Cut: An International Call for Works Made by Cutting / Calls & Submissions

June 24, 2021

Organization Name: Manifest Creative Research Gallery

Organization Location: Cincinnati, OH

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: $40+


The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit works that address or feature cutting as a primary and dominant, but not necessarily exclusive method of creation. All manner of interpretations and explorations involving the concept or examples of cutting are welcome, including traditional and non-traditional approaches in any media.

Scissors, knife, saw, laser, CNC router, water… these and more may be used to cut materials to form useful, beautiful, or meaningful things, by design and artfulness. To cut is to take a simple action that may, as if by magic, turn one thing into two, many into more—or alternatively to reduce by elimination parts of a whole to achieve a different, better whole. Too many cuts leaves one with only waste. Just the right number result in, perchance, a miracle—art.

ANNUAL CASH AWARD: The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($2500) to a single work selected as the ‘best of the entire season’.
