From Susan Post, Colleen Randall, Patricia Spergel: Call for Artists for The Writing on the Wall, Deadline May 5, 2015

Name of the show: The Writing on the Wall

Cost to Apply: $35

Submission Form

Show Location: The Painting Center, Chelsea, New York
Show Dates: June 23 – July 18, 2015
Deadline for Submission: May 5, 2015
Notification Date: May 15, 2015
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 25 from 6 – 8 pm

The Painting Center is pleased to announce the exhibition, The Writing on the Wall, running from June 23 through July 18, 2015. Highly publicized by the gallery, and with both a print and digitally archived catalog and an essay written by the artist Karen Schiff, this exhibition will feature a diverse group of artists who are exploring text-based art. Visual art that incorporates writing engages the viewer on multiple fronts, with letters, numerals or scribbles that bridge the divide between mark making and narrative meaning. Historical examples like Egyptian hieroglyphs or Chinese calligraphy have often served more than a single purpose, including decorative, mundane and the profoundly ritual. From Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns to On Kawara and Jenny Holzer, exceptional artists have long grappled with the signification of words and numbers, which have proven fertile ground in a broadening range of contemporary art. In Mira Schor’s representations of language, Michael Scoggins’ ‘assignments’, the documentary artscapes of Loren Munk as well as graphic novels, ‘zines and the explosion of street art that started back in the day of autographical graffiti tags, we sense the synergy that occurs when text is more than just a caption to the image. We invite representational and abstract artists working in a variety of media to submit work that includes text, numerals or any form of writing. This exhibition will be juried by Susan Post, Colleen Randall and Patricia Spergel on behalf of The Painitng Center Membership.
