Exhibition Opportunities

Call for Artists: 140 Characters


Type: Exhibition Opportunities [View all]
Posted by: Root Division
Deadline: Mon, August 13th, 2018

Root Division invites artists working in all media to submit work for 140 Characters. This group exhibition will explore the ways in which technology has altered modern language and communication.

The way we communicate is in transition as evolving technologies change our relationship to language and how we relate to one another. Social media, specifically, presents information that can range from enlightening to infuriating. Individuals can simultaneously choose to interact with a myriad of digital platforms to not only absorb information, but also speak their minds and produce content. These platforms are both limited and unrestricted, leaving room for misunderstanding, misinterpretation and misuse of text.

Artists who are working in text-based art, as well as other mediums, are encouraged to submit work exploring communication, consumption of information, impact of screen-culture, and various ways in which technology influences our modes of communication in daily life.

Deadline for Submission: Monday, August 13, 2018 at 11:59 pm
Exhibition Dates: November 7 - December 1, 2018
