The Space Of Hope: A Collective Response
June 7 2021 - September 18 2021
The title of this exhibition is taken from a quote by author Rebecca Solnit: “We don’t know what is going to happen, or how, or when, and that very uncertainty is the space of hope.”
Rather than focus on the devastation wrought by the intertwined processes of industrialization, extraction, climate change, cultural displacement, and colonization, this juried group exhibition will imagine solutions and amplify voices that serve as a counter-narrative to the historical power structures that are inherent with extraction. MAM invites feminist approaches, Indigenous voices, and underrepresented viewpoints. Artists are encouraged to submit works that focus on healing, reparations, nurturing, cooperation, unity, and problem-solving as a global society.
The exhibition is open to artists of all genders and backgrounds, working in any fine art or craft medium. Submissions can be for single- or multimedia projects by solo or collaborative practitioners. Submissions of up to three works to be considered are due April 2, 2021, with notification by April 30, 2021, and work due at MAM on May 28, 2021. Selected artists will receive an exhibition honorarium, as well as support for shipping and transit. MAM is grateful for project support from the Cultural Vision Fund. Submissions will be open via Submittable (link forthcoming).
