    2019 ACC Conference “Present Tense”

    October 10 – 12, 2019

    Loews Hotel, Philadelphia

     

    Forging new connections beyond the usual sphere of craft is the topic of our 2019 “Present Tense” conference. What opportunities can we create when we engage in cross-disciplinary conversations about making? How can “craft thinking” and our material knowledge benefit the technological and scientific fields? Can we create an open-minded assessment of our cherished traditions and adapt them to new environments? How does our work remain relevant in a world that has enough “stuff” already? And what can the craft community learn from the culinary, construction, medical, and fashion worlds – just to name a few?

     

    For “Present Tense,” ACC will bring together artists, thinkers, scholars, students, educators, curators, and designers to take the pulse of the craft world and discover new connections and relevance within the broader landscape of fields of all kinds.

    “In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is—as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art. In order to use color effectively it is necessary to recognize that color deceives continually. Color is “passive,” “deceptive,” and “unstable,” color behaves, color  ismagic.”   – Joseph Albers, Interaction ofColor

    Though often divisive and inflammatory, we can't avoid politics in today's world. The intrinsic beliefs and opinions that shape us as human beings can almost always be seen in a political light. For our show this month, we seek pieces that express all things political, regardless of party or belief systems. The artwork may be literal of a politician or political issue or opinion, or it may be figurative and interpretive. It's political, but we value all beliefs and the manner in which these can be expressed, artistically.

    Las Laguna Gallery is now accepting submissions of artwork inspired by anything the artist considers 'political'. There are no restrictions on content, style, medium or context, but your entries should fit this theme, either traditionally or digitally, in some way.

    We invite and encourage artists of ALL ages to participate and look forward to seeing the creativity of your work. All local, national, and international artists, professional and amateur, are encouraged to submit their works for this art exhibition.

    Acceptable sizes: We do not have a limitation on size of works submitted but have found pieces over 48" to be costly for shipping and recommend manageably sized pieces.
