Life Is Art Spectrum Exhibit Call for Artists Deadline August 23, 2014

Life Is Art Official Call for Artists [mi.ami][inter.play] Booth at Spectrum Miami!

spectrumlastcall14

READ CAREFULLY BEFORE APPLYING

Life Is Art [mi.ami][inter.play] Booth SPECTRUM Miami has provided Life Is Art with a donated booth in which to feature Miami and South Florida artists. The focus of [mi.ami][inter.play] is collaboration – between artists, between the arts and the community, and between Miami and the Art World at large. Works are encouraged to be collaborative creations with two or more artists, but are not required to be so. Works may be in any of the visual mediums.

This is a juried show with an open call for artists. Any artist living or working in south Florida may apply. Preference is given to collaborative works, but individual works are also welcome. We are also encouraging 3D and multi-media works. A small application fee is assessed to cover the costs of processing. All work must be for sale. Life Is Art is taking no commission, but a small sales commission will be paid to the booth staff. There is no hanging fee.

The theme of the works should be that interplay between art and community, the congruence, how art tells the story of the people and their life, how the community thrives on that art. Conversely, it can speak to how art is disruptive, how it breaks the community, exposing holes in its soul. Artists are free to create their own interpretation of that theme, but make it speak to how art and culture are the soul of any society.

From Suffolk University, Boston, MA: Call for Artsts for Widening the Cycle: A Menstruation & Reproductive Justice Art Show Deadline November 1, 2014

Okay, this is a really interesting call from Boston. So cool that the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research is looking for some themed art, so definitely check it out!
- – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - -

Name of the show: Widening the Cycle: A Menstruation & Reproductive Justice Art Show
Organizer: Society for Menstrual Cycle Research
Cost to Apply: $0
Submission Deadline: November 1, 2014
Application link

Show Location: Suffolk University, Boston, MA
Show Dates: June 4 – 7, 2015

Call details: Event Co-Sponsors, the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research (SMCR) and the Center for Women’s Health & Human Rights (CWHHR), seek visual art to enrich and further strengthen the multidisciplinary focus of the upcoming conference Menstrual Health and Reproductive Justice: Human Rights across the Lifespan. Art has the ability to challenge society’s deepest assumptions by sparking new ideas, catalyzing critical thinking, and inspiring individuals to take steps in new directions that facilitate social change. “Widening the Cycle” will explore visual art’s ability to alter social perceptions and reactions to menstruation with a particular interest in art created using menstrual fluid.

Some possible menstrual connections for creative exploration:

• Shame, Secrecy & Silence
• Popular Culture
• Social Media
• Consumerism
• Identity & Meaning Making
• Hormone Therapies & Birth Control
• Reproductive Aging
• Trauma
• Humor
• LGBTQ Issues / Queer Studies
• Race Issues
• Cancer & Other Diseases
• Disability Issues
• Native / Indigenous Studies
• Humanitarian Emergencies
• Sexuality
• Fertility
• Body Issues

About Menstrual Health, Reproductive Justice and Human Rights
Menstrual-ovulatory health is central to women’s ability to lead lives of dignity and health in every society in every part of the world. In fact, menstrual-ovulatory health and menstrual education are the foundations for more widely acknowledged reproductive rights, such as the right to plan the number and spacing of our children, the right to sex education, and the right to sexual autonomy and pleasure. Menstrual health and menstrual education also facilitate other women’s rights globally, such as the right to education. Without menstrual-ovulatory health in place for all women, other women’s rights remain in jeopardy. Yet menstrual health is rarely recognized or theorized as a reproductive justice issue. Nor is it often respected, protected, or fulfilled as a human right.

The Reproductive Justice framework analyzes how the ability of any woman to determine her own reproductive destiny is linked directly to the conditions in her community – and these conditions are not just a matter of individual choice and access. Reproductive Justice addresses the social reality of inequality, specifically, the inequality of opportunities that we have to control our reproductive destiny. Our options for making choices have to be safe, affordable and accessible, three minimal cornerstones of government support for all individual life decisions.
When those interested in the menstrual cycle use reproductive justice and human rights frames, we see more clearly the social and institutional structures that constrain women’s and girls’ fundamental right to self-determination and bodily integrity. When reproductive justice advocates include menstrual health in visions of social justice, we create a fuller picture of, and more effective strategies for, women’s empowerment and well being across the lifespan.

About the Sponsors
Founded in 1979, the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research (SMCR) is an interdisciplinary group of researchers, health care providers, policy makers, and students who share an interest in women’s lives and health needs as they are related to the menstrual cycle. Founded in 2003, the Center for Women’s Health & Human Rights (CWHHR) is the first academic institute in the United States to focus on women’s health and human rights in the social sciences, arts and humanities, and public policy.

Eligibility Criteria
We seek broad interpretations of this call from a wide variety of multicultural perspectives and personal experiences. This call for art is open to all self-defining female artists and collaborations comprised of at least 50% female membership working in 2D art of all media (collage, cross-stitch, illustration, painting, photography, printmaking, etc.) with a special interest in art created using menstrual fluid. Complete works must be finished (dry, no wet paint), framed and no larger than 36 inches wide by 42 inches high (36” x 42”) in size.
