San Francisco, CA,
USA United States of America
Composting Good and Evil: Redesign for Sanctimonious Sinners. A virtual exhibition open to all artists. What would happen if we tossed our smug habits into a heap? What if we composted our shameless sins, our saintly intentions and our fertile imaginations and pledged to use the resulting fecund glory to redesign and nurture the world? Imagine the change that could grow from a pile of temptation, convenience, guilt, hope and inspiration! Join this collaborative effort to transform your compost of good and evil into art for an earthshaking exhibition.
Using any of the following words as a guide, show us a piece of your (recycled) mind and (reprogrammed) heart. Reflect, reform, reconsider, resolve, relate, revise, rework, renew, repair, repurpose, reconnect, review, regret, renounce, reproach, react, rethink, reuse, reduce and recycle.
Ethical Metalsmiths will feature the exhibition on its Web site beginning March 15, 2008 for an extended period of time. The exhibition will premiere on the campus of the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia, on Friday, March 7, 2008, during the Society of North American Goldsmiths annual conference. Digital images will be viewed on an outdoor, billboard-size, high resolution LED display.
You can work small or big, but we must have a high quality digital image. Submissions that are consistent with the theme and purpose and meet the image requirements will be included. The use of recycled and repurposed materials is encouraged, but not mandatory.
The deadline for entries is February 10, 2008.
Details are available online at www.EthicalMetalsmiths.org
