BEYOND AFFECT Open Call (Due: Oct. 31)


BEYOND AFFECT How does affect theory tie into political activism? How do we move beyond affectation and into palpable transformation? How does the location of Fort Wayne, built upon a Pottawatomi burial ground, jutting close to the Canadian border on the Detroit river, in the shadow of the Marathon Oil Refinery inform us? What is its narrative, how did this narrative inform Detroit’s present moment, what is and how do we shape/reimagine Detroit’s/ the United States future narrative?

There is no fee for submitting artwork. Indigenous artists are encouraged to apply.

New media and performance proposal are encouraged.

We currently cannot offer stipends.

The exhibition will take place inside various buildings of Fort Wayne during the winter months.

The exhibition dates are TBA and dependent on artists availability.
