RAFFMA International Museum Week 2021

The Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art will be celebrating International Museum Week 2021 and we want all of you to join in!
The objective of International Museum Week is to raise awareness on the fact that, “museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples”.

A large part of the week-long celebration is the Emerging Artist Virtual Exhibition! We invite ALL emerging artists (students, staff, faculty, and community) to participate in a new form of exhibition. As much as we wish we could all be together in the museum, the current situation prevents this. So in the meantime, we want to still connect and bring the community together.
See below for all submission details and share with your friends/family!

  • Open Submissions for the Emerging Artist Virtual Exhibition: April 26-30, 2021
  • International Museum Day: May 18, 2021
  • Emerging Artist Virtual Exhibition: May 17-21, 2021

Emerging Artist Virtual Exhibition

The Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art welcomed all artists to submit artwork to the Emerging Artist Virtual Exhibition as part of the International Museum Week 2021. This serves as a chance for us to connect with all of our emerging artists and create a community during these times.

Exhibition Theme:
The year 2020 has been like no other. The COVID-19 crisis has swept the whole world abruptly, affecting every aspect of our lives, from the interactions with our loved ones, to the way we perceive our homes and cities, to our work and its organization. Art is no exception to these changes and in some ways, we are among the most affected due to our strong dependence on social and experiential interactions. The way we make and present our art has changed; we have adapted by embracing technology to create, exhibit and/or reach new audiences. For the purpose of this virtual exhibition, we are asking all emerging artists to either create or share an original work that has been made to adapt or react to this new wave of art and technology.

Submissions are open to all mediums and any use of technology.

Procedure

  • Fill out this entire form and submit it to the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art within the submission dates (April 26 - 30, 2021)
  • Works submitted will be screened for approval. Any work that is deemed inappropriate or blatantly ignores the theme of this exhibition will be excluded. RAFFMA reserves the right to exclude any work from the virtual exhibition for violating community guidelines. Artist will be notified if this is the case and given a chance to submit alternative artwork.
  • During International Museum Week, all approved artwork will be shared on the RAFFMA social media and/or the RAFFMA website.

LIVE via Zoom

Join us for a special panel discussion with art professionals, as they share their views on this year's IMW theme of technology in art.
Do they believe this is a good adaptation for the art community or is this a temporary phase that will not affect art as we know it.
Come prepared with some questions of your own for the panelists!
