Call for Entries: Adaptations
June 2014
Curated by Sheri Crider, Patrick Nagatani, Amy Clinkscales and Valerie Roybal

SCA is seeking works for Adaptations: An Exhibition About Survival. The artworks selected for this exhibition will address the adaptations people make when faced with profound disease and illness. Adapting for survival is common in nature. Plants and animals adapt to changes in environment, especially when conditions become extreme. Adaptation requires the ability to make adjustments, change, or evolve to prevent the internal transformation of disease (and the treatments of the disease) from becoming lethal. We are asking artists what adaptations: emotional, physical, spiritual, etc. he or she has had to make when confronted with disease. What does it take on an individual level to survive and live with a disease?

Submissions will be accepted from November 1, 2013 to February 28, 2014. More information and submission requirements here.
