Stamp Gallery Call for Entries

Stamp Gallery Call for Artists

 

Application Deadline | July 3rd, 2020 Extended to July 10th, 2020

Notification Date | July 17th, 2020

Online Exhibition Dates | August 5th, 2020

 

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

 

The Stamp Gallery at the University of Maryland seeks artwork related to Asian American experiences of the impact of COVID-19, the Model Minority Myth, and inter-ethnic and interracial solidarity. 

 

In early 2020, the United States saw the impact of COVID-19 – a new strain of Coronavirus– across the nation. While the outbreaks of COVID-19 affected all racial and ethnic groups, it was labeled as the “Chinese Virus” by politicians. By racializing the virus, an increase in hate crimes and discrimination against Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) occurred and continue to occur. The conditional statuses of the “model minority” and “honorary whites” that Asian Americans, particularly successful East Asians, enjoyed for the last few decades has been revealed to be entirely provisional. 

 

This summer, Stamp Gallery will be exhibiting an online curated experience tentatively titled “Not Your Model Minority” in an attempt to capture the turning point for the AAPI community in the United States. Works that promote discussion about AAPI history, presence in media, and responses to race-based violence are encouraged. 

 

Selected artwork will be exhibited on an online exhibition platform hosted by the Stamp Gallery, University of Maryland, College Park.

 

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Applicants must submit:

 

• Artist’s Statement about specific works being submitted

MICA Land Acknowledgment

posted on March 06, 2020

Every community owes its existence and strength to the generations before them, around the world, who contributed their hopes, dreams, and energy into making the history that led to this moment. Some were brought here against their will, some were drawn to migrate from their homes in hope of a better life, and some have lived on this land for more generations than can be counted. Truth and acknowledgment are critical in building mutual respect and connections across all barriers of heritage and difference. 

At the office of Multicultural Involvement & Community Advocacy (MICA), we believe it is important to create dialogue to honor those that have been historically and systemically disenfranchised. So, we acknowledge the truth that is often buried: We are on the ancestral lands of the Piscataway People, who were among the first in the Western Hemisphere. We are on indigenous land that was stolen from the Piscataway People by European colonists. We pay respects to Piscataway elders and ancestors. Please take a moment to consider the many legacies of violence, displacement, migration, and settlement that bring us together here today.
