The State of our Shared Land

Submission Deadline: Friday, August 24, 2018, 11:59pm

Juror: Wassan Al-Khudhairi, Chief Curator CAM St. Louis

The word politics is derived from the Latin words polites “citizen” and polis “city.” Politics as a term used in everyday life first appeared in the 15th century and referred to the state and its administration of public life. For this exhibition the St. Louis Artists’ Guild is looking for works of art that examine the state of our shared environment. As a society how are we linked together through the decisions of our leaders? What is your reaction to the shifting tectonic plates of today’s political landscape? Propaganda is part of our political dialogue. Is fake news the same? Do you trust the news you receive? How are you or someone you know personally impacted by the policies and actions of government today? We are looking for all media in this exhibition including but not limited to painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, video, and performance art.
