Call for Entries

I am going to curate a show which will be up on February 2010, and here is the call for entries.

I would like to have works of art that deal with personal narratives.

Please please contact me if you are interested in participating!! I would like to have many submissions!!

We and Stories


This exhibition will show contemporary art work that deals with personal narratives. Investigating how artists represent / tell / transform the personal narrative through their work, examining the dynamics of their approaches and the notion of the personal and the universal. How can one’s personal story impact others? How can visual art function to deliver the personal into universal? How is storytelling important to each artist and is their process visible in the finished work of art?


The exhibition will be in February 2010 at the 6th Floor Printmaking Gallery, Anderson Hall, at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
