Call For Entries: THIS IS NOW






ROY G BIV Gallery for Emerging Artists is continuing its exploration of identity with THIS IS NOW: VIDEO SERIES, an exhibition juried by Jared Thorne just for video work with a focus on identity. Submit your videos for the opportunity to be screened at the Gateway Film Center on September 14, 2017 at 7 pm.





In recent years, we have seen an expanding number of ways to identify each other and ourselves. These multiplying categories can be insufficient, as many people still find themselves outside of them, rarely can any one category describe the full complexities of an individual.

What is your relationship to identity? Are you a proud member of a group? Are you forging your own identity on new ground? Are you suspicious of the idea of categories and how they divide us? All of the above? Something else? ROY G BIV Gallery is looking for video work addressing identity from artists of diverse races, genders, sexualities, religions, cultures, nationalities, ages and classes.
