OPEN CALL FOR ENTRY
ALL ENTRIES ARE DUE BY 11:59PM, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2018
SPF South Florida is pleased to announce an open call for submissions. Pushing the Pull is an exhibition which invites artists to submit works which push the boundaries of printmaking. While print has always been rooted in a long history of innovators, contemporary processes turn the tradition on its head, introducing new digital approaches and renewing age-old techniques by printing on and with alternative materials and tools. Whether you roll it, carve it, scratch it, mask it, screen it, transfer it, multiply it or discover it; Pushing the Pull lays claim to the rich vitality of current printmakers. This exhibition will be open November 10 - December 22, 2018 in The Projects space located in FATVillage, Fort Lauderdale.
The exhibition will open in two phases. The first opening will accompany the third edition of Small Press Fair, SPF’18, on November 10, 2018 and will feature 2-D experimental prints. The second opening will be held during the FATVillage Artwalk on November 24, 2018. This opening will expand the exhibition to include large-scale sculptural and installation based work to fill the entirety of the 10,000 sq ft Projects Space warehouse.
ELIGIBILITY: Submitted work must be relevant to Printmaking with an emphasis on experimental or non-traditional approaches which may include fiber arts, sculpture, ceramics, installation and beyond. The exhibition space is 10,000 sq ft of raw open warehouse. In addition to traditional wall-hung prints, it can accomodate work 19-ft high. The space is equipped with floating walls, projectors, lighting and can accommodate ceiling-hung works. We are interested in seeing each artist's perspective on how far the boundaries of printmaking can be pushed!
