Walk With Us: Call for Artist Submissions

Walk With Us: Call for Artist Submissions

Tuesday, October 5, 2021

John Schuerman (KHN alum 2018) shared a call for artist submissions for the Rochester Art Center's 2022 exhibition, Walk With Us. Jurors Zoe Cinel and John Schuerman (curators, as well as artists with walking-based artistic practices) will select 12 to 15 artists whose walking projects expand our ideas about art, place, mapping, culture, inner and outer experience, and which generally honor the simple act of walking. (Note: Walking substitute entries welcomed from artists with walking disability.)

The jurors will place equal weight on concepts and aesthetics, as well as consider installation flexibility. Three submissions will be selected for Cash Awards in the amount of $200, $300, and $500.

"If you make walking-based artwork, or want to try your feet at it, we want to hear from you! We are interested in all types of walking art – documentary, performative, abstracted translations, etc. – and open to all forms of media, including drawing, video, photography, etc. within the size limitations of 50×50” for 2D artworks and 30x30x50h” for 3D artworks."

The Walk With Us exhibition and programming will run April 30 to October 2nd, 2022.

Submissions are due by November 15th, 2021
