CALL FOR ARTWORK BY TRANSGENDER AND GENDER VARIANT ARTISTS
DEADLINE: APRIL 30, 2007
Fresh Meat Productions is currently accepting submissions for our 4th Annual Fresh Meat in the Gallery transgender visual art exhibition (June 2 - July 6, 2007).
This year's exhibition, BORDERS, asks transgender artists to explore the impact of borders on their lives, bodies and communities. We welcome artwork that investigates and challenges BORDERS as barriers, liberation, privilege or exclusion. Who/what do borders protect and who/what is kept out? How do borders function to create and divide nations, communities and identities? How do borders deny participation, inclusion, and visibility? Do borders offer community and at what cost? Who is celebrated? Who is unwelcome?
Fresh Meat in the Gallery is an annual exhibition of visual art by transgender and gender variant artists. We seek to empower artists, expand the repertoire of original work authentically exploring transgender experience, bring visibility to trans communities, connect transgender artists with diverse audiences, create dialogue and build community.
Part of the National Queer Arts Festival, Fresh Meat in the Gallery accompanies Fresh Meat 2007, the 6th annual festival of transgender and queer performance (June 14-16 at ODC Theater in San Francisco). Last year, approximately 1,500 people attended Fresh Meat in the Gallery. Info at: www.freshmeatproductions.org <http://www.freshmeatproductions.org/> .
