PLAY is an exhibition that will examine games and play through the lens of contemporary art. We will look at play from a variety of vantage points, including: play as a vital tool for experimentation and innovation in art-making; play as a fruitful source of subject matter and content; and play as a strategy to interact with and engage audiences in contemporary art.

AAC will select approximately 7-10 artists to present works in our 7 main gallery spaces. We are looking for artists working in a variety of media. Out-of-the-box exhibitions concepts that employ new technologies like augmented reality and mobile applications are also encouraged.

Who can submit work?
Artists who produce cutting-edge contemporary art in any and all media, and who live or work in Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware, or Pennsylvania may submit proposals. Any existing works must have been completed within the last 3 years in order to be considered.
