Call For Art
Create! Magazine Is Thrilled To Invite Visual Artists To Submit Their Work To A Juried International Virtual Exhibition With Gita Joshi.

About Our Guest Curator
Gita Joshi is an independent curator, an award-winning art dealer, and the host of The Curator’s Salon - a podcast and website focussing on the art world with advice for early and mid-career artists.
She has an art history background and trained in curating at Central St Martins before opening her own gallery, Orso Major, in Central London (2013-2016)
Gita has produced artists open studio programs, worked with arts charities, organised open exhibitions, been a juror for art competitions, and curated exhibitions in business spaces as well as within the gallery context.
She works as an artist coach supporting artists to establish their careers and paint their own profitable path.
She has curated over 30 exhibitions and her first virtual exhibition opened in April 2020.
Gita is the author of the bestselling book, Show Your Art - How to build an art career without a Gallery.
She says “There are more artists than galleries could ever manage today. And if you are an artist, you are best positioned to show your art and reach an appreciative audience directly. Artists are the best advocates of their work and need to learn to become their own agents. The idea that you must have a gallery for any kind of success is an outdated one. Sadly this idea keeps artists stuck and unseen, when in fact the tools and resources to exhibit and sell their work is available to them right now.”

Henry Art Gallery
The Henry Art Gallery invites all artists living and working in the Pacific Northwest to propose inspiring images to be installed as public art on bus boards through the exhibition, Set in Motion. Selected artworks will be exhibited throughout the Seattle area from December 2020 through February 2021. The title, Set in Motion, while in part referring literally to the mobile and transitory aspect of the exhibition format, also provides a loose thematic framework for artists to consider. To set in motion, by synonym: to activate, to initiate, to get under way, to instate, to usher in, to open—there are myriad ways to interpret the phrase, and how movement might be considered in this moment. We look forward to seeing yours. We invite all artists in the Pacific Northwest community to consider this invitation. We particularly encourage BIPOC artists and those belonging to underrepresented groups to apply. 10 artists’ work will be presented as part of Set in Motion; they will be selected both through this open call and by curatorial invitation.

About the Project
The Henry Art Gallery invites all artists living and working in the Pacific Northwest to propose inspiring images to be installed as public art on bus boards through the exhibition, Set in Motion. Selected artworks will be exhibited throughout the Seattle area from December 2020 through February 2021.

The title, Set in Motion, while in part referring literally to the mobile and transitory aspect of the exhibition format, also provides a loose thematic framework for artists to consider. To set in motion, by synonym: to activate, to initiate, to get under way, to instate, to usher in, to open-there are myriad ways to interpret the phrase, and how movement might be considered in this moment.

We particularly encourage BIPOC artists and those belonging to underrepresented groups to apply. 10 artists' work will be presented as part of Set in Motion; they will be selected both through this open call and by curatorial invitation.

There is a fast turnaround, but we hope to provide an opportunity for artists to respond to the rapidly changing social, political, economic, and environmental climates in which we find ourselves, interpreted through their different perspectives and personal narratives. The 10 artworks in Set in Motion will form a decentralized group exhibition on the city's public transportation and communication infrastructure.


Images will be installed prominently on a minimum of 20 buses (2 buses for each artwork) and will remain on view for up to 3 months. We are able to work with artists to showcase their work in defined areas of the city. The Henry's website will host the exhibition information including artwork description and artists bios.

We are actively committed to racial equity and to building a strong foundation of inclusivity and awareness in all we do. We value discourse that brings forward voices and positions that have been – and continue to be – oppressed. We do not tolerate hate speech or actions.
We recognize that we are in the process of embodying these values across our exhibitions, programs, and operations; this is our ongoing work.
The Henry Art Gallery is a part of the University of Washington. For more information about race and equity at the UW, see www.washington.edu/raceequity/.

Description

Bellevue Arts Museum is seeking artists, designers, and makers of all kinds working in the Northwest (AK, BC, ID, MT, OR, and WA) to apply to the BAM Biennial 2021: Architecture & Urban Design (scheduled to open November 2021).

