Wilderness, an International Call for Works Exploring the Beyond / Calls & Submissions

November 10, 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 explore the space beyond human inhabitance, what we call Wilderness. This exhibit has no defined expectation for type, media, or style of work to be considered or selected.

The wilderness is a place where we are not. Cities, farms, and neighborhoods grow with or through some kind of cultivation of nature—but there are places that we have not, cannot, maybe should not bring to heel. Wilderness is where the landscape remains bigger than us, primal, and virgin. The wilderness is where our surroundings are still mysterious and powerful—the wilderness is where we can still manage to disappear.

What kind of powerful, dangerous, and uncontrolled places remain?

$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’.
