University Art Gallery: POST-RACIAL U.S.?

Deadline: September 22, 2013 (ONLINE)

Juried Exhibition
New Mexico State University
University Art Gallery

Las Cruces, New Mexico
October 25 - December 20, 2013

The University Art Gallery at New Mexico State University seeks contemporary artists working with any media to explore the issue of race in American history and society. With the election of our first African American president in 2008, many pundits spoke of the U.S. entering a "post-racial" era. Have we?

Exhibited works will be selected by Albuquerque-based curator and art historian Andrew Connors. Accepted works will be exhibited in the University Art Gallery at New Mexico State University between October 25 and December 20, 2013. The UAG will pay for shipping of work both directions. Artists must provide their own shipping container for each accepted work. Work must be received by the week of October 14-18, 2013. The UAG will cover the full value of the work "from door-to-door" under a state insurance policy.
