BECA Call to Artists - due Feb 21

A call for 2D and 3D submissions for the second international emerging contemporary art group exhibition at BECA gallery, New Orleans

‘Mirror for the 21st Century’

Art is the means by which we communicate what it feels like to be alive.

- Antony Gormley

THEME: “Art is often described as reflecting the spirit of an age, providing an insight into the complexities of living in a particular time, place or society.

How will the early years of the third millennium be characterized? The theme for this exhibition focuses on works that reflect a personal or collective experience of what it means to be alive now and is open to artists globally. It can document a brief, individual moment, explore wider issues that relate to contemporary life or suggest cultural strategies for improving lives locally, nationally and internationally.” – Helen Pheby, PhD.

CURATOR and JUROR – Helen Pheby, PhD, Deputy Curator, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, England.
