Call for art

It's Time

An Uncensored Look at the Time's Up & #MeToo Movements

Deadline to Enter June 1, 2018

Juror: Anuradha Vikram, Artistic Director 18th Street Arts Center

Show Runs July 7-August 11, 2018

International call for art, all media/mediums welcome.

"Political times call for political art. The past year has shown that women's voices will not be silenced, no matter how hard the patriarchy digs in its heels. Artists have heard the call to speak up against structural violence and oppression. The urgency and candor of their work reflects that of this important cultural moment."

Anuradha Vikram is a writer, curator, and educator. Her research focus is transnational futurism, combining media studies, theory of globalization, and critical race discourse with modern and contemporary art history. Vikram has guest-curated exhibitions for the Craft and Folk Art Museum, Shulamit Nazarian Gallery, Mills College Art Museum, ProArts Gallery, and the DeYoung Museum Artist Studio, and held curatorial positions at UC Berkeley Department of Art Practice, Headlands Center for the Arts, Aicon Gallery, and Richmond Art Center. She has contributed essays to journals including Leonardo, KCET Artbound, Artillery, Hyperallergic, Daily Serving, and OPEN SPACE, the blog of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and to catalogues on the work of Sonya Rapoport, Chitra Ganesh, Ana Mendieta, and Om Prakash, among others. Vikram holds an MA in Curatorial Practice from California College of the Arts and a BS in Studio Art from New York University. She is a Senior Lecturer in the MFA Social Practice Area Emphasis at Otis College of Art and Design, and a member of the Board of Directors of the College Art Association, where she chairs the Museums Committee.
