9th Tapped: Works by Artists and
their Current or Former Instructors

By Manifest Creative Research Gallery


 
International Deadline: September 30, 2018 – Manifest Creative Research Gallery announces a call for artists worldwide to enter our 9th Annual ‘TAPPED’: works by artists and their current or former instructors.

Please Note – this is NOT a call for collaborative works. 
TAPPED will feature works made by distinct individuals.

The relationship between artists and their current or former professors can be a powerful one. Even when this bond is left unstated, we carry our professors’ voices forward in time as we mature as artists and people. We eventually realize that the instruction given by our teachers during our relatively brief careers as students continues to expand within us. We realize that the learning they inspired (or insisted upon) is a chain-reaction process that develops across our lifetime. All of us who have been students carry forward our teachers’ legacy in one form or another. And those who are, or have been teachers, bear witness to the potency of studenthood.

Most working artists have been a student at some point in time. Most have reached where they are because of this.

Out of respect for this artist-teacher bond, and in honor of instructors working hard to help artists tap into a higher mind relative to art and life, we offer TAPPED every year, an annual exhibit that presents works of art by current or former professor/student pairs.

ELIGIBILITY
TAPPED is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works of art or design and each entrant must name at least one current or former instructor or student as an exhibiting companion.

Submission to this exhibit may be initiated by either party. Artists will seek out an instructor who has been a key teacher to them or whose work they particularly respect and ‘tap’ them to participate in this project submission.

Or instructors may ‘tap’ artists who are their current or former students to participate. Either way, the ‘tapping’ is intended as a form of honor and invitation. The type, style, media, etc. of the works by each member may be very different. However, it is highly advised that the pairs (or groups) of entrants discuss and consider their mutual entries prior to submission. This is especially important for current students.

MEDIA
Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media (including sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, etc.)

JURY & CURATOR
Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This project will be juried by a 9-12 member panel of professional and academic volunteer advisors with a broad range of expertise. The jury will then pass along their scores to the project curator who will assemble the final selections from the jury-approved pool.

PUBLICATION
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.

ENTRY FEE
$40 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable. Number of entries is unlimited.

ENTRY
Visit Manifest Gallery online to Apply. The online submission is required.

SALE OF ARTWORK
Artworks are not required to be for sale in order to be included in our exhibitions. Manifest Gallery will retain a commission of 30% of the sale price on all artwork sold during the exhibition.

Visit Manifest Gallery online for complete details and to Apply.
