…Oh, yes, I’m rattled to the bone by beauty. — Harley Brown, American artist
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder…or is it? For millennia philosophers and visual artists have struggled with the concept of beauty, contemplating its nature and questioning whether beauty as an aesthetic construct exists or has value at all.
The Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program (TREX), organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta, asks artists throughout Alberta to consider this theme as it relates to the 21st century and invites submissions for consideration as part of a planned TREX exhibition. This exhibition, tentatively entitled In Pursuit of Beauty, will begin travelling Alberta in September 2015 and will examine the theme of beauty as addressed both philosophically and visually throughout history and as it is expressed in the visual imagery of contemporary artists working in Alberta.
Submission Deadline: Friday, May 30, 2014
