TOPOGRAPHIES

An International Call for Art About Layers, Mapping, & Paths

Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center   /   Deadline: 01/07/20

Download in PDF Format

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists currently living in Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana to submit works which in some way address the theme of TOPOGRAPHIES (works about layers, mapping, paths, and related concepts).

Whether it be our skin, personalities, culture, or the surface of the planet Earth, layers, pathways, and the documents and images that explain and support them are all methods of understanding—lenses for revealing the surface of things and what lies beneath. Strata are time-capsules, representing tangible chronological data stored away for exploitation or harvest at some later time. But how do layers and paths as concepts occur in works of art, in the art making process, or in the resulting experience for the viewer?



Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view of the theme. This exhibit has no defined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most traditional realism to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental.
