Good Trouble / U Decide Exhibition (Washington, DC) – Call For Artists

Good Trouble  / U Decide Exhibition (Washington, DC) – Call For Artists

The Center for Contemporary Political Art (CCPArt) announces a call for artists for the Good Trouble / U Decide: America’s artists honor the legacy of John Lewis exhibition. CCPArt will provide words for nine issue-oriented get-out-the vote posters. You provide the powerful original art/images for one or more of the posters. Make the words come alive.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 3 Oct 2020

No fees to enter

The sponsoring organizations, CCPArt and Millennium Arts Salon are 501-(c )-(3)s located in Washington, DC. Millennium Arts Salon is the premier arts organization in Washington, DC dedicated to promoting African and African American visual art. Together, they will present the Good Trouble exhibition as a public service. Art can inform and inspire needed social and political change.

Political analysts in Washington believe that if the Russians don’t interfere too much, turn-out may decide the winner of what may be the most consequential election of our time. It’s CCPArt’s civic duty, and yours, to encourage every registered voter to actually vote in this year’s election. Use your creativity and talent to help determine the future of the United States at this difficult time in its history. If you’ve seen the signage and political posters both parties produce, you’ll understand why we think, together, we can do better. Hopefully, we’ll all benefit as a result.

A jury of experts will select the winning entries. CCPArt will print the posters from the jpegs you submit. The posters will be exhibited in Washington and online.

About The Center for Contemporary Political Art

The Center for Contemporary Political Art is the only art space in the Nation’s Capital dedicated exclusively to presenting art addressing current political issues in real time. CCPArt’s first exhibition was a juried open call show, Defining the Art of Change in the Age of Trump. It launched in September 2018, in time for that year’s mid-term elections.

In an essay written for CCPArt’s first catalog, Dorothea Dietrich, a professor of art history at Princeton before becoming chair of the department of art history and design at Pratt, compared the Defining exhibit to the First International Dada Fair in 1920 in Berlin. CCPArt can think of no higher compliment or, unfortunately, a more apt comparison.
