27th Annual Juried Visual Arts Exhibition

Deadline: June 25, 2012 (ONLINE) or (RECEIVE)

27th Annual Juried Visual Arts Exhibition
Scarborough Arts

Papermill Gallery
Toronto, ON
August 1 – August 12, 2012

Theme: Ego. Ego is a heavily laden term. We challenge you to react to this term, using it as a catalyst for the creation of your artwork.

1. the “I” or self of any person; a person as thinking, feeling, and willing, and distinguishing itself from the selves of others and from objects of its thought.
2. Psychoanalysis . the part of the psychic apparatus that experiences and reacts to the outside world and thus mediates between the primitive drives of the id and the demands of the social and physical environment.

Is ego a human phenomenon? Is the human ego an essential ingredient in the art making process? How does the ego fuel the creation of artwork, and how does it manifest in your work?
We leave the interpretation of this theme up to you, the artist.
Pieces for the exhibition should relate to the theme of Ego, and will be selected based upon a combination of: artistic quality, technical execution and/or conceptual strength, originality and impact.

General Information: Work in all media is eligible, but must be equipped to hang on a gallery wall. Unfortunately freestanding sculptural work cannot be considered.
