Call for Artists / Annual Black Artists of DC (BADC) Exhibit at District of Columbia Arts Center (DCAC)

FOCUS GROUP: Four Walls, Four Women, One Show is the theme for the 2010 annual exhibit sponsored by BADC and DCAC. This call for artists is open to female artists working in all media; its deadline for submission is Monday, August 30, 2010. The exhibition will run November 19, 2010 through January 9, 2011.

As stated in their announcement, "The Black Artists of DC is seeking to spark a visual discussion between artworks created by Black women, and a verbal dialogue between those that view and purchase them. The topic of discussion is material. What are you using? What materials do you feel yourself drawn to? And how does Black femininity affect or reflect itself in the materials you choose, if at all? How does femininity affect the delivery and/or reception of your message? What emotional relationship do you form with the objects and substances used to build your works?

In this exhibition, the voices of women artists will be spoken primarily in material form. Purposefully, only four artists will be selected to participate, in order to strengthen an intimate focus on each individual voice. From both visual and verbal discussion, we hope to determine how effectively our material languages are deciphered, valued, appreciated, or acquired by a universal audience and market."
