Fall 2022 Student Response Exhibition

Miami University Art Museum ~ August 23–December 10, 2022

Deadline: April 10, 2022 (Extended)

For questions, please contact Jason Shaiman at shaimaje@miamioh.edu


Theme

Miami Interconnected: Land | Identity | Community (A Student Response Exhibition)

PREMISE

During the observance of the 50th anniversary of the relationship between the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma and Miami University, we will reflect on the often unseen established rights of tribal sovereignty in North America. Tribal sovereignty includes inherent and retained political rights and cultural integrity. Three key factors in maintaining sovereignty are land, identity, and community. This is the foundation of the Fall 2022 MUAM SRE in conjunction with the Miami University FOCUS topic for the 2022-2023 academic year.

PROMPTS (These are single ideas to help you create - your work does not need to include all prompts)

1. How do you relate to the land you inhabit?
2. How does your identity/identities (for example, heritage, ethnicity, culture, race, gender) impact who you are today?
3. How do you engage with your community?
4. How are these all connected for you as an individual and/or as a Miami student?

 

In this seventh juried Student Response Exhibition, Miami students are called upon to present unique and diverse commentaries on the theme of: Miami Interconnected: Land | Identity | Community. Interpretations are subject to the student’s personal perspective, major/minor, culture, age, experiences, etc. Be creative! Selected works in this juried competition will be on display at the Miami University Art Museum as one of the three semester-long exhibitions (August 23–December 10, 2022).

Submissions are open to all Miami students. Original forms of expression, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, ceramics, drawing, prints, jewelry, music, videos, computer interactives and poetry are encouraged.
