February 22–24, 2018
Due date: November 17, 2017
‘Reality Sandwiches’ is inspired by a collection of Allen Ginsberg’s poems of that same title. Ginsberg conceived of reality sandwiches as scribbled secret notebooks and wild typewritten pages for your own joy. In that light, and tying it in with the overall conference theme of Art Speaks! Lend Your Voice, we invite artists to depict their current reality, their view of the current state of reality or where they wish for their reality to be.
Juror Alison Saar: Internationally known, Los Angeles based artist Alison Saar is a sculptor, painter and installation artist whose work explores themes of African cultural diaspora and spirituality.
We encourage arts educators to encourage entries from young women artists aged 18-35. We have reserved an adjacent room to the gallery space for conversations and to provide outreach materials on Young Women’s Caucus, student clubs and other topics of interest. A ticketed evening of performances will follow in the adjacent theater at ArtSpace LA.
The annual WCA conference takes place this year in Los Angeles, February 22–24, 2018.
