Posted by: Texas Tech University
Deadline: Tue, May 1st, 2018
Artists everywhere are invited to submit artwork for Popwalk’s exhibition of site-specific digital art for the city of Houston, entitled Re:Houston.
Re:Houston is an exhibition about rebuilding, remembering, rejuvenating, and reinventing Houston. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the whole world saw the resilience and sacrifice of Houston. As the city works on the difficult task of arising from that disaster Re:Houston gives artists from all over the globe an opportunity to commemorate those places within this great city that they love, remember those places that have been lost or changed, and celebrate the heroism of the individuals and the city itself.
The exhibition will be displayed on the Popwalk phone application. Using Popwalk, artists will be able to exhibit their works of art in those corners of the city they want to remember. Artists and performers will be able to celebrate those specific sites within the city that that they love, commemorate the lost parts, and reimagine a better, stronger Houston. Lisa Volpe, Associate Curator of Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and Sara Kellner, Houston Arts Alliance (HAA), Director of Civic Art + Design will be serving as jurors for the exhibit.
The Talkington College of Visual and Performing Arts at Texas Tech University has given $5000 in prize money for this exhibition.
The call will open on November 1, 2017 and will be open through May 1, 2018. The exhibit will officially open in May 1, 2018 and works will be exhibited for at least 12 months from that time.
