Expose Yourself – 2018 CALL TO ARTISTS

Expose Yourself is a boundary-pushing, body-celebrating, hilarity-making, multi-disciplinary art exhibition based in Powell River, BC. We value art, humanity, and humour (and a little punk rock)

2018 theme: ‘Resist/Submit’ Artists are invited to artistically depict the theme ‘Resist/Submit’ by exploring a wide variety of possibilities including resisting or submitting to; desires, dreams, societal norms, stereo-types, your nature, the natural world, love, power (yours? theirs? ours?), time, culture, aging, imagery, politics, boundaries, passions… Anything one chooses to keep in the closet or flaunt. We hope artists will take this broad theme and dig deep. Submissions depicting diversity in life styles, sexuality, bodies, and political satire are encouraged.
