Download in PDF Format

Now accepting submissions for the spring 2022 exhibition, Collateral Damage, a group show featuring work concerning mental health. The pandemic has highlighted the mental health crisis in our country by removing some of the stigma that prevents discussion of mental health issues. At this critical juncture, when we have all experienced some level of isolation and the inability to control our own worlds, Collateral Damage seeks to harness the momentum to continue that conversation.

In order to open the exhibition to artists with financial barriers, the application process is free, and selected artists will receive a stipend, paid after the exhibition has launched. In addition to the exhibition, Collateral Damage will host a series of artist talks and discussions with the aim of destigmatizing mental illness through open discussion and genuine representation. Selected artists will be given the opportunity to participate in the programming in a number of different ways.

This exhibition will be held on the third floor of the Pyle Center in downtown Madison, WI. We may or may not be able to show a small number of free standing sculptures. The Pyle Center uses the Walker Hanging system, hanging work should not be heavier than 30 lbs. The Pyle Center does have the capacity to host a film or live performance event, so video works, new media, or performance artists are encouraged to apply. Unfortunately installation art cannot be accepted at this time.

Works will have to be delivered by mid April 2022.

Artists will retain all sales from works sold.
