Description

LUMIÈRE-The presence of light in a work of art can bring a piece to life. Light surrounds us, defines our world, and is part of everything we see. We respond to it emotionally and try to understand it in a metaphorical and spiritual sense. One whisper of light can determine the strength and spirit of a piece. Art is all about the light; whether it is dark, bright or dull, natural or artificial, the light is the magic. Light is the component of transforming the image from ordinary to extraordinary. For this exhibition, show us LUMIÈRE from your perspective.

About Coyote:
Coyote sparks creativity in young people, putting tools in their hands to build skills and forge their futures. Over 1,500 young people ages 10 to 16 come to Coyote year-round for 20-hour hands-on workshops with professional artists, chefs, furniture makers, fashion designers, metal artists, animators, dancers, filmmakers, and all manner of creative people. Our primary campus is in the heart of the Central District, but last year we opened a new site in Lake City so that more kids from different races, economic backgrounds, and cultures can come together for pay-what-works-for-you explorations of creativity during their out-of-school time.

Coyote culture is grounded in equity, ingenuity, collaboration, and fun. Every member of the staff has a voice in collaborative decision making, and every member shares a commitment to the organization and its mission.

Coyote Central is an equal opportunity employer that is committed to organizational, personal, and systemic growth in equity.

BARCELONA CONTEMPORARY 2021 analyzes the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time, through two main sections: MIXING IDENTITIES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES.

MIXING IDENTITIES analyzes the hidden parts of our identities, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the complex labyrinths of our consciousness. The human body is a changing system that connects us with other bodies and spaces to perceive the surrounding reality; a strong communication system with its own language and infinite ways of expression.

FUTURE LANDSCAPES are abstract, infinite and conceptual, associated with a sense of freedom and infinite extension. Primarily experienced with the mind, spaces redefining their limits and borders, transforming surfaces in open flow of pure ideas. This section focuses on the concept of the borders and the structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, the space and the ground.

Deadline for applications is May 15, 2021 (11.59 PM of your local time)

How to Apply

With the persisting realities of the pandemic, artists and entrepreneurs in our communities have faced increasing financial challenges, exacerbated by radicalized rhetoric that has fueled anti-Asian violence. In response, Tia Ho and the Wing Luke Museum has launched UPLIFT our community-driven, multi-week giveaway series that will celebrate and raise emergency relief funds for creatives of Asian and Pacific descent in the Puget Sound Area.



We are reaching out in hopes that your organization will promote awareness and a call to action for our communities. The more donations we receive, the more artists we are able to support. As UPLIFT’s fiscal sponsor, Wing Luke Museum is distributing 100% of the raised funds to APA creatives who apply for emergency relief.




Donations of any amount are accepted online; via mail-in check to Wing Luke Museum 719 S King St Seattle, WA 98104; or over the phone at (206) 623-5124 x202. The application for aid is also open now and closes May 31 at 11:59PM PT. Artists may find the application here.



Now thru June, UPLIFT is partnering with a different APA artist or entrepreneur each week to offer a special giveaway that highlights the Featured Creative’s work and story. Throughout the three-month fundraiser, donors will have the chance to win unique and experiential prizes from 12 creatives such as one-on-one cooking classes, original artworks, festival tickets, and more. Each Featured Creative and their giveaway will be announced weekly through UPLIFT’s Instagram account @UPLIFTAPA.
