Submissions will close on Friday, August 26th and collaborative partners will be contacted byWednesday, August 31st. We will also host a conversation that evening, August 31st, to discuss collaborative approaches and the topic. This will be a great time for you to meet your partner!
How it works: Fill out this form, core members will randomly pair you with another Girl Gang member and then you will create a collaborative work with your partner to be shown in October. The form questions are meant to help start a conversation between you and your partner so please fill it out thoroughly! Please only serious applicants! We want to ensure everyone has a good experience and that means commitment to finalizing a collaboration.
Female Gaze: We welcome collaborating participants to use the idea of "Female Gaze" to create works. The DSM Girl Gang chose this as the show title to celebrate creativity from the lens of anyone who identifies as female in our community. The "Female Gaze" also seeks to confront the "Male Gaze" frequently found in art history. To learn more about both of these topics, please utilize the links found in the form.
