Deadline: February 19, 2019. 

The Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA) is pleased to announce an open call for artists to submit work to our juried exhibition, Breaching the Margins, which opens at UICA May 10, 2019. 

Theme: Societies often attempt to deny marginalized groups of people avenues for social inclusion and space to articulate self-defined identities. However, art can be an active force that supersedes societal relegations, and a catalyst to give power to groups who were formerly powerless. With this open call, artists are challenged to examine ideas that work against the social exclusion of marginalized groups, be it in culture, spaces, or society. 

All mediums will be considered. All artists who have work accepted into the show will receive a stipend, which can be used to assist with shipping costs. To apply to be considered, visit https://www.uica.org/btmopencall
