Side x Side Contemporary is pleased to announce it’s first open call for an online juried group exhibition, So Close. So Close refers to a state of unity, of being united or joined together, but also to the idea of a near miss, the almost, and not-quite-there. We are interested in seeing work interpreting various states of closeness or absence and offer a moment to investigate expectation, proximity, intimacy, vacancy, and omission.

We invite artists to interpret this theme in relationship to space, process, representation, or material. We are asking artists to have their own interpretation and submit works that can address the theme of the exhibition formally and/or conceptually.

This is an international online juried group exhibition and artists from around the world are invited to submit their works in any media including photography, drawing, sculpture, new media, printmaking, ceramics, fiber art, painting, collage, mixed media, installation art, video art, performance, etc. Selected artists’ works will be featured on our website and social media page and their works will be highlighted during the weeks of the exhibition.

Application deadline: June 4, 2020
