International Deadline: February 28, 2014 - Highly regarded Manifest Creative Research Gallery announces 'Kingdom', an international exhibition exploring the animal in art.
Images of animals in art have existed parallel to those of humans for as long as images (and objects) have been made by people. Our social, creative, and psychological evolution is inextricably tied to our relationships with animals. Whether it be the taming of the wolf, resulting in 'man's best friend', the tethering of the horse which magnified the power and geographic reach of humans, or the domestication of herd animals which contributed to the establishment of cities and large concentrations of people (and the growth of culture), they are all part of the trajectory of humanity to this point in time. All have been documented, explored, and deified throughout the long process by images and objects featuring animals.
But this isn't just history (and pre-history). The animal remains a powerful subject in contemporary art. So Manifest has chosen once again to feature an exhibit which will reveal the state of the animal in contemporary art. With this we call for artists working in any media to submit works that in some way feature or address animals, real or imagined.
This exhibit has no predefined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual or experimental. The only criteria beyond excellent quality is that works must somehow address or feature the animal as primary subject, form, or content.
Kingdom is open to everyone. Professionals as well as students are encouraged to enter. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works which in some way address or feature the animal as primary subject, form, or content.
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts media.
Manifest's carefully assembled juries change from project to project, and have no collective predisposition towards any particular kind or style of art.
Manifest Press will produce a high quality hard-cover publication documenting this exhibition, artists, and works shown, along the other new season exhibitions. This continues Manifest's commitment to documentation and dissemination of our projects, and the expansion of physical exhibits into a broader geography and timeframe.
Each work submitted must be accompanied by a $12 non-refundable entry fee.

Works will be insured while on gallery premises.
