Race and Place Social Justice Art Show: Movement, Space, Land and Power

We want art submissions!  The Institute for Justice Education and Transformation (IJET)’s theme for the 2012-13 academic year is “Race and Place: Movement, Space, Land, and Power.” On Thursday, September 6, 6-8pm in Red Gym Second Floor, IJET kicks off with a social justice art show and involvement fair. 

For the art show, we solicit 2-D and 3-D visual art as well as performance pieces that explore the theme of “Race and Place: Movement, Space, Land, and Power” for installation from September 6 through September 30 in the Red Gym Gallery (second floor).  The Gallery Opening Reception and Social Justice Involvement Fair will be held on Thursday, September 6th from 6-8pm in the MSC and the Class of 1973 Art Gallery (2nd Floor Red Gym).  The Art Show will run through September 30th. Submission Deadline: August 10.

To submit, e-mail the following to Cynthia Lin (clin@studentlife.wisc.edu):

  • Name, e-mail address
  • Title of pieces and a brief statement of how the piece connects to our IJET theme
  • Digital images of your work(s), media used, and dimensions (for performance pieces, please include a description of proposed piece, media used, and if possible/relevant, a recording of your work

Check out our program from last year’s show (Faith or Justice?: Ironies, Inequalities and Ideologies) to get an idea of the variety of artists and works represented in our show! We also need help with selecting pieces for the show and also with gallery installation during the first week of September. Please get in touch with us if you’re interested in volunteering in either capacity!
