Cladogram International Juried Biennial (Katonah, NY) – Call For Artists

Cladogram International Juried Biennial (Katonah, NY) – Call For Artists

The Katonah Museum of Art (KMA) invites submissions for Cladogram: KMA International Juried Biennial, June 28 to October 4, 2020, juried by Yasmeen Siddiqui. The KMA presents exhibitions that explore ideas about art, culture, and society – past and present – through innovative exhibition and education programs. Cladogram: KMA International Juried Biennial presents an opportunity for works from artists based locally, regionally, and globally to be brought together to explore their relationships with history and each other.

Deadline: 3 Apr 2020

The museum supports contemporary and emerging artists in ambitious new endeavors. In previous years, the Biennial has drawn submissions from around the world, and visitors from around the country and beyond. In the process of organizing this exhibition, the KMA hopes to build an international network of artists, an intellectual community dedicated to exploring the past, present, and future of art.

For the 2020 juried exhibition, the KMA invites submissions from visual artists, sound artists, book artists, craft-based artists, poets, and authors interested in the idea and form of the archive. The goal is to present a broad range of contemporary work that addresses the ways historical objects and ideas are organized and categorized. This call for submission asks:

  • What can be achieved or expressed when historical materials (documents and objects) ground contemporary art practice?
  • How can historical objects be used to upend preconceived ideas about the history of art, regardless from which part of the world it originates?

Cladogram Juror

The exhibition will be juried by Yasmeen Siddiqui, author and founding director of Minerva Projects, whose objective is to support interdisciplinary artists who have expressed the desire to analyze their practice, and where curatorial ideas are tested in service to publishing books. In tandem with this work, Siddiqui writes and edits, having her work published in Hyperallergic, ART PAPERS, Cairo Times, Medina Magazine, Flash Art, Modern Painters, NKA and The Brooklyn Rail.

Current projects include a book length manuscript on the subject of home and a series of essays considering authoritarianism through the works of artists and authors. She is also co-editing the anthology The Storytellers of Art Histories (Intellect Books, 2021). Siddiqui is a core faculty member at the School of Visual Art at Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, New York, and the Master of Arts in Critical Craft Studies at Warren Wilson College in Asheville, North Carolina.

Cladogram Participant Benefits

Chosen artists will have the opportunity to show their work in a institution that celebrates the transformative power of creative thinking while striving to meet the needs of its diverse audiences through considered and accessible curation.

About Katonah Museum of Art

Accredited by the American Association of Museums, the Katonah Museum of Art originates three to four exhibitions annually, covering a broad range of art and humanities topics. From the beginning, the KMA was committed to presenting exceptional art from all cultures and time periods. The founders’ decision to be a non-collecting institution resulted in a dynamic and flexible exhibition program, which remains one of the most distinctive features of the KMA.

The KMA offers lectures, films, workshops, and concerts for a general audience. It presents innovative and substantive programs for over 100 member schools. The Learning Center is the only interactive space in Westchester County where children can come on a daily basis to explore and create art. Outreach programs for the local Hispanic immigrant population are at the forefront of community-based education programs.

The KMA works intensively with schools and service organizations to develop literacy and assimilation skills among this population. Annual attendance is approximately 25,000 people.
