Call for Artists | UAAD Magazine Annual Edition Feature & Group Show

Poster credit: Underground Art And Design

UAAD is pleased to announce our open call for our annual edition & immersive group exhibition, Alt-Alterity. Alt-Alterity explores alternative perspectives on “alterity” or “otherness”, which exist beyond the scope of what might be considered familiar or known, yet constitute the underlying narrative of planet Earth.

The annual edition and virtual exhibition will together create spaces for critical discourse, engage a multigenerational and international group of artists, brands, and organizations, and bring the readers and viewers a truly transmedia experience curated with love, care, and respect for the artists as well as the land. Selected artists can also be featured in UAAD’s press releases on major news sites.

For artists, all media and styles are welcome, including born-digital artifacts alongside digitized works of traditional media. For vendors (brands and organizations), all categories are welcome as long as your crafts share a similar design vision or artistic voice that is eco-centric/ queer/ fluid/ avant-garde/ etc.
