International Deadline: March 28, 2018 – Every year Manifest produces an exhibit of little works of art from around the world.
Each iteration of the exhibit brings in hundreds of powerful yet
diminutive works for our jury to consider. Inevitably we end up with a
gallery full of diverse, compelling, and exquisite little gems.
Manifest’s patrons eagerly await the Magnitude SEVEN event each year.
This annual project is one of the most varied exhibits in our season. So
we are always excited to offer this call to artists to submit works no
larger than seven inches in any dimension (any proportion).
Standard presentation devices like pedestals, mats, and frames that
are not considered part of the work of art are not limited by the 7″
Magnitude SEVEN is open to everyone. Professionals as well as
students are encouraged to enter. The only limitation is that entries
must represent original works of art that are 7″ or smaller.
CASH AWARD POTENTIAL
The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the
awarding of one cash prize ($2500) to a single work selected as the
‘best of the entire season’. Winner will be determined by a final
end-of-year jury from among a pool of all top-scoring works from each
exhibit’s jury process across the current exhibition season.
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts
media (including 2D, 3D, video, etc.), genre, subject matter, and
content. The only limiting factor is size. There is no other thematic
JURY & CURATOR
Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This
exhibit will be juried by an anonymous 5-9 member panel of professional
and academic advisors with a broad range of expertise relative to art
and design. The jury will then pass along their recommendations to the
exhibit curator who will make the final selections from the
Manifest Press will produce a high quality hard-cover
publication documenting each entire season of exhibits, artists, and
works shown. This continues Manifest’s commitment to long-term
documentation and dissemination of our projects, and the expansion of
physical exhibits into a broader geography and time frame, while also
bringing all exhibits together under one cover each year to create a
better product which will be more valuable to the public, teachers,
libraries, and exhibiting artists.
$40 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry.
