Competitions Site:Brooklyn Gallery’ International Juried Exhibition: The Freedom of Abstraction

SiteBrooklynBrooklyn, New York, United States

Site Brooklyn

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: March 12, 2019 – This is a worldwide call to artists to submit work for an exhibition at Site:Brooklyn. On display May 3 thru June 1, 2019.

The rise of abstraction meant freedom from the strictures and constraints of naturalism and representation. For some, it means stripping away the visual irrelevancies of nature in order to explore different subjects, an exploration of the artist’s own imagination, or finding the essential qualities a form observed in the real world. The freedom of abstraction rests on a paradox: the liberation of non-objective art often meant the new focus on order, form, and purity.

ELIGIBILITY
This is a juried exhibition for artists working in drawing, painting, printmaking, wall mounted sculpture, collage, and video. This exhibition is open to all artists 18 years of age or older.
