Call for Entries – IN MEMORIAM

Call for Entries – IN MEMORIAM

This Deadline Expired: Friday, May 12, 2017

In a larger sense, the creation of any art object is a form of externalized memory. However, sometimes, the direct purpose of the artwork is to serve as a vehicle for a specific remembrance, a totem of loss or a symbol of transition from a time, place, or state of being that is no longer accessible. As such, these objects become infused with more life, more substance, than they may at first appear to represent.

Whether through abstract symbols, illustrations of the memorialized, or poetic conceptualizations of the idea of remembrance, Manifest is eager to review and present a collection of works made with these concepts in mind. This project is open to wide interpretation of the theme and is not restricted to traditional definitions of the term ‘in memoriam’ (such as relates to obituaries and epitaphs).

ELIGIBILITY
IN MEMORIAM is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works which address the theme in some considerable way.
MEDIA
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts 2d and 3d media applicable to the theme.

Manifest’s carefully assembled juries change from project to project, and as a body have no collective predisposition towards any particular kind or style of art.

CASH AWARD POTENTIAL
A new annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($2500) to a single work selected as the ‘best of the entire season’. The winner will be determined by a final end-of-year jury from among a pool of all top-scoring works from each exhibit’s jury process across the current exhibition season. This process will apply retroactively to exhibits since the start of our 13th season on September 30, 2016, and applies to each exhibit through August 18, 2017, including this one. Details on the Manifest Grand Jury Prize can be found here.

ENTRY FEE
$36 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry. The number of entries is unlimited. Fees are non-refundable. Entry fee must be paid by U.S. check or money order made payable to MANIFEST, or by credit card via PayPal. (If paying by PayPal PLEASE use the PayPal link provided on the page that follows the submission of the online entry form.)

Official Entry form can be found here.

G. Kellum challenges the rear view perspective of artistic expression and dives into the world of urban aesthetics, as we know it. It also explores the possibilities present in spiritual and psychological practices. Look then, look again. As we move toward the future the images grow more familiar with each truth they unveil. This then becomes a series that grows with time.
