interactive & installation pieces.

Submitted artwork should fit or complement the theme “Elephant in the Room” which can be either conceptual or literal in context:

Media themes seeking: controversial, hidden agenda, taboos, secrets, discrimination, inequality, privileges,  challenges to social norms,  masks,  cover -ups and other uncomfortable issues we sometimes choose to hide.

Let’s go there again! “What’s Your

Elephant” as in ‘the elephant in the room’ is metaphorical idiom for an obvious truth that is either being ignored or going unaddressed. The idiomatic expression also applies to an obvious problem or risk no one wants to discuss, It is based on the idea that an elephant in a room would be impossible to overlook; thus, people in the room who pretend the elephant is not there have chosen to avoid dealing with the looming big issue.

An important and obvious topic, which everyone present is aware of, but which isn’t discussed, as such discussion is considered to be uncomfortable.

There will be a panel discussion as well as a month-long interactive piece inviting the community to share their ‘elephant’.

Artists are welcomed to  participate  in a community outreach art project  with local at-risk youth.  Artists who are interested in volunteering in the art project please contact the producers of the show. All participating artists are encouraged to participate in all of the events; however,  the only requirement is to be available  the opening night.

Crossing the Lines is a collective art exhibition promoting a dialogue between visual artists, poets, spoken word artists, performance artists and  human rights activist to reflect upon immigration, human rights and social justice.
The exhibition maps the bricolage of crossings: identities, hybridization of culture, dreams, struggles, human rights violations, human trafficking, hidden fears, and social and political mobilization.
Crossing the lines entail: 1) assimilation, social mobility (or the achievement the American Dream) and marginalization of documented and undocumented immigrants.  2) In certain historical context immigrants are subject of political discourse which identify them as threats, as a sector competing with the labor market, as deviance group  (e.g., non Anglo Saxon European, Chinese, Japanese, Latinos, Arabs and other).
The artists as cultural workers have a distinctive “new politic of difference,” and aesthetic of activism contesting immigration policies by forming a collective creative resistance.
Artists as cultural workers are promoters of resistance, affirmation of difference, identities, human rights, and social justice through creative process, bringing lines of dialogues for social justice and human rights to vulnerable populations.
