Call for Artists: ?Binary¿Nonbinary?

Deadline for entry is March 12


Introducing ?Binary¿Nonbinary?

Some things are binary: black and white, sea and sky, night and day. Somethings aren’t binary: gray, horizons, twilight. Show us work that explores, in any media and all subjects that live in either the binary or nonbinary spheres.” Entries are open to all original 2-D or 3-D artwork. MFA will display selected works in their online Curve Gallery from April 15 through May 31, 2020. Show Chairs: Wil Scott and Richard Niewerth.

Juror: Dr Yuriko Jackall

A specialist in French painting, Dr Yuriko Jackall joined the Wallace Collection in 2018 from the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC where she has been Assistant Curator of French Paintings since 2011. Her research focuses on materials and techniques in the eighteenth century, the history of collecting and formation of taste, and the art of Jean-Baptiste Greuze. In autumn 2017, she curated the acclaimed exhibition, Fragonard: The Fantasy Figures. This project was the first exhibition to focus solely on this aspect of Fragonard’s production and the first to unite the fantasy figures with the recently discovered drawing that elucidates them. She also co-curated an exhibition on Hubert Robert, France’s preeminent painter of ruins and architecture, at the Musée du Louvre, Paris, in the winter of 2016 and at the National Gallery of Art later that year. In summer 2017, she was curator of America Collects Eighteenth-Century French Painting, bringing together loans from forty-eight American museum collections across twenty-five states.


$500 in cash awards will be designated by the juror.

*Award contributors and recipients will also be listed in the exhibition catalog.
