CLIMAX. Visual Art International Contest, 1st Ed. (Cri de Femmes Festival).
CRI DE FEMMES FESTIVAL (French West Indies) invites artists all over the world to submit their art to its first
international Visual Art contest. For our 10 years of commitment, we are launching this first visual arts competition of the festival, thanks to partners (entrepreneurs, associations) who are committed to our side. They will offer or fund the prizes!
What the members of the jury will decide on is the strength of the artist's commitment, their sensitivity and their understanding of the issues that affect women: gender violence (intersectionality, domestic violence, etc.) but also who will have best dealt with the theme with regard to the aforementioned criteria:
"CLIMAX" means "orgasm" in English, but also "apogee, peak, apex". We have a thought (ulterior motive) for the environment: CLIMAX / CLIMA / CLIMATE. It is a question of marrying these two causes. #EcoFeminism?
VISUAL ARTS: installation, painting, photography, drawing, performance, short film ... etc.
DEADLINE : MARCH 8, 2021.
TO APPLY :
▪︎Photography / Painting/ Drawing, etc: photographies in HD (JPEG files attached separately) with different views of the art piece if necessary, description of the art piece (technique, topic, approach, motivation), artist bio and photo.
▪︎Performance / Installation / Film : HD Videos ( MOV or MP4 files attached separately) with different views of the art piece if necessary, description of the art piece (technique, topic, approach, motivation), artist bio and photo
□ what makes the difference, beyond the intrinsic quality of the art piece, is how you will approach or tackle the topic. Cri de Femles festival aims at questioning Gender-based issues and specifically in resonance with women's perspectives. And today the ecological issue is intersectional with the societal issues of gender and social class.
