Paul Robeson, Galleries: Call for Exhibition Proposals

Deadline: March 26, 2012 (POSTMARK)

Call for Exhibition Proposals
Paul Robeson, Galleries
Rutgers – The State University of New Jersey

Newark, New Jersey
January – March, 2013

There is no place like home

The home is not only the place where the heart is, but also a site for politics and the imagination. Everyday we hear incessant news about foreclosures, vacancies, homelessness, tumbling property values, and the subsequent disruptions in people’s lives, and communities. At the same time the media generates programs celebrating real estate shenanigans, and the most extreme of home renovations. This exhibition will include the work of contemporary artists who use the idea of ‘home’ as a source of inspiration. It may be that they look at the physical and psychological notions of home (or neighborhoods) or specific rooms within the home. Or ideas about US utopian suburbia or homes in other countries, dolls houses or haunted houses, and the where/what of the many places that various people call home.

Exhibition will be on display January – March, 2013

A proposal should consist of:

1. A resume with your name and contact details
2. An artist statement
3. An image list and
4. A CD with images in JPEG format, or photographs of your work.

Proposals must be postmarked no later than March 26, 2012.
