The Union Gallery invites submissions for the exhibition, (Me)diated re/flections. We invite submissions in all media (sculpture, photography, video, print.)

Consumption of digital media, physical objects and activities shape and reflect a notion of the self and community. In our daily activities, we peruse the grocery store aisle, browse on the Internet, wear and discard garments; our identities are reflected and refracted onto these objects, exchanges and experiences. Submissions that explore vulnerability, and entanglements are encouraged.

The gallery supports the presentation of high quality contemporary art in the form of original, collaborative and experimental ideas and projects. Works in progress will be considered as long as they provide the selection team with a clear idea of the finished piece and if selected, they must be completed by November 10th, 2018.
