Artist Open Call – Jazz Music + Art

Submission Deadline
Wednesday, March 30, 2022 at 8:00 pm MST

Jazz Music + Art
(A group exhibition of paintings, conceptual sound installation, and music)

Exhibition Theme
Jazz Music + Art will be a multidisciplinary group exhibition that will explore the relationship between jazz music and visual art through their interaction and influences on each other. The artworks should showcase rhythm and movement as artists create engaging experiences for the audience through various methods of emulating music techniques, such as colour, repetition, and layering in visual art and contemporary interactive installations. The installations should present the influence of sound in the creation of art and exemplify how music has inspired the artworks as well as the art-making process.

The goal would be to create an engaging exhibition that addresses the interdisciplinary nature of visual art and music, while highlighting historical aspects of the jazz movement, and the artists that engage with new medias and musical concepts. The artworks featured in this exhibition would be selected for their use of bold colours, shapes, and interactive sound art that reflects music in contemporary visual art. The exhibition aims to feature a multitude of diverse contemporary artists from visual artists to conceptual installation artists, to sound artists and musicians.

Through the open call, we hope to feature artists who are inspired and/or influenced by jazz music or any musical influences within their visual practice or musical practice.
