Submission to an art exhibition involves a self-editorial process. An artist is called upon to survey their recent works, and ultimately, to decide what stays and what goes. The process of selection by the artist is an act of curation that will impact their own selection by the exhibition curators. For students, this self-editorial act can be as educational as the work itself.
The Littman Gallery is pleased to present its 6th Annual Juried Exhibition. Every year, the Littman staff extends an invitation to the students of Portland State University to submit completed works that they feel best represents their art practice. For each juried exhibition, the Littman Gallery’s curatorial staff invites art professionals from outside the PSU community to collaborate on selecting works to be included in the annual exhibition. This year our jurors will be Coco Madrid, Eden Redmond and Josephine Zarkovich.
This call for submissions is open to all PSU students, of any major, class standing or status. If you are interested in submitting work for consideration, please follow the below guidelines:
