Call for Entry Details

Topographies: Layers, Mapping, and Paths -  Manifest Creative Research Gallery  •   Cincinnati, Ohio
Deadline:  January 7, 2020
More Info

Manifest invites artists to submit works which in some way address the theme of TOPOGRAPHIES (works about layers, mapping, paths, and related concepts).

Whether it be our skin, personalities, culture, or the surface of the planet Earth, layers, pathways, and the documents and images that explain and support them are all methods of understanding—lenses for revealing the surface of things and what lies beneath. Strata are time-capsules, representing tangible chronological data stored away for exploitation or harvest at some later time. But how do layers and paths as concepts occur in works of art, in the art making process, or in the resulting experience for the viewer?

Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view of the theme. Our multi-member juries embrace surprise, creative solutions, and most of all exceptionally well put together visual art. The bottom line is the work should address the general theme discussed above in some way, even if subtle and understated.

TOPOGRAPHIES is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works which address the broad theme described above. Submitting works shown previously in Manifest’s physical gallery exhibits is discouraged.


Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts media.
