Call for Proposals
Remembering and Forgetting
Grunwald Gallery of Art
Application Deadline: April 1, 2019
Exhibition Dates: Oct 11 - Nov 20, 2019
In conjunction with Indiana University’s 2019 Themester, Remembering and Forgetting, the Grunwald Gallery invites IU SoAAD MFA/BFA/BA students, SoAAD faculty and Monroe County, Indiana artists to submit proposals for an upcoming exhibition. As a form of human expression, memory is often an instrumental theme for visual artists. Examples of this can be found in all mediums and forms, whether it plays an integral role in the artist’s process or uses nostalgia as subject matter. The exhibition will feature artwork that responds to this theme and is open to the artist’s interpretation. Artwork will be selected by the gallery based on quality of work, relevance to the theme and feasibility within the given space. Installation works will be considered; however, artists must be available to install the work with limited gallery assistance.
Must be IU SoAAD MFA/BFA/BA student, SoAAD Faculty, or Monroe County, Indiana artist to submit. Must be a resident of Monroe County in Fall 2019. Submissions outside of Monroe County are not eligible. Must be at least 18 and over. All mediums will be considered. Selected artwork must be ready to install by the time of installation. If submitting an installation piece, artist must be available for installation. The gallery reserves the right to refuse work that arrives incomplete (not ready for installation) or that is not representative of the work submitted in the proposal.
