The Daily Acts of Feminism Project: Permanent Wave Festival Exhibit
August 17, 2012 @ Death by Audio & August 18, 2012 @ Big Snow Buffalo LodgeAbout the Project
It’s exactly what it sounds like. Daily Acts of Feminism is an ongoing photography and multimedia project that seeks to explore the world of feminism and to create a space for people to examine and define what feminism means to them, through photography and other art forms. Using various social media websites, periodic exhibits, and publications/zines, we have created a multimedia platform through which contributors can share their “Daily Acts of Feminism”. This is an opportunity for people to express the significance feminism holds for them, how it manifests itself in their daily lives, and the power that can be found in it. A “Daily Act of Feminism” in this context can be anything that is an expression of feminism. It can manifest itself in countless different ways, and can also be perceived in many different ways- what one person might consider a radical feminist act may be a common, daily occurrence for another, and vice versa. Some examples: it can be something you do on a daily basis- like choosing not to shave regardless of the pressure you may feel from society- or choosing to shave on your own terms. It can also be something less common, like participating in a protest or rally. We do not want oversimplify or de-politicize feminism, but we do want to demonstrate that it is diverse and inclusive, and that a powerful act of feminism can come in many different shapes and sizes. We encourage people to reflect on how even a common or seemingly mundane act can be an incredibly powerful assertion of feminism.
About the Exhibit
Our first exhibit will be displayed on August 17th at Death By Audio and August 18th at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge, as part of the 2012 Permanent Wave Summer Festival. Prints will be mounted onto foamcore boards and displayed on easels. The following submission guidelines are for anyone who wishes to have their work shown at one of these 2 upcoming exhibits only. If you wish to submit work to the online/print portion of the Daily Acts of Feminism project, please stay tuned! Information coming soon.
How it Works
Just e-mail us digital previews of the work you want to have displayed at the exhibit. Our submissions coordinator for the exhibit will e-mail you back shortly after to inform you if you satisfy the criteria and of which pieces have been selected. Then, either mail your prints to the address given, or drop them off with us directly (date & location for drop-offs TBA).
Digital previews of the work you wish to have displayed must be received by July 29th. Upon acceptance, physical prints must be postmarked by August 6th at the latest. If you live outside of NYC, please mail prints as soon as you receive confirmation of acceptance. For NYC residents, there will be a drop-off day (date & location TBA).
Please e-mail digital previews of the photographs or artwork you wish to submit to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your art is not already in digital format, you can send us a scan or a clear picture of the work. Please follow the guidelines below when submitting work.
- Maximum number of submissions: 12
- Each individual piece should be accompanied by a caption, describing how it is an example of a “Daily Act of Feminism”.
- If the piece is abstract, please include a short statement in addition to the caption, explaining why you believe this represents a “Daily Act of Feminism”.
- While primarily a photography and video arts project, we will also accept other mediums such as collage, illustration, painting, etc. If you have any questions about accepted mediums, feel free to e-mail us.
- Please include your name, city & any information you feel relevant .
- Anything deemed sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, classist, or otherwise offensive or hateful will absolutely not be accepted.
Guidelines For Accepted Art
- If your work meets all the aforementioned guidelines, you will receive an e-mail shortly after your previews have been received, notifying you that your work has been accepted, which pieces have been chosen for the exhibit, and where they can be mailed to/dropped off. [Please note: We are allowing 12 submissions per person, but because of limited space, the overwhelming response to the project, and our goal of being as inclusive as possible, we will not be able to accept/display all of everyone’s work.]
- This e-mail will also include a release form. Please include a signed copy of the release form with your prints. We will not be able to display your work without it.
- Print dimensions should be limited to either 8x11 or 11x14.
- Please do not send your original copies. Doing so is at your own risk and must include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for return. We cannot accept anything done on canvas or similarly heavy materials, and please do not frame your prints.
If you have any additional questions, feel free to e-mail us at the above address. We look forward to seeing your daily acts!
