CALLING ALL ARTISTS! MSSU UPCOMING “FAKE NEWS” SHOW (SEE BELOW). DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 8TH, 2019. EMAIL ENTRIES TO BENTLEY-C@MSSU.EDU. PLEASE SHARE!
Fake News- A National Juried Exhibition 2019 – at MSSU Spiva Gallery
Deadline: February 8, 2019
Divisive, diverse, inflammatory- politics can’t be avoided and they are often difficult to navigate. Propaganda, laden with political slogans, on all sides, adds more ambiguity to the mix. Our political opinions, and those intrinsic beliefs, shape us, and our responses to the political chatter. This show seeks pieces that respond to the theme “Fake News”. We are open to all interpretations of this theme. This is regardless of political party or belief system. The artwork can be literal, figurative, interpretive, etc. This is an open call- to all mediums. We value all beliefs and the manner in which these can be expressed artistically. The main criteria is that the artwork responds to the theme “Fake News”.
Any artist 18 years of age or older is encouraged to enter. All media will be considered, including video. No ceiling hung installations will be accepted.
