Parsons Fine Arts Alum Issues Open Call for AiOP Show

Parsons MFA Fine Arts Alum Bridget Moreen Leslie is the exhibition coordinator and press contact for Art in Odd Places (AiOP) 2018: BODY. This show is now accepting submissions via open call.

AiOP 2018: BODY is the 14th iteration of this annual public art exhibition. Curated by Katya Grokhovsky, BODY will explore agency, politics, and the status of the Other in urban spaces. Selected artists will challenge notions and constructs of gender, age, beauty, contemporary ideas of self, death, sex, viscera, health, Otherness, body iamge, language, memory, and belonging. Works will present as multimedia interdisciplinary projects, movement and participatory works, artifacts, and ephemera that resist categorization and investigate issues of exclusion, displacement, and absence.

This open call is available to all disciplines. Deadline to submit is May 1, 2018.

The show is slated to run October 11-14 along 14th Street in Manhattan and October 4-27 at Westbeth Gallery.
