“Shitholes” Open Artist Call (Philadelphia, PA)

“Shitholes” Open Artist Call (Philadelphia, PA)

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, May 31, 2018

“Shitholes” is a one-day-only art gallery brought to you by Le Chapeau Project, an organization that curates and organizes ephemeral exhibitions around the world to promote emerging and unknown contemporary artists not often showcased in typical galleries.

Founders Fatène Ben-Hamza (currently Casablanca, Morocco) and Steve Garguilo (currently Ciudad Juárez, Mexico), both living in migration frontiers some depict as “shitholes,” want to challenge the current negative narrative spreading across the globe by showcasing the brilliant work of artists from these “shithole” regions.

The exhibit will showcase contemporary artists from at least 15 countries, including Haiti, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Tanzania, and Tunisia. Artists from the United States are also to be expected. Through this exhibit, the audience will get a unique chance to dive into “shitholes” like never before!

The exhibition space is TBA. To apply click here
