Object(ive) : Call For Art

  • Brookline Arts Association (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Brookline Arts Center invites artists of all media residing in the United States to submit work for "Object(ive)".

Our lives are continuously shaped by the objects we use and create. The meaning or purpose of an object may shift with time. Cups and bowls we use today could become precious artifacts displayed in a museum, or they could be tossed aside as forgotten waste. With the rapid technological advances of the last century, our production of objects has increased dramatically. American culture today can be characterized by our fierce consumerism and attachment to objects. In "Object(ive)" we are looking for work that explores the influence objects have on contemporary life, whether the objects are commonplace, precious, functional, religious, cultural or symbolic.

● Artwork must have been created within the last five years
● All submitted work must be original
