Selected artworks will lean into the complexity of what is considered domestic and offer a nuanced interpretation of the concept. Work in all media is welcome for consideration, and selections will be made based on the applicability to the theme as well as the group of pieces that work best as a whole. Submissions are limited to works with a maximum dimension of 72”.

SAM is pleased to welcome 2024 juror Cesar Cornejo, Associate Professor of Fine Art at the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds, United Kingdon.
