This Halloween, we’re asking artists and performers to reimagine the theme of dis-possession and the invisible for a virtual exhibition, APPARITIONS, accepting all mediums. Coming from a diasporic perspective, dis-possession is: separation and disconnect from ancestors, heritage, land, and bodies.
The intention is this exhibit will be a collective sacred space around Halloween, a time that’s centered on ancestral rituals and being open to the intangible. Submit anything you’d like to share in this space, including time-based media, interactive media, performance art, visual and performing arts, poetry readings, and live performances. Also, while this theme is inherently diasporic and personal, the exhibit isn’t limited by a diasporic lens, so don’t let this deter you from submitting!
WHAT TO SUBMIT: 1) artist bio AND 2) documentation and description of your work or a proposal for a live performance.
KEYWORDS: (im)material, sensory, memory, haunting, (dis)embodied, (in)corporeal, vessels, portals, mediators, ancestral, intergenerational, displacement, nostalgia, past, visions
DEADLINE: October 5th by midnight to firstname.lastname@example.org
