TOUCH, A Virtual Exhibition at Woman Made Gallery

Woman Made Gallery - Touch virtual exhibition

TOUCH, A Virtual Exhibition

Juror/Curator: Gina Lee Robbins
June 5–30, 2020
Facebook Live Opening: Saturday, June 13 | 2–3 p.m.

CHICAGO ––
Inspired by the current pandemic, this exhibition looks at something that many of us have had to completely do without: TOUCH. Most of the world is under order to shelter in place, practice social distancing, stay 6 feet away from each other. This is particularly punishing given that the tactile is such an integral part of the way we develop human relationships. In fact, our use of the word “touch” in English has long referred to how we stay connected–even from a distance.

In curating the 430 entries, Gina Lee Robbins looked for very specific personal responses to the theme. She began to see touch as its own complex language. Robbins selected works that convey the myriad ways we use touch to communicate with ourselves, others and the world around us, and how we respond emotionally to its presence or absence. Among these are representations of comfort, healing, tenderness, love, control, pain, fear, grief and loss.

In her photograph “Panic” Maha Alasaker from Kuwait expresses her anxiety: ” My heart is racing. I can’t catch my breath. I’m going to be sick. I try to focus, but the panic is hard to fight. I can’t think, the manic pace of my thoughts race across the landscape of my consciousness. Numbness creeps over my body as though my soul and body are out of harmony. I know the signs. It’s coming. Having anxiety and being in a defined space, doesn’t help… But we are all in it .. and I keep reminding myself of that.”

TOUCH Call for Art from Woman Made Gallery

TOUCH, A Virtual Exhibition
Exhibition Opens: June 5, 2020
Entry Due Date: May 9, 2020
Notification: May 16, 2020Curator/Juror: Gina Lee Robbins

CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT WORK. 
https://womanmadegallery.submittable.com/submit

(One artwork from each submission is guaranteed to be included.)

Exhibition Description: Inspired by the current pandemic, this exhibition looks at something that many of us have had to completely do without: TOUCH. Most of the world is under order to shelter in place, practice social distancing, stay 6 feet away from each other. This is particularly punishing given that the tactile is such an integral part of the way we develop human relationships. In fact, our use of the word “touch” in English has long referred to how we stay connected–even from a distance. What does it mean to touch another? How does restricting our ability to touch a friend, a lover or even a stranger affect our well-being? When social restrictions are lifted, will the ways and ease with which we touch one another change?

Open to women-identified and non-binary artists from the local, national, and international community, Woman Made Gallery is inviting artwork in any media that explores the concept of touch. This will be an on-line only exhibition, viewable on Woman Made Gallery’s website and social media channels.

All entries should include a brief theme-related statement (max. 200 words.) There is no restriction in the creation date. Accepted artworks must not have been previously shown at WMG. The application fee for this online exhibition is $20 for up to three images of work, plus one detail image per piece if necessary. Commission to WMG for sold art for this virtual exhibition is 20%. One artwork from each submission is guaranteed to be included.

A limited number of artists who experience financial hardship may be exempt from paying the entry fee; please send us an email to request a fee waiver: [email protected] For questions contact: [email protected]

Juror/Curator: Gina Lee Robbins is a visual and teaching artist who creates sculptural objects in clay and found materials. Largely self-taught, she has been working with ceramics for over 30 years. Her work has been exhibited in solo, invitational and juried group shows and competitions throughout the United States. Her sculptures are part of private and corporate collections worldwide. https://www.ginaleerobbins.com/
