The Face of Us (Open Call)

 

The NGJ Open Call 2023 exhibition invites Jamaican artists to compete for a chance to showcase their visual works via a group exhibition. The title of this year’s open call – The Face of Us – is a prompt intended to encourage aspiring exhibitors to use Portraiture as the main image approach.

It is anticipated that the artists will create and submit portrait works that express the personal and social responses of Jamaicans to the cultural and economic realities of life as Jamaicans within the last three years; whether in local or international contexts. 

They look forward to what is in store for the remainder of 2023.
