Type: Exhibition Opportunities [View all]
Posted by: Nave Gallery
Deadline: Sun, January 27th, 2019
“Avatar” is originally a Sanskrit word describing mortal incarnations of Hindu deities. In colloquial use, the term refers to a digital image or 3D character representing an individual operating a computer. Drawing inspiration from this concept, the AVATARS exhibition is a transdisciplinary exploration of folkloric characters, alter-egos and cyborgs created to express relatable narratives. Just as poets, game designers and dream interpreters examine humanity through archetypes, artists employ personas. Figures are masked or transformed through symbol while ancient myths and fable-like stories are reinterpreted within these new tales spun.
This exhibit debuted at the San Francisco Art Institute in fall of 2018. For the Somerville exhibit, a selection of works from the San Francisco show will travel to Somerville to continue the thread of the exhibit from its inception.
All media variations will be considered and are encouraged to apply, including but not limited to: 2D and 3D objects, video, performance art, movement/dance, sound, interactive art, robots and installation. The deadline for submission is January 27, 2019.
Artists, engineers and creatives of all types are encouraged to apply. Questions regarding work and process can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org, and the curators will respond as quickly as possible.
Artists should have own equipment for installation, but curators will help with sourcing equipment as best they can.
