Expired: ECLECTICA PRINT GALLERY ART COMPETITION

AT PRINT

Deadline

30 April 2019

Opportunity Description

Exhibition Title:
Fundamentalist Rationalism
Nothing is what it seems
Relate the title to “Zeno’s Paradox”

Printmakers are welcome to respond to the philosophical, psychological, political, emotional and aesthetic dimensions of ideas surrounding infinity, paradox, illusion, post-modern diversity and instability. If it is true to say that many artists use art to better grasp reality or at least hint at its ineffability, then envisage and imagine and transcribe as printmakers your ideas concerning the complexity, difficulty and perhaps beauty that the play and struggle of nature/self/culture inevitably gives rise to.
