Open call for SECRETS, BOUNDARIES AND VIDEO GAMES

Flyer for Exhibit

PLEASE APPLY HERE
Submissions due on April 10, 2015 at 11:45 PM.
As millennials we grew up under the influence of video games; they taught us all about secrets and boundaries. They showed us that secrets make the game interesting, and we learned how to destroy and build boundaries in order to access those secrets. Secrets and boundaries are significant because they make us human. In a world without secrets and boundaries, we would be unable to distinguish between our inner and outer selves. What are your boundaries? Expose your secrets!

The Bronx Museum Teen Council is curating an exhibit based on these themes. Artists ages 15-19 are invited to enter up to three pieces of artwork centered around the themes “SECRETS, BOUNDARIES AND VIDEO GAMES,” to be exhibited at the museum summer 2015.

PLEASE NOTE: Submissions do not need to be related to video games for consideration!
