NUDE: Exploring the Uncovered Human Form / Calls & Submissions
June 25, 2021
Organization Name: Manifest Creative Research Gallery
Organization Location: Cincinnati, OH
Type: Calls & Submissions
The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit works in any media, of any style or genre (abstract, conceptual, realistic, etc.), and of any size, for consideration in Manifest’s 13th annual NUDE, an international competitive exhibit exploring the uncovered human form in current art.
The human body is a popular subject for many reasons, the most obvious being that it is us. Throughout history (and pre-history) the representation of the human form has been charged with tremendous energy. Whether it be a religious edict that one should not depict the human form—a taboo, or the glorious opposite—a revelation of mastery over form in the crafting of sensuous and life-like physical human beauty, the art of the body has nevertheless moved us through time. Through all the permutations art has experienced across history, work of the body persists.
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’.
