Pride and Prejudice: Gender Realities in the 21st Century
By ARC Gallery
International Deadline: May 20, 2018 – Highly
regarded ARC Gallery announces a call for artists worldwide, belonging
to any gender, to enter our upcoming exhibition, ‘Pride and Prejudice:
Gender Realities in the 21st Century’ The exhibition will be on display
June 20, 2018 thru July 14, 2018, both at our gallery and online.
GENDER—perhaps the most essential aspect of one’s person— has
transcended the binary ideas of the past, evolving into complex
conceptions about identity and sexuality. While contemporary gender
expression has created space for empowerment and freedoms for many, it
remains confusing for some, wrong-headed for others, and a topic that is
continually fascinating to the media. Many welcome this attention and
the progress it bodes; but it has also resulted in pain, harassment, and
discrimination for others.
ARC, established as a woman-run gallery 45 years ago, continues to
embrace and honor the various struggles associated with belonging to a
particular gender. Because of this mission, the gallery is calling for
entries to a juried exhibition entitled “Pride and Prejudice”.
We are looking for artists’ work that reacts to the pride inherent in
belonging to any gender (or not), as well as work that explores the
pain, struggle or prejudice that can result from embracing one’s
identity. We invite artists of all genders to apply to this exhibition,
documenting their own unique experiences in creative dialogue. An array
of gender and gender expressions are welcome.
Open to original works created within the last three years. All
mediums and materials will be considered in addition to video and
performance based arts. No projections or media installations will be
accepted for this show due to space limitations. Open to all artists,
nationwide and international.
Work for this exhibition will be juried by Oli Rodriguez, an
interdisciplinary artist who teaches photography at the School of the
Art Institute… see more
VENUE & AWARDS
Pride and Prejudice’ will open in June 2018–the same month as the Pride
Parade in Chicago. Three “juror awards” will be selected for a small
monetary award ($100 each); and awarded work will also be featured on
the ARC website.
Visit us for more details and easy online application.
Works will be for sale unless noted as NFS (not for sale) on the entry
form. ARC does not take commission on any work sold, but will act as a
liaison for sales of the artists’ work.

ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation is a non-profit, woman-run
cooperative gallery dedicated to providing alternative space exhibition
opportunities for innovative artists outside the commercial gallery
system. Since 1973 ARC has given exposure and support to artists,
providing an atmosphere for the continued development of artistic
potential and experimentation.
ARC is run entirely by its women artist members; as a non-profit
exhibition space. ARC receives some support from outside funding sources
but not enough to cover our operating expenses. Thus, to provide the
space and services we offer to exhibiting artists, we defray our
expenses by charging exhibition fees. Each of the rental spaces in the
gallery actually costs twice as much as we charge the artists.
