CALL FOR ART!

FUTURISM:  Art in the Age of Post Truth

This regional call for art is a follow-up to the 2016 DADA Soiree presented by C3Lab.  The theme “Futurism” could inspire references to the artists and architects of the revolutionary Italian art movement in the early 1900s who were fascinated by the problems of representing modern experience. Futurism celebrated advanced technology and urban modernity; it was committed to the idea of newness, and as part of this agenda its members wished to destroy older forms of culture.

Artists today might find parallels in our current situation, where radical ideologies are seeking to destroy established concepts of truth, objectivity, evidence, justice, and scientific rigor.

Opening Reception is Friday, November 10th from 7 to 10pm.  Exhibit will run through October 27th.
