Description of the “IS” Open Call Series at The Art House Gallery
What appears at first glance to be overly simplistic or repetitive, upon further reflection, can encompass ideas and experience rich with complexity. The themes in the “IS” open call series are intended to be open ended, open to all interpretations. The final curation will reveal a contemporary global ‘snapshot collection’ of each theme in the series.
WAR IS WAR
Which side are you on?
One needs only open a history book to see the insanity that is war. Human beings are slow to evolve--they repeat the same mistakes over and over again without learning the lesson. We identify with our point of view and consider opposing views to be wrong, or worse, as the enemy. In truth, no matter which side you find yourself of an issue, conflict or belief, another perception of the same thing could also be true, if you could really look at it. The experience of war is to be in opposition and identified with your point of view, which, of course, is the RIGHT side to be on. The pattern proven in history is that in order for you to be right, you have to make the other WRONG. This is how someone we've never met can become our enemy. Fear, uncertainty and doubt become the reality in this state. This exhibition seeks to engage artists who explore the theme of war in their work, whether the conflict be within, in an interpersonal relationship or on a broader scale involving countries and religions. What does art made about war look like in 2022? How does a group exhibition from artists all over the globe reveal this intense subject in our present times? Submit your work to participate in this ground-breaking show.