Entrants are invited to take a creative approach to architecture and urban design, investigate questions surrounding equity and the built environment during a pandemic, and to pursue the Biennial as an opportunity to push the boundaries of their vision and skill.

Submissions due through CaFÉ by January 1, 2021

With the Eastside being connected to Seattle through a light rail extension in 2023 and Amazon's HQ2 project in downtown Bellevue, Bellevue Arts Museum—itself a signature and important piece of the architecture of King County—seeks to promote a discussion on the essential role of effective and equitable design in what seems to be an ever-expanding urban environment.

The events of 2020 have underlined that Western society's assumptions around the utility and progression of the city are precisely that: only assumptions. They can be subject to the challenge of a pandemic, imperatives of long-ignored injustice, or the excessive imposition of state power. The upheavals of recent months have raised important questions about the way we think of architecture and urban design. Should sustainability and density be continually reassessed to respond appropriately to the issues of tomorrow? Are we striving to create places to live and work that aims to be harmonious, equitable, and true?

BAM BIENNIAL AWARD
Once the exhibition is mounted, BAM Curatorial staff will review the exhibition and award one recipient with a $1,500 cash prize plus the opportunity for a solo exhibition at Bellevue Arts Museum within two years.

2021 JURORS
Once the application deadline has closed, a panel of five jurors will convene to review entries and select artists to participate in the exhibition.

ELIGIBILITY & SUBMISSION MATERIALS
Eligibility will be limited to artists currently residing, working, or studying in the Pacific Northwest region, which for the scope of this exhibition will include Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, Montana, and British Columbia. Artists may be of any age and at any level of recognition or stage in their artistic careers. Artists with a range of backgrounds and experience—emerging and established—are strongly encouraged to apply.

Artists will be required to submit the following materials in digital form by the entry submission deadline via the CaFE platform:
• $20 application fee
• 3-20 digital files representing your work. A minimum of three images is required. Depending on the nature of the work, up to three video files and up to five audio files can also be included. The maximum total number of files allowed on any application is 20. Files should represent past work with an emphasis on recently completed projects.

Plus upload each of the following documents:
• Project proposal description up to 500 words
• Up-to-date resume
• Checklist of digital images (see below for detailed information)
• Any supporting documentation, such as drawings or sketches

Proposals may be as loosely or succinctly defined as the artist desires. Artists are encouraged to submit the maximum number of images to show a cohesive body of work.

Please label images with artist’s last name and a sequential number; for example, if your name is John Smith, your images will be labeled “Smith 01,” “Smith 02,” and so on. Please also provide a checklist with images—including title, date, materials, size of the work pictured, and photo credit—for each work.


ABOUT THE BAM BIENNIAL

In 2010, Bellevue Arts Museum launched the BAM Biennial, a juried exhibition which focused on the work of established and emerging Northwest artists, craftspeople, and designers, with an emphasis on new work. Every two years, Bellevue Arts Museum designated a new focus of exploration, be it a specific medium, technique, process, or theme in art, craft, and design. In 2018, it was decided that the fifth edition in the series, BAM Biennial 2018: BAM! Glasstastic, would be the last Biennial to focus on a single given material. After five different media—fiber, clay, wood, metal, and glass—the next five Biennials will instead be examining specific fields and areas of studies within the realm of art, craft, and design.

The 2021 BAM Biennial will kick off this new format—marked by a gap year in the Biennial's schedule—by inviting designers, artists, and makers of all kinds to submit proposals for an exhibition at BAM that interrogates the fields of architecture and urban design.

How to Apply

Submissions due through CaFÉ™ by January 1, 2021. More information about the biennial and frequently asked questions can be found at https://www.bellevuearts.org/about-us/bam-biennial-2021-prospectus

Alone/ Together is a paradox. 2020 has united and divided the world. There are schisms within our culture that are widening. At the same time, people are coming together in mass to protest injustices. Wearing a mask can be seen as a simple gesture of kindness towards others; yet may also also entice fighting. What does it mean to be alone? What does it mean to be together? What does that look like? Have you felt alone? Have we come together? How have you, as an artist reacted to this paradox?

Each artwork will be considered based upon the merit of individual images submitted by each artist.
