FUTURE DEAD ARTISTS (FDA) is having an open call for emerging, mid-career, and established visual artists, painters, sculptors, photographers and videographers in the Atlanta area to participate in their group exhibition, ABSTRACT MINDSTATE
It's time to go abstract. I would like to feature full time abstract artist and I'm interested to see artists that traditional paint with a narratives approach to abstract work. Now, I actually love abstract art, I love to view it and produce it, but I'm that interested in an artist that doesn't take abstract art serious. I would like to see the artists push themselves. Produce something beautiful, something clever, something...strange.
Sometimes I think we're playing it a little safe. It's time to get weird.
Looking for painters, abstract photography, sculptor and video. Looking for only 9-12 artists.
Sounds like a dope show you'd like to be a part of? Then please submit your work by September 15, 2018, to be considered. Read below for more information on how you can apply.
