Center for Sex and Culture is looking for art

Doing Your Dirty Work 3: Deeper, Closer

Open to Artists in the San Francisco Bay Area Only

**please reblog and help us spread the word!

Doing Your Dirty Work 3: Deeper, Closer is a group exhibition at the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco, California that will focus on a small group of artist working in the Bay Area. We invite all Bay Area artists that are at least 18 years old to submit recent artwork that deals with themes of sexuality, sexual identity and gender identity.  Please do not censor yourself. Nothing is too perverse!

By including fewer artists in this year’s Doing Your Dirty Work, we intend to take a deeper look at the work of local artists. At this time, it grows increasingly difficult for artists to remain in the Bay Area—so we are choosing to look at work by local culture-makers who make art about sex.

The Center for Sex and Culture Gallery aims to provide space for artwork of significant merit that addresses sexuality and sexual identity, especially those that are non-normative. We offer a space for explicit content that is rarely shown at mainstream venues. Often, erotic art exhibitions represent perspectives that are primarily hetero, cis, and/or white centric. CSC Gallery makes bridging these divides and providing a solution to these shortcomings its mission.

Submissions are due at midnight Wednesday, June 18th. The show will be from Friday, August 1st through Sunday, September 28th. Artists must be able to deliver and pick up their work at the Center for Sex and Culture.

To enter your work, send the following to sexandculturegallery@gmail.com:

  • 5 images, jpegs less than 2mb each; no zip files
  • List of images with size, media and title (in the body of your email)
  • Artist CV
  • Statement less than 300 words about your work (in the body of your email).
  • On the main page of http://www.sexandculture.org/ click on the red donate button on the right side to pay $15 art entry fee. (Note that you have paid entry fee in body of your email.)
  • The Center for Sex and Culture is a mixed-use community center, so floor space is not available for the exhibition. All work must be able to be mounted on the wall. We do not have equipment to present video work, but will accept wall-mounted video work with provided equipment. Wall-mounted sculpture is also acceptable.

Scholars have long maintained that each era has a unique spirit, a nature or climate that sets it apart from all other epochs. In German, such a spirit is known as “Zeitgeist,” from the German words “Zeit,” meaning “time,” and “Geist,” meaning “spirit” or “ghost.” Some writers and artists assert that the true zeitgeist of an era cannot be known until it is over, and several have declared that only artists or philosophers can adequately explain it. While we are not setting out to define a Queer Zeitgeist, the exhibition will expose and comment on manifestations of our cultural moment.
We are looking for artistic expressions that reflect or critique the intellectual, ethical and cultural climate of our queer times.
We hope to present trends in queer arts such as: queer craft, traditional as well as experimental works of painting, drawing, and sculpture, work that foregrounds emotional content and/or performance over formal aesthetics, new ways of representing the erotic, the body, gender and identity, reflections on the queer archive, ideas of domesticity, new ways of thinking about public and private space, queer time, remixed and repurposed work including collage and assemblage, eco/environmental work, the return to analog, all things digital, networked art, manifestations of social practice, relational work, collaborative work, activist art, interventions, propaganda, new approaches to film and video, audio art. International artists that offer a global perspective on queer art making are strongly encouraged to apply.
All media and artistic practices will be considered.
