    Call for Submissions!
    poetry—performance—sculpture—2D—video—dance—new media—zines—etc

    Deadline: April 12th

    The Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Department’s and SOTA’s student art group organizers are planning a multi-location art show that interrogates and explores the ideas of how bodies occupy space(s).  This multi-media show will be installed in the Student Art Space and the GSWS Departmental space, with “satellite” locations in alleys, parks, and other public locations, in addition to launching an interactive “third space” show online.  


    For installations in specific places, send a short and sweet space usage proposal along with your submission. 


    Some considerations include:

    • How people/bodies consent (or don’t consent) to occupying space:  pieces that reflect on imprisonment, detention, forced labor, low wage work, and violence;
    • How art has the potential to reveal the architecture of the space it occupies as well as the machinations of its own making;
    • How a piece can be a “success” or “failure” given its context (how some art “fails” in digital iterations that is highly accessible in physical iterations, for example);
    • How art can interact with public spaces in ways that are thoughtful and non-exploitative;
    • How street performance, dance, flash mobs, and  public theater calls into question institutional “rules” about how bodies should occupy public space; and
    • How raced, classed, and gendered bodies occupy spaces in different and complex ways, given institutionalized oppressive regimes that regulate such bodies in space. 

     

    For installations in specific places, send a short and sweet space usage proposal along with your submission.
