ARTIST CALL: Heroines, Heroes, & Superheroes

Super HeroThis show is an experiment in rapid crowdsource curation. The show itself will run in the gallery for the entire month of April, 2018, and will consist primarily of a series of digital images, sequenced, projected, and displayed electronically on screens in the gallery.

REQUIREMENTS: Images chosen for the show must portray at least one individual entity as a heroine, hero, or superhero. The concept can be shown by a well-known figure, or a person or other entity that very few people know. They can be mythological, fictional, or real. They can be human or other. Images can be photographs, paintings, drawings, sculptures, other 3-dimensional objects, or photographs of any of the former. All images must be used with proper rights and permissions. Anything that does not follow copyright laws will not be accepted. The basic concept is intended to be broadly interpreted, with opportunity for people to think about what the concept of a hero looks like.

We will accept submissions from anyone who wants to participate in this project. Since the format is primarily digital imagery we are not limited in the number of submissions we can accommodate. Each image submitted for the show must include the following information:

  • Name or other identification of the heroine, hero, or superhero, i.e. “Batman,” or “Jane Doe.” This name will be displayed alongside the image during the show.
  • Name of the person submitting the image.
  • Attribution and copyright information.
  • [optional] 1-2 paragraphs of text relevant to the image.

Submissions can be made by filling out the form below and uploading file(s) to the link below, or by providing a link to the photo online.

Upload files here. Upload a single file that includes your name in the file name. If you want to upload multiple files, create a folder with your name to post the files into.

There is no revenue stream for this show, so we will not be able to compensate anyone submitting images to the show financially. The show may be converted into an online exhibit after its run in the gallery is over.
