CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS | ARTIVISM 2020 BLACK LIVES MATTER EXHIBIT

 Attention Chicago Artists and Activists!

In preparation for our Fall 2020 focus topic, ARTIVISM 2020 we are mounting an interactive exhibit on the Library’s first floor featuring artwork created for and/or inspired by the recent BLM Protests in Chicago and across the country    Inspired by the evolving art gallery that has taken over the fences surrounding the White House in D.C., we are covering our first floor walls with protest artwork, signage, printed matter, ephemera, and more.,.We are hoping to create an exhibit that will be up through the Fall Semester that reinforces the relationships between protest and artwork, as well as captures an important historic moment in both.
Deadline:  September 25th, 2020
We are seeking work from all corners of the Chicago arts  community.  To submit  to the exhibit, e-mail kbowen@colum.edu (subject line: BLM Exhibit) with 3-5 images of your work  . We will work with you to arrange drop-off and/or installation details in September.  The end exhibit will be both virtual and physical, with opportunities for contributing artists to engage in panel discussions, interviews, and more throughout the semester.
