2020 Call to Artists

admin
CALLING ALL NASTY WOMEN ARTISTS:

When:

September 4, 2020 – November 1, 2020

Where:

Crosstown Arts, Memphis, Tennessee

Our 2020 exhibit is scheduled this Fall at Crosstown Arts in Memphis, Tennessee.

We hope our dates will remain in tact, but with the outbreak of COVID-19, no one is sure of anything anymore.

However, if you are stuck at home with stressful energy to burn, now might be a good time to work on pieces for our scheduled exhibit.

NASTY WOMEN MEMPHIS

is the Memphis, Tennessee representative and exhibit of Nasty Women Global Art Exhibitions and Activism. More than 80 exhibits have followed globally, but the original took place in Queens, NYC, after the 2016 election of Donald Trump.

We are a group exhibition that serves to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and reproductive rights. Our exhibit also serves as a fundraiser to support Planned Parenthood of Memphis, defending these rights and to echo the platform for organization after the Trump Presidential Inauguration in January 2017.

THIS EXHIBITION IS A FUNDRAISER:

The works in this exhibition will be available for sale – 50% of the sale will go to Planned Parenthood of Memphis and exhibit expenses not covered by donated supplies, with the other 50% to be paid to the artist. If the artist chooses to allot more than 50% from the sale of their art, up to 100%, please indicate such intent in your submission or at the time of acceptance.

There is no fee to participate in the show if you provide a piece to sell in the exhibition.

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK:

Submission Forms are received by the curatorial team by completing the web form, using the SUBMIT WORK link at the top of each page. If you are unable to get the form to work, please email nastywomenmemphis@comcast.net with image files of your submissions and the information below.

PLEASE FILL OUT SUBMISSION FORM:

This includes:

  • Contact Information
  • Details of Work (title, date, size, media)
  • Artist bio
  • A short statement about either the work submitted or a more general statement about why you are participating.
    If you do not feel comfortable providing any information beyond the practical contact and work details that is fine. If you wish to remain anonymous we can arrange that as well, but we must have your contact details (which will not be made public).

All submitting artists will be contacted by the NASTY WOMEN Memphis curatorial team through the information they provide, with a status of their submission and details of when and where they should deliver their accepted pieces.

We have almost 6 months to put this exhibit together and it will be the most important one we have ever put on. We hope that together we will have twice as many artists and raise twice as much money as we did in 2017.

PLEASE STAY SAFE OUT THERE:

Make your voices be heard through creation of  powerful, relevant, and well planned pieces.  We hope to help influence voter turnout in our area for the 2020 presidential election, and remove Donald Trump from office!
