9th Annual International Competitive Exhibit Exploring the Uncovered Human Form in Current Art
Call for Entries Deadline: June 12, 2017
Manifest exhibits many kinds of works, from more conceptual and experimental art to the traditional. In fact, they think it’s important to have such a range in their repertoire. It is something that Manifest is known for. Their annual projects allow the chance to track how artists around the world address a consistent theme, subject, or media over time, or allow them to document the state of art in a particular strata of professional creative activity, and to study and preserve findings in a meaningful way through exhibit publications and website.
NUDE is one such project. The human body is a popular subject for many reasons, the most obvious being that it is us. Throughout history the representation of the human form has been charged with tremendous energy, both positive and negative. Whether it be a religious edict that one should not depict the human form, a taboo, or the glorious opposite, a revelation of mastery over form in the crafting of sensuous and life-like physical human beauty, the art of the body has nevertheless moved us through time.
Through all the permutations art has experienced across history, work of the body persists. We use the human nude to master skill, understand ourselves, and push social and psychological buttons for the sake of expression (sensual, delicate, political, aggressive, and so on). Manifest’s ongoing annual NUDE project will explore how our collective body is used today in art to achieve these goals and more.
This year, they are happy to continue their invitation to artists to submit works in any media, of any style or genre (abstract, conceptual, highly realistic, etc.), and of any size, for consideration in Manifest’s ninth annual NUDE, an international competitive exhibit exploring the uncovered human form in current art.
