International Deadline: May 9, 2018 – For this
exhibit Manifest is seeking works of visual art which somehow, in some
way, represent or are realized as ‘hacked’. This may be in the form of
narrative, symbolic, or suggestive works. Abstract or conceptual
interpretations of the theme are welcome alongside those of technical or
literal representations. In our staff brainstorming sessions during
Manifest’s season planning we jotted down these notes, along with the
definitions and ideas above: open source; no gates; vampires &
pirates; found objects; transparency; and democratization, among others.
It is important not to assume a purely technological basis for the
theme. Works of all kinds, from painting and drawing, to photography,
collage, printmaking, sculpture, various combinations of media and
processes, as well as more straight forward work that nevertheless deals
with the theme as a matter of subject or content are all completely
HACKED is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries
must represent original works which address the broad theme as defined
ANNUAL CASH AWARD
A new annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the
awarding of one significant 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.
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.
