Call for proposals: NCECA 2014

DEADLINE JAN 4th
 
From March 19 to 22 of 2014 Milwaukee will serve as the host city for the 48th Annual Conference of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA).  I am pleased to be serving as the on-site liaison for this conference.

The theme of the conference, Material World, will be dedicated to an investigation of the complex ways that materials acquire meaning through the things that we make and those that surround us in our daily lives. Exhibitions and programs will expand on traditional definitions of fine and decorative arts, craft and design in the context of the 21st century.

As a way of reaching out to innovative artists and thinkers I am writing to let you know about the call for proposals for the 2014 NCECA concurrent independent exhibitions. We are looking for dynamic exhibition proposals from artists at various stages in their career that will be housed throughout Milwaukee in conjunction with the conference.  Deadline for submission is January 4.

Selected by a review committee, proposals are considered for their ability to successfully respond to the thematic structure of the conference and in the way that they showcase the field at this particular moment in time.  

Please follow this link for complete information: http://nceca.net/static/conference_concurrent_info.php

I hope that you will consider making a proposal, and would ask that you pass this email along to anyone that you feel would be interested in the project.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Best,

Paul Sacaridiz
