- In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation the Dadian Gallery presents ReFORMation, an exhibition that seeks to explore the legacy of the Protestant Reformation on contemporary artists in the United States. This legacy is complex as it contains elements of iconoclasm as well as approval of imagery in Christian practice. How does this complex legacy influence artists today? For this call, we are seeking the work of artists who are active members of a Protestant church tradition who are seeking to create work that is relevant and meaningful to their communities of worship (either in actuality or in aspiration), and/or those who are possibly critical of their Protestant tradition, yet still inspired or even haunted by that heritage that they are compelled to address these themes in their art. Entries may be of any media, but will be partially chosen given the physical constraints of the exhibition space (See attached floor plan). Works will be primarily selected based on artistic excellence, innovation, creativity, mastery of craft, and a demonstrated relevance to the theme. Please submit a brief artist statement that speaks to the artwork’s relevance to the exhibition theme. We will also accept design proposals that this show may inspire. The artist will be given 2 months to produce the work. It need not be finished, but the submission must be far enough along to insure participation in the show by the installation dates of October 10-14.
