Rewriting the Master Narrative: A National Juried Exhibition

Arts + Literature Laboratory (ALL), a contemporary arts organization in Madison, WI, seeks submissions for Rewriting the Master Narrative, a national juried exhibition focused on how printmaking can challenge the paradigms we live with and expand the stories we collectively tell. The exhibition will be juried by Deborah Maris Lader, Founder/Director of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative. One prizewinner will be awarded a solo exhibition opportunity at ALL in 2019 or 2020.

Artists are invited to submit two and three-dimensional artworks based in printmaking that explore and expand the boundaries of storytelling. Themes include but are not limited to mythologies, history and current events, systemic change, and social commentary.

All artists working in all printmaking media are eligible: professional and student, local and national. Entries may be from individuals or collaborative teams. Submitted work must be recent and original—designed and created by the applicant. Artists may submit up to three works of art (up to three images per work).
