REDUCTION: An International Call for Works of Art About Scaling Back

Add to Favorites Report Listing

Call to artists from Manifest, the Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery.  Artists are invited to submit works that address or in some way reflect the theme of REDUCTION. Artists are encouraged to take a broad and creative view in interpreting the theme as it applies to their work. Submitted work may reflect reduction as a part of the process of its making (carving or cutting away), or address the theme by the evident honing of the formal or conceptual aspects of the artwork.

By one means or another, all art is 'designed'. As opposed to the common assumption that art is a process of assembling, adding material, growing a thing from raw materials, effective design generally involves the under-appreciated skill of reduction—the cutting away of the extraneous, the unnecessary elements and material, and the elimination of all that is not in the work's best interest, even if this is simply a process of decision-making—in order to reach a single, conclusive whole.

When this is done well it is considered to be an example of Unity, where all the parts add up to a well-functioning unit, something greater than just their sum, without anything unnecessary getting in the way or distracting from the content of the work.

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