Call for Entry 2016: Irresistible Forces

A various media group exhibition.

November 2016


Professional and semi-professional artists are invited to submit works for a group exhibition entitled Irresistible Forces having as a theme those people, events, ideas or forces which influence the formation of individual self-identities. These take many forms and have many variations, from natural to manmade, from the actual to the imagined, from the emotional to the intellectual, from the physical to the conceptual, from the individual to the social. Artists are invited to create artists’ books that reflect on the irresistible forces in their own lives.

Please consider how the viewer is meant to interact (or not) with your work. The books can be for podium or wall display and in any scale. They can be representations of books or functional books. There is a maximum of two works per artist. All styles and media are welcome except electronic. Selection criteria will include: relevance to the theme, approach and interpretation, technical control of medium, clarity of style, rendering skills and quality of submitted documents.

Submitted works must be stable. Works in parts must be safely and securely assembled and accompanied by clear assembly instructions and specialized hardware or accessories if applicable. Wall works must be secure. Works not meeting these criteria or deemed too fragile or unsafe for display in a public gallery will not be considered.
