VCFA and Vermont Studio Center announce Alumnx Exhibition

VCFA/VSCVCFA and the Vermont Studio Center (VSC) are proud to announce an upcoming all-alumnx exhibition to take place in May 2018. 

Alumnx of VCFA and VSC are invited to submit work to include in a group show juried by Meg Onli, the Assistant Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania. 

Alumnx is a gender-neutral term that embraces the full spectrum of gender identities within our community.

VCFA and VSC are united in their belief that the arts are central to the human experience and have the ability not only to reflect reality but to also create it. This call invites alums of both organizations to submit artwork in any media that was created in response to our current contemporary political upheaval. This may be articulated either literally or metaphorically as an expression of the potential of creativity to shift consciousness. All progress and change has been achieved through a radical reimagining of what is and what could be. We are seeking a vision of a future that has yet to be determined, understood, or adopted by any position of power or control.

In addition to her work as Assistant Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania, juror Meg Onli recently showed her Speech/Acts exhibition, which explores experimental black poetry and how the social and cultural constructs of language have shaped black American experiences.

The Alumnx Exhibition will run in VCFA’s College Hall Gallery May 4-June 1, with an opening reception taking place on Saturday, May 12. The submission deadline is Friday, March 23. 

Applications must be submitted online via Slideroom and there is a $10 application fee. All media will be accepted and applicants can submit up to five work samples, a current CV and artist statement. Work must be completed within the last three years.
