IU Kokomo Art Gallery’s Call for Entry:
I See Me
Media representation of all religions, genders, races, sexualities, and body types is essential. Without full representation, the narratives of some individuals are missed. We all enjoy the feeling of being connected or relatable to something or someone. It is important to know that we are not alone, and we are able to place ourselves in the skin of the lead role of that action movie or Syfy novel. We enjoy seeing reflections of ourselves in media, whether its social media, television, magazines or even video games. Artists are encouraged to submit work inspired by how their own identities, or identities in general, are depicted in the media. Broad interpretations of the theme of identities in the media are encouraged.
GALLERY: The Indiana University Kokomo Art Gallery is located on the IU Kokomo campus. The gallery displays artwork by local, regional, national, and international artists throughout the year. This exhibition will be curated by Art Gallery Director, Tara Scott. There will be a $25.00 per artist entry fee that will be invoiced once the entry is in.
