Call For Art: Unmonitized

  • December 06, 2021

Call for Art:

Call for work for an exhibition to be held at the UMVA Gallery on Congress Street in Portland in April 2022. The title, and theme, is Unmonetized. The intention of the show would be to show visual art that for any number of reasons has no monetary value as an object.

For many artists, there is an uneasy relationship between making art, assigning a monetary value to it, and promoting and selling it. The show will explore some of these questions: Does the potential and/or pressure to sell have influence over what an artist creates? If the monetary factor is taken away, what is the intrinsic value of art? What happens if artists reject the notion of selling art? What becomes of all of the art that is made but never seen because it may not have commercial value to a gallery?
