CALL FOR ARTISTS Stamp Gallery Call for Artists Application Deadline | December 21 Notification Date | January 4 Exhibition Dates | February 13 – March 29 ABOUT THE EXHIBITION Visualizing Protest: The Art of Resistance Protests have long been a social tool by which to mobilize groups of people around shared grievances, allowing them to collectively interrogate power structures and enact change through the discursive processes of resistance. Protests have been an important moment at which resistance enters public space and gains broader visibility. Some forms of protest, such as riots, can even erupt spontaneously and result in alternative discourses that undermine the original aims of the protestors. This exhibition thus seeks to explore the role of visual production around protests. It will consider such questions as: How do we understand the relationship between what is visible/invisible or public/private in collective forms of resistance? How does artwork and new media shape, interrogate, or blur these distinctions? How does the visual response to protests and resistance movements by artists memorialize and historicize the events? Do new technologies change the nature of protests, resistance movements, and how they are mobilized? If so, how we understand them visually? What is the role of audience? What is the role of visual imagery produced by resistance groups themselves? The curator of this exhibition seeks a small group of artists working in a wide range of media whose work critically engages with and responds to ideas around resistance and protest. Work can focus on recent events within the United States as well as be historically situated or centered on other regions. Selected artwork will be exhibited in Stamp Gallery in the Adele H. Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park. ABOUT THE CURATOR Alison Singer, Stamp Gallery Coordinator, Doctoral Candidate, Art History Alison is particularly interested in Black Nationalism in the 20th century as well as the interplay between material and pop culture and its relationship to the development of national identity. From 2017-2018 she held a research fellowship at the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Her most recent exhibition at Stamp Gallery, Mirrored Re-Collection, explored the notion of home, gender, private and collective memory, and national identity.
