Bridging the gap between inspiration and recognition
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, DEAD RINGER Vol. 2.
What is a dead ringer exactly? Well, since you asked, a dead ringer is a person or thing that seems exactly like someone or something else.
For what seems like forever painters have used photography as a source of inspiration. I've been known for taking a screenshot of an image that captures my eye. But more times than not the source material is rarely acknowledged as being a work of art in its own right. This exhibition aims to change that by bridging the gap between inspiration and recognition. All visual artists will collaborate with a photographer, videographer of their choosing by creating works inspired by new images collaborated between the painter/sculptor and paired photographer/videographer. During the show the painting /sculpture and the photography/videography will be hung side by side.
Sounds like a dope show you'd like to be a part of? Then please submit your work by June 9, 2018, to be considered. Read below for more information on how you can apply.
