Katonah Museum of Art International Juried Biennial

Add to Favorites Report Listing

The Katonah Museum of Art is currently inviting submissions for Cladogram: KMA International Juried Biennial, from June 28th to October 4th, 2020. The exhibition will be juried by Yasmeen Siddiqui. The KMA presents exhibits that explore ideas about art, society and culture, both past and present through innovative exhibition and education programs.
 
Cladogram: KMA International Juried Biennial presents an opportunity for artworks from artists who are based locally, regionally, and globally to be brought together to explore their relationships with history and with each other. During the process of organizing this exhibit, the KMA hopes to build networks of artists around the world.
 
For the 2020 juried exhibition, the KMA invites visual artists, book artists, sound artists, craft-based artists, poets and authors interested in the idea and form of the archive. The goal of the exhibition is to present a broad range of contemporary work that addresses the ways historical objects and ideas are organized and categorized.
 
This call for submission asks:
• What can be achieved or expressed when historical materials (documents and objects) ground contemporary art practice?
• How can historical objects be used to upend preconceived ideas about the history of art, regardless from which part of the world it originates?
 
Yasmeen Siddiqui is the exhibit juror. Yaseem is an author and founding director of Minerva Projects, whose objective is to support interdisciplinary artists who have expressed the desire to analyze their practice, and where curatorial ideas are tested in service to publishing books. In tandem with this work, Siddiqui writes and edits, having her work published in Hyperallergic, ART PAPERS, Cairo Times, Medina Magazine, Flash Art, Modern Painters, NKA and The Brooklyn Rail.  Her current projects include a book length manuscript on the subject of home and a series of essays considering authoritarianism through the works of artists and authors. She is co-editing the anthology The Storytellers of Art Histories (Intellect Books, 2021). Siddiqui is also a core faculty member at the School of Visual Art at Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, New York and the Master of Arts in Critical Craft Studies at Warren Wilson College in Asheville, North Carolina.
