IU East 1st National Juried Exhibition: “Gender”

Indiana University East Whitewater Art Gallery

Entry Deadline: Mar. 2

2325 Chester Blvd.
Richmond, IN 47374


As part of an ongoing commitment to promote contemporary art practices, the Fine Arts Program, with the support of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, invites artists to submit entries to our inaugural themed national juried art exhibition. The theme is to rotate each year and is intended to exhibit the most cohesive group exhibition possible while promoting an in-depth dialogue in a multilayered manner about a given theme. This year’s theme is “Gender,” and artists are invited to submit two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and video (no installation or performance) work that deals with issues of gender. For all works requiring electronics, artists must provide necessary equipment. While we support the breadth of interpretation of this theme, preferences will be given to those works that specifically deal with the following: fluidity of gender and sexuality; commentary on and/or challenging the conventional gendered language in visual art; reworking the conventions of representing gender and gendered bodies; investigating the shifting gender roles in today’s society; questioning the stereotypes of femininity and masculinity; the state of today’s parenthood; and promoting greater understanding of the LGBTQ community. We welcome both conventional and innovative methods and interpretations of the theme.

Accepted work will be exhibited at the Indiana University East Art Gallery in Whitewater Hall from April 9th to June 19th, 2015.
