CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
“CRISIS OF NARRATIVE”
Concordia’s Ethnocultural Art History Research workgroup invites you to submit works for our vitrine exhibit, opening March 15th 2013 in the Art History Department vitrine (EV-‐building, 3rd floor).
We are searching for artworks in any medium that pushes forward discussions surrounding crisis of narrative in visual art. How does this crisis within the institutional framework influence artistic production, address issues of place, identity, gender, history, hegemony and representation?
