C A L L  F O R  A R T I S T S :

How does artmaking fit into your life when working a full-time job (or several part-time jobs), performing domestic chores, being politically engaged,etc.? Does your work change, in scale or ambition, or become about your situation in some way? Do you find other avenues to express your creativity, and if so, what do they look like? Is it possible that the routine systems of maintenance and care that you are practicing everyday are in some ways art or can be art, or have you made them into art?

We ask interested artists to submit a piece or project, along with a short statement related to these questions. If chosen, both will be displayed in a group exhibition at Public Space One in Iowa City in December 2015. Submissions ranging from artwork that is decidedly opposite to your job to projects in which your job becomes your creative practice are welcome. Send submissions to

Submissions accepted on a rolling basis up to Sunday, November 15.
