“UN/FAMILIAR”

Submission Deadline: 9th January 2024

Description:

“UN/FAMILIAR”

You are invited as a creator to submit works relevant to the theme “UN/FAMILIAR”. The title is inspired by a play of words for the familiar and unfamiliar. 

Through this call, we are looking for artists who explore the concept of the Uncanny in art. The Uncanny may be described as an intense experience of strangeness and uncertainty, an unusual commingling of the familiar and unfamiliar.  While the familiar can be intimate and cherished, the unfamiliar may shade into apparently opposite significations such as strange, concealed and secret.

This call is for artists working in all mediums of original 2D and 3D artwork, from paintings, drawings, sculptures, and photography, including digital and video.

Please make sure that you have read through the submission's guidelines and rules properly before submitting your work.

Large wall work must not exceed 80cm x 100cm (to include any mount/frame).

3D work should have a maximum footprint of 70cm x 70cm x 70cm.

Images:

  • You can submit up to 10 images max 4MB each.
