Regional call for 'Borders, Boundaries, and Beyond'
Deadline: April 28

 

The call is open to artists whose art explores the complex visual intersections of borders and boundaries as well as art where limits dissolve, and new narratives emerge.

 

Artists are invited to interpret "Borders, Boundaries, and Beyond" through the lens of their own experiences and artistic vision - whether confronting geopolitical borders, personal boundaries, or exploring the limitless realms of the imagination, this call encourages a broad spectrum of interpretations. Artists are urged to investigate the dichotomies of confinement and liberation, order and chaos, and to envision new possibilities that transcend conventional constraints.
