Open Call for Artists- The Queer Landscape: The Evolving Queer Experience

Exhibition Dates: 03/20/20, 03/21/20

ART + ACTIVISM: Examining the current socio-political climate, there is unrest and frustration that is driving an undercurrent for change; a need for more from our leadership, as well as from one another. Our community is continually evolving as more of us grow aware of our individual positions within society and attempt to express our truths. Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble has curated a series of performances; ART + ACTIVISM. That re-examines the socio-political landscape in Chicago and how art can better benefit the needs of the greater Chicago community.

The ART + ACTIVISM performance series is broken into four parts to disseminate a topic and inspire conversation. Those topics are women, race, queer identity, and immigration. Each performance throughout the series will feature an accompanying art exhibition. Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble is seeking visual art work for their third exhibition- The Queer Landscape: The Evolving Queer Experience.

Art works should correspond with the theme of each performance throughout the series of Art + Activism. Artist submissions should include: bio, two images of work or a link to where work can be viewed, and a statement of proposed work for the show.

Themes for Work:

  • History of the Queer Experience
  • Political/ Social
  • HIV
  • It Gets Better Movement
  • Equal Marriage
  • Retrospective Look & Forward-Moving Look of The Queer Experience
  • Sex & Body Positivity
  • Anti-Shaming
  • Queer Vocabularies
  • Bridging Understanding
  • How to Communicate
