BOOK CLUB: Call for Art About Books, Narrative and Works Inspired by Literature

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit works of art about or inspired by stories, story-telling, legends, myths, texts, tomes, and the narratives we construct. Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media (including sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, etc.)

A story is an account. Stories carry human history. They predict our future.

A story is the thing we use to relate an event, real or not, that happened and who it happened to and how they changed, or didn't change, or caused change.

Story telling is the way that we can relate an account of an event, of something that we’ve experienced. Or possibly the experience of someone that we’ve made up, a sequence of events that didn’t happen, or didn’t happen in that way, or maybe that are complete fabrications—a 'story'.

It is the thing that happens after the event, the way we share with others in the aftermath. But sometimes it comes before.

What does the visual account look like? Like a movie? A sequence of images? A single picture carrying the weight of a thousand words? What visual cues give us the beginning, middle, and end? Do we express a story with illustrative methods? Do we distill it into a separate visual work, symbolizing rather than relating it?

$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.
