International Deadline: June 27, 2014 - Highly regarded Manifest Creative Research Gallery announces the '6th Nude", an international competitive exhibit exploring the uncovered human form in current art. Open to all artists. Professionals as well as students are encouraged to enter. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works of art.
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional genre (abstract, conceptual, highly realistic, etc.), and media, including photography, mixed media, video, etc. All works must in some way involve, represent, or explore the nude human form.
Manifest exhibits many kinds of works, from more conceptual and experimental art to the traditional. In fact we think it's important to have such a range in our repertoire. It is something that Manifest is known for. Our annual projects allow us the chance to track how artists around the world address a consistent theme, subject, or media over time, or allow us to document the state of art in a particular strata of professional creative activity, and to study and preserve our findings in a meaningful way through our exhibit catalogs and website.
NUDE is one such project. The human body is a popular subject for many reasons, the most obvious being that it is us. Throughout history the representation of the human form has been charged with tremendous energy, both positive and negative. Whether it be a religious edict that one 'shalt 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. We use the human nude to master skill, understand ourselves, and push social and psychological buttons for the sake of expression (sensual, delicate, aggressive, and so on). We intend for Manifest's ongoing annual NUDE project to explore how our collective body is used today in art to achieve these goals and more.
JURY & CURATOR
Manifest's selection process involves a complex two-part system. This exhibit will be juried by an anonymous 5-9 member panel of professional and academic advisers with a broad range of expertise. The jury will then pass along their recommendations to the exhibit curator who will make the final selections from the jury-approved pool.
Manifest Press will produce a high quality hard-cover publication documenting this exhibition, artists, and works shown, along the other new season exhibitions.
Each work submitted must be accompanied by a $12 non-refundable entry fee. Number of entries is not limited.
