Destroy & Rebuild SUBMISSION

DESTROY & REBUILD Group Art Exhibition. Sometimes the idea is good, but the timing is off. Sometimes you have to Destroy Everything and Rebuild, with a new perspective... a fresh start.


FUTURE DEAD ARTISTS (FDA) is having an open call for emerging, mid-career, and established visual artists in the Atlanta area to participate in their group art exhibition at FUTURE GALLERY,  Destroy & Rebuild.

THEME OF THE SHOW: Every artist I know, including myself, has a stack of old paintings. Some paintings never sold, some unfinished, and some that we thought was dope, but looking back we don't know what hell we where thinking?!

Destroy & Rebuild is a show where the artist takes old, unsold, unfinished paintings and rework them. The artist can remix the painting, finish a unfinished painting, the artist can use the old painting as a under-layer, or the artist can totally cover the old painting up. It is up to each artist how they approach the mission. The Social Marketing of the show, will be to show each artist's old/current work on social media, but the viewer will have to attend the art opening in person to see how each artist destroyed & rebuilt their painting.

Sounds like a dope show you'd like to be a part of? Then please submit your work by February 18, 2018, to be considered. Read below for more information on how you can apply.
