An Exhibition of Cinema Inspired Art
September 16th, 2015 - November 12th, 2015
Deadline: Monday, August 29th, 11:59pm, 2016
Submission fee: none
Last year we continued our ongoing series of exhibitions designed around cinema as a translated medium. The exhibition, Cinema 06, surpassed our expectations in terms of quality and diversity of the submissions. It was exciting to see how various artists incorporated cinema into their work, whether referencing specific films, genres or cinematic process itself. After the final selections were made, the exhibition consisted of work by 17 artists from 8 cities in 3 countries* and was very well received by the thousands who viewed the work in the gallery and online.
This year, we continue with Cinema 05. We look forward to another great round of submissions.
*Cleveland, OH; Detroit, MI; Chicago, IL; Salisbury, MD; Mishawaka, IN; Seattle, WA; Toronto, Canada; London, UK
All pieces should reference cinema in some way. Work may reference a specific film, director, director's body of work, film genre or movement, etc. Work may also reference cinematic process or the visual language of cinema.
There are no specific size requirements, but anything overly large or small (over six feet/under ten inches) may limit the appeal of the piece in the exhibition.
The most important guideline for submissions is quality. Pieces should tilt toward the fine art end of the spectrum. Please visit the Previous Exhibitions section of our website (http://kennethpaullesko.com/Previous-Exhibitions.htm) to get a sense of our aesthetic.
The exhibition records for Cinema 01 (http://kennethpaullesko.com/Exhibitions/Cinema-01/Cinema-01.htm), Cinema 02 (http://kennethpaullesko.com/Exhibitions/Cinema-02/Cinema-02.htm), Cinema 03 (http://kennethpaullesko.com/Exhibitions/Cinema-03/Cinema-03.htm), Cinema 04 (http://kennethpaullesko.com/Exhibitions/Cinema-04/Cinema-04.htm),Cinema 05 (http://kennethpaullesko.com/Exhibitions/Cinema-05/Cinema-05.htm), and Cinema 06 (http://www.kennethpaullesko.com/Exhibitions/Cinema-06/Cinema-06.htm) should also prove to be a valuable resource.
All pieces should be ready to hang/display (no sawtooth hangers please). Works on paper and photography should be framed behind glass or plexiglass, unless an alternate presentation is contextual to the piece.
Email images (preferably jpgs), with dimensions, medium, title and artist's contact information to email@example.com. Please include "Your Name--Cinema 07 Submission" in the subject. There are no specific requirements concerning resolution, though anything under three megapixels may limit the ability to enlarge details. You may enter up to five pieces. There is no charge for submissions.
These guidelines are meant to be flexible. Painting, sculpture, photography and installation will all be considered. Submissions are fairly open-ended, if you have a piece that doesn't fall into the described parameters (a drawing or print, etc.), but you think it works with the exhibition, send us an email. Similarly, if you have any questions concerning subject matter, or would like feedback on a piece, or an idea for a piece, just send us an email.
Deadline for submissions is Sunday, August 28th, 11:59pm. Accepted artists will be notified on or before August 31st. Pieces must be shipped to arrive no later than September 12th.
