Call for Collage-Based Work

Deadline: December 31, 2011 (ONLINE)

Call for Collage-Based Work
Thompson Gallery
The Cambridge School of Weston

Weston, MA
Three exhibitions: 2012/2013

2012 marks the centennial of the appearance of collage in painting. In that time, collage has become ubiquitous within contemporary art and culture, and its myriad applications have arguably expanded its original definition to become the most inclusive of artistic processes. Collage at 100 is a three-part exhibition series that opens in September of 2012 and runs through June of 2013. All media considered. The series aims to explore collage within contemporary art practices as much as it endeavors to examine the conceptual and political manifestations of this evolving artistic strategy.

All works must be original and collage-based—anything that involves either an analog or virtual combination of images and/or objects. Glue and fasteners of any type are anticipated, however, these per se are not a prerequisite. All media will be considered. The gallery reserves the right to reject work that differs from submitted images. Preference will be given to any work created in the last three years.

Each entrant may submit up to ten individual works total, and may, if need be, submit up to five detail images per entry for communicating alternate views — in cases of sculpture or installation entries, etc.

How to Apply (truncated)
1. Only online applications will be accepted.
2. The Thompson Gallery uses Entrythingy,® a digital call for entries system.
3. There is no application fee.
