Calls for Submissions




The Aesthetics of  Research Columbia College Chicago Library 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 kbowen@colum.edu for consideration.

We welcome submissions from all members of the Columbia College and greater Chicago arts community.
