Open Call 2024

"Unraveling Surrealism: Celebrating Women's Narratives through Contemporary Fiber Art"

Hartvest Project is happy to invite The Fiber Artists Miami Association (FAMA) to team up for a special juried exhibition of fiber-based work titled "Unraveling Surrealism: Celebrating Women's Narratives through Contemporary Fiber Art."

 

Curated by Hartvest Project in collaboration with FAMA and hosted by Pinecrest Gardens, this exhibition celebrates 100 years of Surrealism, pays homage to the incredible legacy of women in art, and reimagines their narratives through the lens of contemporary textile art.

 

At the same time, Hartvest Project is celebrating its 10th anniversary, a journey of art connections that has included the production of approximately 300 art events and the collaboration of over 250 local artists, organizations, curators, and followers who have been part of this exciting art journey.

 

For this exhibition, we invite artists to create works that think about the magic and strangeness of beauty in the unconventional medium of textile art, revindicating 100 years in history.

 

We aim to amplify and liberate these voices, reclaim their narratives, and illuminate their enduring influence on the artistic landscape through the fusion of different fiber techniques. Artists are encouraged to push the boundaries of fiber art, forging new connections between past and present and tradition and innovation.

OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS-
6TH ANNUAL EDITION OF FIBER EXHIBITION
WOMEN PULLING AT THE THREADS OF SOCIAL DISCOURSE: WE GOT THE POWER

In a year of violence begetting violence,
we at The Contemporary Art Modern
Project look towards Aristophanes and
Lysistrata for the sixth edition of Women
Pulling at The Threads of Social
Discourse as the solution to stop this
behavior by calling on the power of
women in an exhibition entitled: We Got
The Power.

The harnessing of the power of the
woman over the man is also the focus
of Spike Lee’s film Chiraq which, like
Lysistrata, calls on women to unite and
hold sway over their men. Central to
both the original play and the film is the
power of the woman; what she can achieve when united with other women, her
sisters. In both renditions of the play, not only do the women unite and stop the
Peloponnesian War and gang violence in Chicago, but they posit solutions that hold
the ability stop this ugly behavior from ever returning. One of the goals and intents
of this exhibition, as with 2023’s This is Not A Doll’s House, is to combine fiber art with
the literary arts and have works that speak to the topic of the play. In this case, war....

Artwork Submissions

We are asking fiber artists to create a proposal responding to the play and/or the
film through textiles and text, focusing on one of the sections of the play:

• The Divided Chorus of Old Men Vs Old Women
• The Strophe and Antistrophe
• The Agon.

We ask artists to create horizontal work or works measuring 12 x 20 inches in fiber
works that will be installed to read as a ancient frieze through out the gallery space.
We ask artists to focus on women they admire, who have effected change—be it
home, at work, in the public sphere, or imagined—as in the play and film. We aim to
start a conversation grounded in how uniting renders power, and how power (when
not selfish) can better life. Just as our 2020 Flag Show was held during an election
year we believe that this exhibition can and will resonate, and hopefully project the
possibility of a more humane and caring society.

How It All Started

WOMEN PULLING AT THE THREADS OF SOCIAL DISCOURSE IV

THIS YEAR'S EXHIBITION THEME IS INSPIRED BY HENRIK IBSEN'S "A DOLL'S HOUSE"

SHARE

The annual exhibition Women Pulling at the Threads of Social Discourse has explored the women’s vote, the practice of quilting, and the creation of a room safe for creativity in partnership with Fiber Artists Miami Association (FAMA). For this year’s edition, The CAMP is equally interested in subverting gender-related expectations while leaning into those perspectives using Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House and all the reductive connotations of the feminine flooding through the text from bothmen and women as inspiration. 

 

Going as far back as the mid 1500’s, the word “doll” has been used to describe a compliant but pretty young woman, valued for her attractiveness and not much else. Society’s long-accepted habit of objectifying women, their voices, and experiences continues to be played out in social interactions, on the screen, in the news, and even over a coffee. This year, we ask artists to explore the ideas of this behavior through the idea/concept of dolls and dollhouses. The fourth edition of the exhibition focuses on how “the dolls," i.e., the women of yesteryear (and today) have always held the capacity of power, but were reduced to objects under the patriarchal purview.

This exhibition will explore the ways color is used to interpret and represent history, heritage, and culture through the lens of fiber arts. We invite any conceptual textile artists from FAMA to produce pieces reflecting on this theme, drawing from your own experiences, identities, and ancestry.

"Ancestral Lines"

The Coral Springs Museum of Art invites members of the Fiber Artists Miami Association (FAMA) to submit their work for consideration in the upcoming exhibition "Ancestral Lines" which will be on view from April 10th through July 5th, 2025, at the museum's Main and East Galleries.

This exhibition will explore our heritage, where artists can study their traditions and reflect on their relationship with their ancestors: learn from them, honor them, forgive them, and heal with them.

The collective narrative of this exhibition will be rich and based on the diverse ancestry lines reflected in the multitude of techniques the group already manages.

The museum welcomes artworks from individual artists and proposals from groups for large installations. Please note that as part of our partnership with FAMA, this call to artists is open exclusively to its members. We look forward to receiving your submissions and showcasing the incredible talent of FAMA's members in this exhibition.
