Women artists competition, Berkeley
I would like to inform you of an upcoming competition for Iranian female artists taking place in Berkeley, California, USA, in conjunction with the International Iranian Women's Conference. This year the committee of IWC, with the encouragement and collaboration of local artists in Northern California, has organized competition for an exhibition of the contemporary arts, produced by Iranian women artists.
We would greatly appreciate it if you'd assist us in spreading the news to the Iranian communities through your publication and/or other means of communication. We think that this show represents the opportunity to showcase the Iranian women artists in a new light, not only to a non-Iranian audience but also to the Iranian community which may not have realized itself, in the field of contemporary visual arts.
Here's the information regarding the show and a call for entries:
The theme of the conference: "Review of Iranian studies and movement in the past two decades and its future outlook"
Working title of the exhibit: "Beyond Boundaries" beyond the boundaries of a binding culture
Deadline: March 1st 2000 Media: all except crafts
Please send: Slides: 20 slides of your most recent work and works related to proposals if applicable Please include a self addressed/ stamped envelope for the return of your slides. Resume statement and/or proposal.
-Proposals for installations/ collaborations/ including video and multi media are also accepted. Although at the moment we have a very limited budget, we would do everything in our power to raise money if a proposal is accepted. Please include a budget estimate in your proposal and other resources you might have for funding the project. Also include the equipment and help needed in putting the installation together.
