DEADLINE: January 5, 2019
Exhibit dates: January 15 thru March 23
VAE is seeking submissions that consider knowledge - how we gain it, how we use it, and the systems that create it. No Citation Needed will be on exhibit at the National Humanities Center from January 15 thru March 23. We encourage you to submit entries that consider learning, education, and the transfer of knowledge. How do you learn? Where do you learn? How do you learn outside of formal education settings? How did you acquire the life skills you use in your everyday life? This exhibition is meant to build environment of knowledge and promote the humanities.
Here are some prompts to consider as you think about submitting to the call for art:
What knowledge was passed down through your family? How does that knowledge affect your every day life?
What is your strongest memory of being taught?
How has systemic inequality affected education?
How have communities fought against education inequalities?
How did you learn to make art? How do you teach others?
How can the arts affect the transfer of knowledge?
