Deadline: October 4 th
Seeking submissions in any and all media for a contemporary group art exhibition at Project Gallery calledArchitexture. There will be an opening reception on Thursday October 10th from 7-11pm.
Inspiring and thought-provoking architecture has the capacity to evoke feelings of the sublime in those who witness it. The tactile nature of architectural forms has the power to produce extreme feelings of awe and wonder. Architecture is phenomenological in nature as it requires systematic personal reflection, directing one’s structure of consciousness – one must always position their physical body in relation to the towering form before them. This positioning takes both physical and mental negotiation of spatial confines.
Many artists seek to represent such three-dimensional spaces in two-dimensional picture planes through the use of texture, manipulation of formal elements, and shapes. The resulting work embodies more than simply a physical sense of space – it creates a mental space that is equally important to discover. Whether the material is solid or composed of the ephemerality of light, work in Architexture is fixated on the idea of architecture and the phenomenology of space. This group-show is oriented around questions such as: How do artists recreate an architectural sense of claustrophobia, chaos, calm or openness in their work? How do spaces impact our psychological readings of architectural forms? How do human beings experience and digest monumental forms that are so alien to us?
