HOARD: An International Call for Works of Art By or About Collection

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

Based in Cincinnati, the non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, is thrilled to invite visual artists to submit works that in some way address the theme of collection. All submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental of any media.


Collecting objects has been a tendency of humanity since our earliest days as a species. It is in part thanks to the remnants of things accumulated, cherished, and then hoarded in caves, dried wells, sunken ships, clay pots, libraries, crypts, and more that we have been able to discern some thread of a history of humanity over time to this day. Even art as a phenomenon of civilization has been shaped by one form of collecting or another—museums, powerful people or institutions amassing value or expressing their taste, cultural movements reinforcing identities, and so on.


Some works of art are themselves representative of this process, one of accumulation, categorization, and hoarding in one form or another. We must ponder the question: How do artists use such cumulative processes to convey meaning, to create valuable experiences for the viewer, and to express content or aesthetic moments beyond the raw material itself? For this exhibit Manifest invites artists to share works that in some way do this, and reveal the power of a dragon's hoard.


$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.
