Outskirts: Bodies, Places, and Identities – Call for Artists

This is an exhibition project working towards creating a place for women artists from all walks of life, diverse cultural backgrounds, and different identities of race or sexuality.

Call for artists application

Deadline: 1 Jul 2015

The main focus will be on issues and concepts in relation to the embodied experience in time and space; the hybridization between identities and cultures; and the binary constructs of gender, homosexuality vs. heterosexuality, domestic vs. public spheres, and outskirt vs. center with respect to progress, societies, social spaces and identities.

The project will showcase the works of the participating women artists in a series of solo and collaborative exhibitions. Artists are encouraged to express new ideas and experiment with various media.

tAd is a small, not-for-profit, artist-run space, established to promote contemporary art practices as a way to stimulate dialogue between visual art, culture, and society.
