BEING IN AMERICA: International Call for Art About Being In America

Add to Favorites Report Listing

The arts organization and gallery, Manifest, based in Cincinnati, is excited to invite visual artists to submit works of art that address the theme, Being in America, in one way or another. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental of any media. All forms of media are accepted.


Today the world (of humanity) has largely been unified by a varnish applied by the hand of an invisible virus. Personal experiences are more polarized than ever, both internationally and within the boundaries of many countries, including the United States of America. With this in mind, given the widspread pressure now placed on what we do on a daily basis—decisions, calculated risks, eating, socializing, living life, choosing our representatives and leaders—what does it mean to be in a country that is, as John Adams reminds us, "a government of laws, not of men"? What sort of lens has been placed before our eyes, through which we now observe our circumstances, and this place called America, in a new light? How are artists documenting this today, in advance of the future editors of Art History? The theme is open to different forms of interpretation, and works need not be over-stated, nor political in nature. They may simply be works that comment or reflect on being in America today. Subtlety is most appreciated and welcome.

Keeping this in mind we ask how artists record, through creative and thoughtful means, their thoughts, feelings, and observations on what it means to be in America today, whether that is from the point of view of one living here now, of those who aspire to be here one day, or from those who observe at a distance
