NoMAA’s Open Call for On-line Exhibition “Healing and Community: Physical to Virtual” (DEADLINE EXTENDED TO APRIL 29th)

Now accepting submissions to the first in a series of ONLINE EXHIBITIONS, Healing and Community: Physical to Virtual, curated by Patricia Miranda. Submission Deadline (Extended): April 29, 2020. Free application: https://healing-and-community.paperform.co/

Artists can apply to one or all three galleries over three deadlines.
The Galleries:
Reflection: Art of introspection and meditation
Connection: Art that links the self to others
Community: Art as action
Art weaves threads of connection across otherwise robust boundaries.
These connections translate into actions that ripple out into the world as culture, through art that reflects, critiques, and celebrates the complicated world we live in.
In a time of social distancing, art brings us together. We sing across balconies, dance across computer screens, paint and post pictures of the mundane and the extraordinary, the tragic and the comedic. Art connects us when we cannot physically be together, and reminds us of the bonds that make us a community.

Eligibility
Open to artists working or residing in El Barrio, Harlem, Washington Heights or Inwood. Above 110th Street on the West Side (west of 5th Ave) and above 96th Street on the East Side (east of 5th Ave).

Requirements
Original works only
Submit up to 4 images in any visual art medium
Submit max 5 min video of performance – including spoken word, dance, theater or multi-disciplinary. Videos must be uploaded to Youtube, and Youtube url (website link) entered in submission form (example: https://youtu.be/iuESazLXcQY).
