In a time where adverse ideologies, politics and ecologies are bombarding us at a steadily increasing rate we are forced to reconsider our strategies for survival. So, what does it mean to be resilient in a time of great resistance? How do you survive the test of time? This show aims to highlight both the immediate and prolonged necessity for methods of adaptability. The site and exhibition within will function as a space for conversation, and a mechanism for sharing in a community driven environment.

Submission Guidelines:

  • 1-5 images (this can be a single body work or 5 different pieces)
    • .jpg format (no larger than 1500 wide)
    • File name example: smith_patti_1.jpg
  • For each piece please also include:
    • Title of work
    • Date
    • Dimensions
    • Materials

All media/mediums will be considered for this show.

Please send images to by November 20, 2017 at 9pm and include all of the above and the following: Name, graduation year, phone number.

We encourage all applicants to visit Office of Career Design in person to get a better idea of the unique exhibition space we get to work with. Office of Career Design’s architecture offers a lot of room for experimentation in hanging style while also presenting some limitations, some of which will be best understood by the creators themselves. That being said, we are open and excited to have a conversation with anyone applying about how to make their artwork possible for display in this space!
