WHO WE ARE INDIVIDUALLY
EXPLORING THE SELF-PORTRAIT
February 29 – March 26, 2016
Altered Esthetics seeks submissions of self-portraits from Minnesota-based artists and community members, all to create a unified and broad representation of the diverse cultures who call Minnesota home. Ae will be paying particular attention to exhibiting works that uncover gender and race inequalities, stereotypes and hypocrisies.
The self-portrait is possibly the most personal form of art expression, as it explores and expands upon the statement, “I am”. Just as portraits give us a window into how artists see their subjects and what messages they might be trying to send about a person or group of people, a self-portrait can reveal a person’s self-concept, including how they see themselves in relation to society. What can a large group of self-portraits say about who we are and where we live?
Submit up to five images with our online form: http://www.alteredesthetics.org/form/submit-art-upcoming-exhibition
Deadline: December 15, 2015
It is free to submit and there will be no exhibition fee if your work is selected.
