Call for Art: Place Setting


The Politits: Art Coalition is honored to announce an open call for our 3rd annual juried exhibition: Place Setting, held at The Yards in Rochester, NY. Place Setting is inspired by the idea of the dinner table, a place where artists are welcome to join in conversation, to share, reflect and organize during a time of unrest. This show is for those who are feeling unheard, fed-up, full of rage and are looking for support from their fellow creatives.

Place Setting is focused on supporting artists who have historically been underrepresented in the arts. This year, we will accept work from up to 40 artists, focusing on submissions from female-identifying (and gender non-conforming), POC, and LGBTQ artists that encourage place, space, and togetherness in trying times. We are searching for diversity in process, materiality, and vision; free from censorship.

This exhibition is a way of welcoming folks to our table; opening up places to those who have been traditionally passed over within the art community. We offer you a place, set for those who have art, vision and most importantly tenderness to share.

Two awards will be offered in this exhibition!
(Award Juror TBA)

Women’s Work is the first international invitational exhibition hosted by Politits Art Coalition: a group of six artists including Lindsey Collier, Melissa Huang, Kristina Kaiser, Rebecca Lomuto, Jacquelyn O’Brien, and Tina Starr. As part of our mission to support women in the arts, the Politits Art Coalition has invited over forty women artists to participate in this pop-up exhibition at The Yards! We intend to amplify our voices by coming together. In a world and industry that still favors the masculine, we hope to show just what women artists can do.
