Under The Influence

In our hyper-connected, contemporary society the term “under the influence” is often associated with notions of illicit drug use or the effects of excessive alcohol consumption. But every one of us is under the influence of something - our past, our family, the political climate, social media, peer groups, other artists and more. Whether good or bad, by choice or unconsciously drawn, influences and influencers change our behavior, beliefs, thinking, values and culture.

Artists are the mirrors of culture, so what influences you?

Works in any medium are accepted, for this exploration of the compelling forces producing effects on our actions and opinions.

Artists are invited to submit up to two works of art, each not to exceed 48” in the largest dimension.

Artists MUST include “their influence”, on the Exhibition Entry Form. For film or video work, artists must supply their own projection system.
