Wide Open 9
By Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition


 
U.S. National Deadline: January 19; February 16, 2018 – The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is excited to announce our eighth annual national juried art show, Wide Open 9. Our prestigious juror is Carmen Hermo, Assistant Curator for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum.

The exhibit runs May 12 – June 17, 2018.

The broad theme of Wide Open 9 encompasses all the possibilities of knowledge and freedom and love—wide open spaces…arms wide open…eyes wide open—but as with all things, there is the inevitable opposite—wide open to attack…corruption…failure. What kind of fantasy is this? What does it really indicate? This juried show looks to explore this idea of “wide open” in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche.

ELIGIBILITY
This call for submissions is open to all residents of the U.S. and its Territories 18 years of age or older. This is a juried exhibition for artists working in all traditional and non-traditional 2-D and 3-D media, including film/video when part of an installation. All artwork must be original in concept, design and execution. All work should be non-utilitarian in nature. This is a fine art exhibition.
