Chicago Torture Justice Memorials - IL
Deadline: January 21, 12. We invite artists and those who seek justice of all kinds to submit speculative proposals for a monument to memorialize the Chicago Police torture cases. Our goal is to honor the survivors of torture, their family members and the African American communities affected by the torture. The monument will also recall and honor the nearly two-decades long struggle for justice waged by torture survivors and their families, attorneys, community organizers, and people from every neighborhood and walk of life in Chicago. These memorial projects will serve as a public reckoning with police torture in Chicago and honor those who fought to stop it. We hope to make visible the social and political conditions that made torture possible, as well as the acts of courage that ended – or at least brought to light — the culture of impunity that thwarted justice for so long in this instance. Every submission will be an act of solidarity with torture survivors. We welcome proposals that exhibit radical imagination – they may critically examine the usefulness and limitations of monuments themselves while exploring the issues of reparations, truth and reconciliation, and restorative justice. For example, one submission might consist of the blueprint for a compensation committee for torture survivors, another might be an annual walking tour of Area 2 Police Headquarters (where the majority of tortures occurred), while still another might be a large public sculpture set on a pedestal or in a public square. Other monument proposals might be public events, a school curriculum, a collective quilt, a song, a billboard, a zine, a light projection… These memorials should also be understood as a locus of public empathy, making concrete the profound suffering of those who endured these acts of torture. All submitted proposals will be exhibited at one or more of the following venues in 2012: Chicago area art galleries, community centers, and a dedicated website. Qualifications: This is an open call. Submissions may be made by a person or persons of any age and nationality. Artists, architects, photographers, writers, poets, musicians, performers, activists, and everyone concerned with justice is welcome to submit a proposal. The proposals, exhibition, and what we hope to become some permanent monument(s) will honor the survivors of police torture, acknowledge the communities most affected by police criminality, and inform the world about the history of the police torture in Chicago under former Commander Burge. We hope this project will build a social movement strong enough to deter these and other acts of torture and transform our broken criminal justice system. How to Apply: A proposed monument may take any form – from architecture to haiku, from website to mural, from community organization to performance, from bronze plaque to large-scale memorial. The submission should be in the form of a PDF, PPT, webpage, or other accessible electronic format sent to justicememorials@gmail.com. Non-electronic submissions will also be accepted; please mail to: Chicago Torture Justice Memorial Project (CTJM Project), c/o People’s Law Office, 1180 N. Milwaukee, Chicago, Illinois 60642.

Flora and Faune: Narrative Through Iconography - NY
Deadline: December 1, 11. For generations, artists have used signs and symbols from nature to impart meaning in their artwork. Audiences of previous eras were well-versed in this seemingly covert language. Each icon usually has several different meanings; for instance a rabbit may mean fertility, longevity, femininity or rebirth. However, the rabbit as a symbol, like all other icons, has been in use for centuries around the globe. The multiple meanings of iconographic signs were applied layer by layer as they moved culture to culture. Nature was imbued with meaning by humanity and artists used those images to tell a story, a narrative. This thematic juried exhibition seeks artwork that uses those established symbols to tell a contemporary story about our society — past, present or future.

Where We Are - National Juried Exhibition - MO
Deadline: November 30, 11. Where We Are: Tectonic Shifts and Dissolution of Boundaries. A National Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art in all Media. DeLuce Gallery, Northwest Missouri State University. Over the past decade the world of contemporary art has experienced the rumblings of a tectonic shift. Many contemporary artists combine and work across disciplines in their queries about the meaning of art and its relationship to everyday life. This exhibition aims to explore the potential of contemporary visual art that embraces the blurry lines being explored by artists who are currently breaking down boundaries and working between the tenets of two dimensional art practice, mixed media, digital and media art, and the physical world we move through. Juror: Elaine A. King, PhD, Art Historian, Critic and Curator. Elaine King is currently Professor of History of Art, Theory and Museum Studies at Carnegie Mellon University.
