ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The MAC is calling for submissions that respond to the thematic of an upcoming exhibition, entitled
Cosmic to Corporeal: Contemporary Queer Performance Practices, curated by Liss LaFleur and on view
September 21 through November 9, 2019.
Cosmic to Corporeal is a juried exhibition which will explore performance practices specifically in relation
to the queer body. We are particularly interested in the relationship of the body to technology, and
invite submissions of all media with an emphasis on performance, performance documentation,
performance texts, video, and time-based works. This exhibition seeks to provide an international,
intergenerational, and intersectional exchange of artists who are working to redefine the constructs of
performance art and identity.
The exhibition is open to all artists 18 years of age or older. Each participant may submit up to three
completed works for consideration. Entries are due by 11:59 PM CST on Thursday, August 15, 2019.
Selected art should be ready for installation at the time of delivery. No artwork shall be removed from
the exhibition before the closing date. Artists whose work requires the use of electronic equipment must
plan to provide their own equipment, and indicate their needs along with their proposal.
HOW TO APPLY
Please apply via The MAC’s Submittable page at themacdallas.submittable.com.
Artists may submit up to three artworks for consideration. Additionally, we request a brief bio (250
words) and a written artist statement (500 words or less) that responds directly to how your proposed
work(s) respond to this exhibition prompt. Artists may submit images (up to 5MB each), video (up to
250MB each), audio (up to 30MB each), and PDFs (up to 10MB each). Public links to media on YouTube,
Vimeo, and SoundCloud will also be accepted.
There is an entry fee of $10 per application for non-MAC members. MAC members should contact
assistant(at)the-mac.org for instructions. Notifications will be sent on Thursday, August 22, 2019.
