A Mycophilic Art Show
We are now seeking submissions for Mush Love: a fungi-inspired art showcase to be held onsite at the 2018 Radical Mycology Convergence.
The depiction of our fungal allies is a celebration found across cultures. In nearly all forms of art, fungi have been used to exemplify a variety of customs, motifs, and spiritual and healing practices throughout the ages. This year at the RMC, we invite you to share your relationship with fungi through visual, audio, or multimedia installations, and to help others see what working with fungi means to you.
Submissions are open to any media, including sculpture, drawing, painting, photography, performance, multimedia, and fashion. Submissions do not have to be solely about fungi, but can speak to the environments and communities fungi influence. From the technical and scientific, to the abstract and esoteric, we invite all who are touched by these organisms to express and showcase their experience with us this autumn.
Artists are welcome to offer their items for sale during the show, though we request a 5–15% sliding scale donation of the proceeds. Items that are donated to the RMC's silent auction or raffle, or that are loaned (NFS) will have their shipping costs covered by the RMC.
TO SUBMIT A PROPOSAL, PLEASE FILL OUT THIS APPLICATION
The application window closes August 22, and applicants will be notified of our decision by August 29. Selected artists will have until October 7 to send in their pieces.
Please send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
