Mirror in the Dark explores how flexibility is often used as a tool of resilience as the ebb and flow of life’s challenges are navigated through. The exhibition also examines previous responses to unexpected circumstances and crises. How have challenges affected your life? In what ways did you respond and how have those previous challenges created long-term impacts on how you handle crises? A particularly relevant question when reflecting on these ideas is ‘do crises ever completely leave us?’.

When considering a metaphorical mirror, there is a complicated understanding of one’s reflection because of the distance from previous encounters and how they differ from more current experiences. With an understanding of how identity shifts in response to external change, how does a reexamination of those adjustments impact future responses? This exhibition examines how we are forever impacted by unexpected events and how the tools of resiliency that we build and utilize continue to play a role when dealing with current and future crises. We are seeking work that explores, and perhaps even challenges, the notion of resilience.

5% of profits will be donated to Black Girls Who Paint, a global directory for Black women painters across the globe.

We accept the following mediums: painting, drawing, sculpture, digital, prints, fiber art, collage, photography, and installation art. We do not currently accept film or video at this time.

Eligibility: This opportunity is open to artist of all genders and backgrounds. We are looking for diverse mediums, styles and subject matter. There is not a specific theme for this opportunity.

We do not require that work is available for purchase to be included in this exhibit. We include work that is available along with work that is not available.
