Submission Deadline July 1, 2016
Art has long been a powerful medium for individuals to convey messages and concepts that may otherwise be difficult to express. Have you ever wondered how your individuality, your community, or your identity can be portrayed in artwork? Have you ever thought about who and what is being represented in art work, and how art can add to these conversations of social justice? If so, we urge you to submit your artwork.
In partnership with VSA Massachusetts' Open Door Gallery and the Disability Policy Consortium, the Disability & Intersectionality Summit is curating an art exhibit that will shed light on the theme Disability and Intersectionality.
The exhibit will explore this theme through the creative works of artists with disabilities whose identities and artwork have also been shaped by their experiences of disability, gender, race, sexuality, age, or ethnicity. Artists with disabilities who are also people of color, and other marginalized voices are encouraged to submit their work to this call.
Intersectionality: examines how intersecting identities such as gender, race, class, ability, sexual orientation, religion, and age interact, and proposes that we should think of each element as inextricably linked with other elements in order to fully recognize an individual’s identity.
We invite artists with disabilities to submit 2D art work, or multimedia video for consideration in this upcoming Disability & Intersectionality Art Exhibit which will be hosted by VSA Massachusetts' Open Door Gallery from September 1 - November 12, 2016.
