Call for Time-based Media Artists and Films

Twisted Oyster announces a call for artists for its 2018 Vital Signs exhibition. This year the festival will showcase artists creating climate-inspired works in an effort to provoke us to think more critically about our actions and impact. The festival uses art and film to share knowledge, broaden social and climate conversation, educate, and incite action.

Submissions may include works including graphic design, photographs, collage, fibers and mixed media with a digital or electronic component. Time-based* works include virtual and augmented reality, sound, video and performance art, and films (both shorts and feature length). 

*Time-based artists MUST supply their own equipment.

Submit your films here. Deadline May31, 2018.

Thanks to the support by the Zhou B Art Center this year's Twisted Oyster will open July 20, 2018 in its second floor main gallery.

At Twisted Oyster we provide opportunities to artists and filmmakers to share their work through innovative curatorial projects focused on themes of human interest and raising awareness about social and environmental issues. Our Outreach Program pairs artists and youth to share insights about art and film as a voice to express concerns. We believe society is not separate from the environment, that stable communities and economies cannot exist without environmental well-being and we hope that the works presented go beyond expression and inspire people to transform their behavior by making social and environmental issues personal to their lives and change.
