Yellow Peril Gallery To Exhibit Occupy Providence Artwork

Friday, December 09, 2011

 

Yellow Peril Gallery at The Plant is issuing a Request for Submissions for artwork inspired by "Occupy Providence" to launch the Gallery Night 2012 season in Providence, Rhode Island, on March 15, 2012. The deadline to apply is December 31, 2011.

The impact of Occupy

Since October 15, 2011, Burnside Park has been continuously occupied by a steady number of the 99% -- a diverse group of people disenfranchised by what they deem as crimes committed or fueled by the 1%: corporations, financial institutions, and government agencies. "Is this what ‘Democracy’ looks like?" say owners of Yellow Peril. "Or will Madison Avenue steal ideas from the swathe of protest signs and unforgettable personalities that have materialized since the OCCUPY [Fill In The Blank] movement went global – without any significant gains…yet."

OCCUPY [Fill In The Blank] will feature artwork inspired by the movement known as ‘Occupy Providence’. Submitting artists are not required to pledge allegiance to the 99%, according to the gallery, but must have firsthand experience (in any capacity) with the OCCUPY movement.

From submissions, Yellow Peril Gallery will select up to 5 artists to exhibit at OCCUPY [Fill In The Blank]. Submissions not selected for this exhibition may be considered for future group and/or solo shows.

For criteria, required materials, and guidelines, please download the RFS and Application via Yellow Peril Gallery's Web site, here.
