Barrett Art Center seeks artwork submissions that explore gender’s place in contemporary art and culture. We welcome works that engage with aesthetics of “feminine” and “masculine” representation as well as works that explore gender beyond the binary to usher in fluid and inclusive expressions of identity. Likewise, we invite artworks that situate gender within its complex intersections with race, class, and sexuality.
A wide range of media and genres are welcome, including, but not limited to, painting, drawing, collage, photography, printmaking, digital media, ceramics, textiles, video, and installation works.
