Informational Prospectus and Call for Entries
ARC GALLERY AND EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION is a non-profit, woman-run cooperative gallery dedicated to providing alternative space exhibition opportunities for innovative artists outside the commercial gallery system. Since 1973, ARC has given exposure and support to both men and women artists, providing an atmosphere for the continued development of artistic potential and experimentation.
In late June 2016, ARC will present “It Figures: The Body in Art”
The exhibition “It Figures” is a contemporary examination of the human figure, historically a major focus of artists. All societies have created their own concepts for how to portray the human body. These concepts are reflected and challenged in artists’ representation of the human figure. ARC looks to examine contemporary society’s and artists’ views of the human body in all of its manifestations.
All mediums and materials are eligible including video and performance for submission. In order to be considered, the artwork submitted must include human figurative aspects. Due to space limitations no projections or media-based installations will be accepted.
