Ephemeral Archived Deadline Approaches!

The Ephemeral Archived Call For Work
CALL FOR ENTRY: Juried Exhibition at Emerge Gallery

The Ephemeral Archived

When: Jan 4-24th, 2019

Deadline: October 31st 2018

Where: Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge Gallery

At times, we have the expectation that our work will last forever or that it will at least outlast the maker. However, in some cases the physical piece itself is not meant to be lasting, but is instead meant to have a lasting effect, be it on a body, an environment, or a place. And while that piece might have an expiration date, the documentation of it is indeed lasting. Documenting, either with photography, video, drawings, or even effected objects such as material or clothing is as much an important aspect of making as the physical work.

Photographs that document process or the final effect of ephemeral or temporary works are preferred but may be accompanied by any remnants or artifacts of the piece so long as they can be hung on a wall. Artists are encouraged to submit a 150-word artist statement with their entry.
