down low: Art Experienced Below Eye Level / Calls & Submissions

April 1, 2023

Organization Name: Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center

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 engage with the floor, the wall below 60”, or anywhere in the space below our eye level. Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media.

In the era of the salon, the coveted place for display was at eye level, where the viewer could regard an artwork with no stooping or straining. Eye level is the standard place to hang an artwork, and yet there is a vast amount of gallery space above and below this that we have an opportunity to engage.
What kind of artwork lives in the space below our eyes?

$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.
ANNUAL CASH AWARD: The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($5000) to a single work selected as the ‘best of the entire season’.
