Call for entries: 2018 Screenprint Biennial

2018 Screenprint Biennial
Deadline for email submissions: Friday, January 15, 2018 at 11:59PM EST

The 2018 Screenprint Biennial seeks to showcase a range of screenprint-based art applications, from framed editioned prints to installation, sculpture, video, ephemera, and posters. This exhibition will in no way seek to act as a survey or “who’s-who” of screenprinting, but will assemble an exhibition that is consistent in highlighting artists who utilize adventurous, relevant, and passionate takes on the screenprinted medium. The Screenprint Biennial is announcing its open call for submissions. Submissions involving video, performance, sculpture, social practice, alternative substrates and processes, and collaboration are encouraged.

The exhibition is scheduled to premiere at the Opalka Gallery in Albany, NY. Located at the Sage Colleges, the Opalka Gallery’s primary focus is on modern and contemporary art and design from nationally recognized artists.
