Newfields is looking for poets and spoken word artists to record their work for an audio presentation to be paired with this year’s Juneteenth exhibit with the theme, The Language of Race. Performances should be no longer than 5 minutes. Please submit either written or audio files to email@example.com. There may also be opportunity for a live performance for the exhibit opening, June 1. Please indicate if you are also interested in performance. Deadline to submit 4/20.
With the truth of history challenged, and the contentious discussions of critical race theory, how can art contribute to the conversation? How do you explore the hidden meanings of words, or confront the unspeakable? How can art empower truth in language and expressions? How does language define people, impact people, and how do people use language for freedom and liberation?
