists is open to everyone. The one limitation is that entries must represent original works that address the broad theme as defined by 'text or letterforms'. Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts media. Including potentially boundary-testing forms that may exist as both artistic and yet non-art.


The Manifest Grand Jury Prize end-of-year award process will include at least one work from this exhibition moving on to the final jury for the $2,500 cash prize.
