I saw a call for entry at nefarious contemporary in Baltimore on Instagram:
Our February exhibition is now open for entries! BO/DY was thought up as I and many of my beloved friends have experienced extreme body trauma and abuse in our lifetimes. The body is something we shame, we neglect, we criticize, we oh-too-closely compare to other bodies. In a time of revolution, such as the one we find ourselves in the midst of, the body is starting to receive more love than it has in a long, long time. And we want to celebrate that. This exhibition will open on St Valentine’s Day and serve as an online and zine exhibition. Which means that each applicant, regardless of their acceptance, will receive a complimentary zine once it’s published. Tag some of your favorite artists below working within themes of body to let them know they should apply! And feel free to shoot us over any q’s you may have!
This exhibition is US only due to funding restrictions.
My girlfriend and I were experimenting with cyanotypes, and I made this.
As a kid, I was always self conscious of my weird, awkward ehlers–danlos syndrome-ish body, especially my feet. Well, NO LONGER! I learned to….
