Graphic Content Exhibition Call to Artists

Graphic Content Exhibition Call to Artists

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, May 2, 2021

Exhibition on display in the
Live Like a Hero Gallery,
June 18, 2021 through fall 2021

The National Liberty Museum is excited to announce their summer exhibition Graphic Content, opening Friday, June 18, 2021. Through this call-to-artist and jury selection process, NLM aims to bring together a large, diverse group of artists who do not shy away from confronting and responding to difficult issues within their creative process.

Graphic Content will give space to graphic-centered artworks that act as social commentary, taking inspiration from counterculture tradition and giving voice to those outside the mainstream. The artwork should embody your unique, uncensored response to themes relating to deeper, more personal reflections on the current social and political climate. The most essential element of these artworks is that they make a statement, working to upset and change the status quo through visual expression. For the past 20 years, the National Liberty Museum has worked to inspire thoughtful action, educating their audiences on the importance of active participation to ensure understanding and equality for all. Through Graphic Content, NLM hopes that visitors will learn from artists who are not afraid of controversial content, especially those who shine a spotlight on certain unabashed truths. How does your work aim to remove certain social stigmas and give clarity to ourselves and our histories, helping us better understand the present, and grow towards a more equitable future?

As part of your application, please write a short response to the prompt and question posed above (in bold, directions in application). If selected, your response will be included in the exhibition to give context to your work, and how it relates to who you are as an individual within the broader theme.

For this exhibition, NLM is looking for a variety of mediums in 2D or 3D, including but not limited to illustration, comics, ‘zines, graphic novels, street art, digital graphics, digital arts, sculpture, and glass. Participating artwork will be selected by an in-house jury at the National Liberty Museum.
