The Face of Us: Submissions Are Open!

 

It's time to send in your artwork! Submissions for The Face of Us Exhibition are officially open and they are excited to see the various ways artists have used portraiture.

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. 

The submission period runs from Monday, September 11 until Friday, September 15, 2023, at 6 pm.
