Thunderdomesticity: The F-Word

Vermillion, SD

Deadline:

April 12, 2024

Submission Fee:

$30 if accepted

Thunderdomesticity: The F-Word is a national juried exhibition designed to honor the strength of women (including but not limited to: cis women, trans women, non-binary, two-spirit, and gender fluid people). The current political climate can feel like the end of the world due to everyday misogyny plus the loss of bodily autonomy for many. Since most post-apocalyptic narratives frequently exclude or mistreat women, the F-Word exhibition will feature artists who uplift women. This show will celebrate feminism, which is often considered an “f-word” in regressive regions.

Klaire Lockheart, host of the Femininity in the Post-Apocalypse podcast, will serve as juror. Accepted artwork will be professionally printed as 8x8” squares, and the prints will be wheat-pasted to the exterior of No. 7 Center Gallery in Vermillion, SD. The images will also be included in an online exhibition hosted by packardgroupllc.com. Artwork does not need to be figurative nor narrative to be considered. Artwork that is feminist, post-apocalyptic, or anywhere in between is eligible for submission. All artists from the United States, regardless of gender, are invited to submit one or two square photographs of their art before the deadline of April 12, 2024. The opening reception will occur on Final Friday, May 31, 2024. The outdoor exhibition of prints will be on display from May 31 through June 28, 2024. There is no entry fee to submit artwork, but artists will pay a $30 printing fee for each accepted image. No physical artwork will be shipped to the gallery. (Due to the ephemeral nature of wheat-paste, the prints will be exposed to the elements and public. The prints will change over time and be destroyed in the removal process after the show ends.)
