Submitted artwork should fit or complement the theme “Elephant in the Room” which can be either conceptual or literal in context:
Media themes seeking: controversial, hidden agenda, taboos, secrets, discrimination, inequality, privileges, challenges to social norms, masks, cover-ups and other uncomfortable issues we sometimes choose to hide.
It’s that time of the year again! “What’s Your Elephant” as in ‘the elephant in the room’ is a metaphorical idiom for an obvious truth that is either being ignored or going unaddressed. The idiomatic expression also applies to an obvious problem or risk no one wants to discuss, It is based on the idea that an elephant in a room would be impossible to overlook; thus, people in the room who pretend the elephant is not there have chosen to avoid dealing with the looming big issue.
An important and obvious topic, which everyone present is aware of, but which isn’t discussed, as such discussion is considered to be uncomfortable.
Funding for this project is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council.
This call is open until 11:59PM July 15th.
This will be a month-long exhibition that combines: Art + Performance + Community Outreach
