Repurposes - Call for Submissions

Repurposes is an exhibition that seeks to present work representing themes of reexamining and reengaging convictions or finding new uses for what’s been produced for other prospects. Instead of crafting new doctrines for how we should regard our world and ourselves, we might first rehabilitate meanings that have been lost or disfigured. We must also face the overproduction of material culture and its implications for our self and the environment. How might we employ and transform the abundant objects and imagery that already exists? In a time of historic change and challenge—politically, economically, technologically—how do we remake ourselves?

Works may address the idea of Repurposes either in their concept or their material form. Submissions of existing 2D and interactive (short QuickTime movies, Flash animations) work are welcome in addition to proposals for installation work. Submissions should be either as high-quality JPEG images or PDFs.

Curated by Kenneth FitzGerald, Associate Professor of Art, Old Dominion University, and Garland Kirkpatrick, Associate Professor of Art, Loyola Marymount University.
