International Deadline: January 28, 2019 – The color
blue has an extensive and rich artistic history, exerting its power on
human’s social, religious, and aesthetic imagination from ancient times
onwards. From the medieval era, various shades of blue have come to
signify royalty, religious purity, romance, sadness, and the great
expanses of nature. In the 20th century, the rise of monochrome and the
advent of space photography further expanded the blue’s aesthetic
domain. That being said, what’s new in blue? Our call seeks to further
this exploration of color in contemporary practice. Works in traditional
and new media are invited, as are the freshest and freest ideas.
Site:Brooklyn Gallery located in Brooklyn, New York is dedicated to exhibiting the current practice of contemporary artists.
