Apocalyptic beliefs have proven remarkably resilient over time. 2012 is considered a profoundly pivotal date in human history. Through media, we are presented with an overall vibe that our way of life is ending: global warming, financial ruin, and spreading plagues. Why the fascination with end-of-the-world scenarios or the notion that collective action is hopeless?
The Balfour Brutzman Gallery invites you to submit artwork in any medium that has emerged through your exploration of apocalyptic beliefs and the end of time, such as system failures, faith, apocalyptic expectations, and psychological or emotional needs. Your dystopic vision can range from Mad Max: love and revenge to Zombie Land to Charlie and Lester’s satirical DYI survival kits.
Entry is open to all CSUMB Students. Final selections will be made by the Balfour Brutzman Curatorial Committee.
How to apply: Entries must be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on
February 24, 2012. Entries must include a maximum of six (6) images @ 72ppi, a list of image credits: title, medium, year, dimensions, and an artist statement (no longer than one page) including your name, phone number, and e-mail.
You will be notified of our selections by Monday, February 27, 2012.
All artwork accepted must be ready to hand and delivered on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 from noon-4pm to building 71.
