International Deadline: March 26, 2019 – The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, presents an open call for small work, 7” or smaller.
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 this
results in 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. The only limitation is that entries
must represent original works of art that are 7″ or smaller not
including framing or presentation parts not considered part of the
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts
media (including 2D, 3D, etc.), genre, subject matter, and content. The
only limiting factor is size. There is no other thematic guideline.
The 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’.
JURY & CURATOR
This exhibit will be juried by an anonymous several member volunteer
panel of professional artists 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 design the exhibit
from the jury-approved pool.
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
$40 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable. Number of entries is unlimited.
