Transparent Factors (in Form and Content)
As an extension of the Northern Illinois University Art Museum’s mission to present contemporary art through the platform of thematic exhibitions, the Art Museum is requesting calls for entries for its 2018 – 2019 exhibition calendar.
Exhibition Dates: November 15, 2018 – February 15, 2019
Exhibition Theme: This exhibition will examine the spectrum of interpretation of the word “transparency”; from the literal to the figurative. Artists who explore both the visual phenomenon of transparency and the concept of “transparency” in content, be that process, funding, idea or material.
Artwork may also deal with the opposite of transparency and examine opacity and/or translucency as a means of more keenly exploring the nature of transparency. Glass, water and veils as well as public meetings and inclusivity all play a role here. The exhibition will be complemented by a display and symposium of Asian reverse glass works which take full advantage of the “magic” of transparency.
In part, coming from a national Call for Entry, local invitational, and works borrowed from regional public and private collections this staff-curated exhibition is to be held at the NIU Art Museum in Winter 2018 – Spring 2019.
