Call for Artists: Cryin' Out Loud

The Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Fe, NM seeks entries for a juried art exhibition, April 21 - July 9, 2017 in CCA's Muñoz Waxman Gallery. Cash prizes totaling $1,500. Juror: Micol Hebron. Cryin' Out Loud examines the role of women's and femmes' voices as expressed in art about politics, activism, and emotion. Considering both the metaphoric and literal voice, the exhibit explores and celebrates the use of art as a form of speaking up and out. Juror's Statement: Cryin' Out Loud takes each word of this maxim seriously - Crying. Out. Loud. - and navigates the various implications of the phrase, whether exasperated and fed up ("Oh, for crying out loud!") or literal, as one who does not hide her desperation or emotion while she is actually "crying out loud". Similarly, "living out loud" has associations with survivors of abuse, with activism in the LGBTQ community, and with anyone refusing to "be quiet" about issues of oppression, identity and authorship. The exhibition will consist of work in all media that embraces emotion as statement; that broadcasts social and political concerns, and that reacts to and resists the structures that continue to oppress us. Artists can enter up to 5 images ($35 entry fee), statement, CV and web link. All works must be made within the last 2 years. Deadline: March 5, 2017. More info. Contact: email or call 505.982.1338.
