The Aesthetics of Research is currently seeking submissions in all media & formats for our exhibition, LETHAL LADIES | THE WOMEN OF TRUE CRIME. As both perpetrators and participants in our shared cultural fascination with the subject matter, women have made vast contributions to true crime-related art forms. From murders to heists, deceptions to general unruly behavior, we will explore the patriarchal structures and societal constraints/expectations that true crime, and its subject matter, subvert & transform. Further, how we as artists and consumers create and further these conversations within the genre.
We are looking for both 2-D and 3-D art , installations, text, and objects. Accepted artists will also be offered the opportunity (optional) to join us for a panel discussion on October 3rd to talk about their work, resources, inspirations, etc.
Deadline for submissions: September 15th, 2019
Drop-Off Delivery Dates : September 23-27, 2019
Exhibit Opening, October 3rd, 2019
Please send .jpeg of 3-5 pieces or media files to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
We welcome submissions from all members of the Columbia College and greater Chicago arts community.
