What is a story? A statement of events (true or fictional)? History? Herstory? Theirstory? “The subject of a painting, sculpture, or other work of art. [obsolete]?” A lie? How do you tell/show/hear/interpret a story? What is your story?
This is an invitation to all Emerging Chicago based New Media and Contemporary artists, performers, and musicians to submit artwork for the STORY exhibition at Slate Arts and Performance. Artwork may be in any medium, but primary consideration will be given to artists who engage with New Media Arts and Contemporary Music practices.
The opening reception will take place on Saturday, February 4, and the show will run through Sunday, February 19. We will be accepting submissions until Sunday, January 22 at 11:59 PM. There is no application fee.
Artists may submit up to 3 pieces, videos, sounds, links, etc., along with title, size, and medium, as well as an artist’s statement. You may include 1 detail image per submission. Pieces may be a maximum of 6’x6’x6’. Please note that if accepted, artists will be required to provide their own equipment/necessary components.
Additionally, we are taking proposals for workshops, seminars, lectures, screenings, and other events that you may have related to the theme.
