OPEN CALL FOR ENTRY:
"GEOMETRY"

Juror: Dominic Molon
Richard Brown Baker Curator of Contemporary Art at the RISD Museum

Concept:
Geometry is the branch of mathematics concerned with the properties and relations of points, lines, surfaces, solids, and higher dimensional analogs.

In the arts it has referred to the shape and relative arrangement of the parts of something and includes concepts such as the golden ratio and the use of geometric symbols. It can be found historically in Islamic & Renaissance art, folk art quilts, and was embraced as an aesthetic by the great masters of modern art in the 20th Century.

It continues to thrive today as exemplified by artists utilizing algorithms and expressing them through visual means. When art and math are used in conjunction, moments of true interdisciplinary coordination occur.

This national juried exhibition at Hera Gallery seeks to exhibit a varied perspective on contemporary views of geometry
including, but NOT limited to, pattern (whether in data or aesthetic), fractals, string theory, along with the formal vocabulary of geometry from mathematicians like Euclid to artists such as Mondrian.

Application Deadline: Friday, July 17th, 2015.
