THE ELASTIC MIND
The South Gallery, located on Broward College South Campus, will be hosting an art exhibition entitled The Elastic Mind in late Spring 2023. This exhibition will showcase digital and video artworks by artists from around the globe.
Artists are invited and encouraged to submit new or existing digital art , photography and video works which creatively address and/ or relate to the show’s theme and concept.
The Elastic Mind refers to the psychological term which notes the ability to think non-linearly and be fluid to survive in times of rapid change and uncertainty. In other words, to “have the capacity to let go of comfortable ideas and become accustomed to ambiguity and contradiction, the capability to rise above conventional mindsets and reframe the questions we ask, the ability to abandon our ingrained assumptions and open ourselves to new paradigm, the propensity to rely on imagination as much as on logic and to generate and integrate a wide variety of ideas, and the willingness to experiment and be tolerant of failure.” (Mlodinow, 2018)
We will accept submissions until September 30th, 2022. Artists can submit up to 6 works for consideration. All submissions will be considered. Artworks must be original, and all music or images used should be copyright free or have rights purchased by artist, if needed.
Artists should email Kohl King at email@example.com with:
1. The title of work and date created
2. A direct secure link of work to be considered (google drive, website, vimeo, etc) .
3. Attach CV and short Bio, please include all contact information
4. Attach artist statement
There is no fee to apply. There is no limitation on when the artwork was created as long as it follows all the other guidelines and adheres to the theme.
