CUT: An International Call for Works Made by Cutting

Manifest Creative Research Gallery   /   Deadline: 06/05/21

Download in PDF Format

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit works that address or feature cutting as a primary and dominant, but not necessarily exclusive method of creation. All manner of interpretations and explorations involving the concept or examples of cutting are welcome, including traditional and non-traditional approaches in any media.

Scissors, knife, saw, laser, CNC router, water... these and more may be used to cut materials to form useful, beautiful, or meaningful things, by design and artfulness. To cut is to take a simple action that may, as if by magic, turn one thing into two, many into more—or alternatively to reduce by elimination parts of a whole to achieve a different, better whole. Too many cuts leaves one with only waste. Just the right number result in, perchance, a miracle—art.


Cincinnati, OH
