PARADICE PALASE Summer 2019 Open Call
Here you will complete your application for our 2nd Annual Summer Open Call Exhibition!
Exhibition Theme: Roots
PARADICE PALASE is seeking artwork that responds to this year’s theme of roots, engaging audiences through topics of personal and geographic history, nature, or the environment. To put down roots is a common American expression that directly relates the long-term growth and stability of plants to the same long-term development of human habitats. With a multitude of insinuations, it’s a concept with that is being increasingly challenged in our current sociopolitical global economy. We chose this theme to bring awareness to these faults and consider ways artists dissect this broad but impressionable word.
Guest Juror: Tiffany Smith
Tiffany Smith is an interdisciplinary artist from the Caribbean diaspora, working in photography, video, installation, and design. Using plant matter, design and home decor elements, pattern, and costuming as cultural signifiers, Smith creates photographic portraits, site responsive installations, user engaged experiences, and assemblages focused on identity, representation, cultural ambiguity, and displacement. Visual references from an array of multi-cultural influences, derived from her upbringing between Miami, Florida, Nassau, Bahamas, and Jamaica inform constructed environments that serve to articulate cultural subjectivities that oscillate between visitor and native roles.
Artists 18 years and older living and working within the United States who do not have gallery representation are welcome to apply. Artworks must be an original work produced by the artist applying and must have been completed within the last 3 years.
