Goethe Pop Up Seattle, in partnership with Ken Winnick, cordially invites 3D artists to enter original work for a combined digital and physical exhibition entitled, No Longer and Not Yet.

The call asks artists to submit works that represent a true and lived experience from this year, 2020, reflecting creatively upon their thoughts, hopes, and frustrations. Works that come from a place of uncertainty and contemplate a world in the future.

No Longer and Not Yet consists of two components:

  • A high quality digital display of photographs and videos of selected 3D art works from national and international artists.
  • A solo exhibition of 3 - 5 physical works from one selected King County artist, presented as "Curator's Choice".
Both on display November 14 to December 12 at Das Schaufenster Gallery, an artist-run experimental window space that brings art to Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. The digital works will also be featured on Vimeo.

Honorariums will be awarded to all selected artists, and are grant supported.

*NEW* We have been able to determine our honorarium amounts, as follows:
  • Honorarium for selected "Curator's Choice": $1,000 (One award, physical display)
  • Honorarium for selected digital display of works: $250 per artist selected

NOTE: The title of "No Longer and Not Yet" is taken from an essay by Hannah Arendt, a review of The Death of Virgil, by Hermann Broch, and published in The Nation", September 14, 1946.
 

ART SHOW DATES: November 14 - December 12, 2020

Registration is open to beginning, intermediate, and established career artists.

No Longer and Not Yet -- Longer description

Presented as a grant written by Ken Winnick, the No Longer and Not Yet (NLANY) exhibition is one of two cultural events created through the grant; the first of which was a salon discussion entitled Unsettling the Apparatus. Together these two events seek to contextually associate with the philosophies of two iconic thinkers, Hannah Arendt and Vilém Flusser.

For the salon, a zoom discussion took place which addressed questions such as: What is an Apparatus? How do images work in our minds during the thinking process? And, are there ways of seeing that can create empathy and foster change where there are inequities and oppression?  A link to an archive of video presentations and essays from the salon may be found at the Unsettling The Apparatus Video Archive. Contributing artists may wish to consult these archives for inspiration or points of departure, although the prompts summarized here in the call would also be sufficient for artists response.

NLANY plans to be a virtual and physical exhibition reflecting upon and sharing experiences of living in a time driven by growing political division, unrest, and global pandemic; a time experienced from an ever more virtual world; and a time where the outlines of a future world are not yet clear.

Reading the works of Hannah Arendt and Vilém Flusser, we learn that repressive forms of government often emerge when we suffer the “loss of a common world”, and that in our highly computerized and image driven world, we often mistake images and memes for the real world.

NLANY will engage the online and Seattle communities with 3D art that reflects the experiences of people who are deeply connected through electronic media and technical images and who are subject to our current political and historic paradigms of power and oppression, but who also perform the work of thinking and reflecting upon these experiences to create art that captures a genuine sense of their lives during these times of "no longer and not yet". The exhibition hopes to be a visual metaphor that relates to enduring, both mentally and physically, the social challenges that confound the mind and produce feelings of unsettledness. An exhibition that also helps to rebuild our common world through the artistic sharing of lived experiences.

This call asks artists to submit original 3D works of art and to capture them in high quality photography or video, to artistically share true and lived experienceof 2020.
