The 2017 annual open call asks artists to seek out what’s hidden behind the veil of perception to reveal chaos in the mundane, beauty in the ordinary, and depravity in the wholesome.
Understanding the duality of our world can be an enriching activity; reflecting it through art showcases the wit and playfulness of the mind. One’s perception of their surroundings is often skewed through their personal lens and individual worldview. Exposure to other viewpoints increases the ability to see beyond a singular observation and develop a more expansive perspective.
