Call For Artists:
Living Life: Stories of Artists Open Call. Throughout time, artists have been touched by mental illness or disorders that affect one’s mood, thinking and behavior. Daniel Johnston, an American musician known for his homemade recordings about love, life and loss, is one example having struggled with bipolar disorder and psychosis. In our 4th Anniversary Exhibition, Living Life: Stories of Artists, SEA of Visibility aims to collaboratively paint an in-depth and nuanced picture of mental illness and the resulting lifestyles sourced from varied lived experiences. We are seeking visual art including 2D and 3D works that explore the effects of mental illness on various individuals, artists and cultures. This exhibit is looking to center and support affected artists and loved ones through themes including but not limited to; psychosis across immigrant, BIPOC, AAPI, and LGBTQIA+ cultures, traumas leading to a dual diagnosis, bipolar disorder and its effect on relationships, ostracization from family, trauma, homelessness, silencing, particular cultural stigmas, acceptance, understanding, successful integration, spiritual growth, etc.are welcome to be submitted. This exhibit calls for a community check-in on your lived life. Let us and each other know, how are you? Submissions accepted from 9/15/22-10/09/22 https://forms.gle/TbKQGa1EBm7WZqpG9
