Call For Entires

UMass Dartmouth University Art Gallery in Downtown New Bedford is accepting submissions to its exhibition inspired by our perceptions of French culture. Professional artists of all media including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, sound art, video, or installation are asked to consider Paris - the idea, the reality and the fantasy. How did Paris enter our collective minds and how can we portray it? What does "Paris" represent for us? How does Paris act as America's aspirational or elegant self?  

Do you like Paris in the Springtime, the Summer, the Winter, or Fall? Is there a Paris within us? Have you read authors who talk about Paris or are you inspired by artworks associated with the city? As you travel its streets in your mind, are you wearing Chanel, Dior, and/or a beret, accompanying Audrey Tautou, or Anna Karina, Jean-Paul Belmondo, in a film by Truffaut, Godard, Varda or Woody Allen? What is it about Paris that spells love, desire, elegance, taste, or the avant-garde and freedom? Is it Paris imagined or is it real - and do we even care?

Application Deadline: Saturday, April 18, 2015
