CALL FOR ARTISTS: Some Place Like Home
May 21 @ 12:00 AM - July 10 @ 4:00 PM
SOME PLACE LIKE HOME
A Call for Art on Home and Displacement
Avenue 50 Studio is accepting submissions for our August show titled ‘Some Place Like Home,’ curated by Yeu Q Nguyen.
We live in a world where nearly 1 person is forcibly displaced every two-seconds. According to the UN Refugee Agency, 68.5 million people around the world have been forced from their home as a result of conflict or persecution, and 143 million people may soon become climate migrants. In wealthier urban areas, gentrification, increasing debt, and lack of housing affordability fuel the rate of homelessness. 50,000 people are experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles alone, and a typical American moves over 11 times in their lifetime for social economic reasons. Some Place Like Home invites artists to submit work inspired and related to the themes of home and displacement. We are particularly interested in narrative works reflecting current or historical events.
Open to all artists age 18 and older.
All fine arts visual media will be considered. Unfortunately, because of size limitations of gallery no large sculptural pieces. No works over 36” x 48”.
