Call for art

Drama: Story-Telling in Art


Entry deadline: December 29, 2021 

Notification of accepted entries: January 9, 2022

Exhibition February 5-March 19, 2022


Juror: Ziying Duan, Assistant curator Orange County Museum of Art

 

We don’t like drama in our personal lives --- but we demand it from art.  Narrative is king again after a long period of critical banishment. Telling stories is what artists do now. Art has become melodramatic, competing for attention in a media-saturated society. Personal, political, and social issues are often approached through storytelling, as documentary or confession. Down through the centuries, the stories told in art have sustained humanity’s spirit. The exhibition will discover parallels between worlds we live in --- and worlds we can only imagine.
