UAAD is pleased to announce our open call for our annual edition & immersive group exhibition, Alt-Alterity. Alt-Alterity explores alternative perspectives on “alterity” or “otherness”, which exist beyond the scope of what might be considered familiar or known, yet constitute the underlying narrative of planet Earth.
The annual edition and virtual exhibition will be made up of two parts: artwork (artists) and crafts (vendors), together creating spaces for critical discourse, engage a multigenerational and international group of artists, brands, and organizations, and bring the readers and viewers a truly transmedia experience curated with love, care, and respect for the artists as well as the land. Selected artists can also be featured in UAAD’s press releases on major news sites.
We invite artists of all genres and styles, encompassing born-digital creations and digitized renditions of traditional artworks. For sponsoring vendors (brands or organizations), we welcome all categories provided they share a harmonious design ethos or artistic expression aligned with eco-centrism, queerness, fluidity, avant-garde, and more.
