Call to Artists — NOT NORMAL: Art in the Age of Trump


Each fall, since 2016, ArtRage Gallery and Building Company Theater have partnered to create NOT NORMAL: Art in the Age of Trump. We’re back at it again, calling for all types of performance art! On October 24, 2020 ArtRage will open their virtual gallery doors for members of the community to express their artistic outrage over the four years of insanity we have endured under the Trump administration. This is an opportunity to look back at the Trump presidency and to reflect on which of the many nefarious atrocities you feel most compelled to explore and expose.

Selected artists will each present short (10 minutes at most) pieces of theatre, music, dance, readings, films, interactive performances, puppetry, etc.… everything and anything that will fit into a 1”x1” Zoom box. This year, we will all gather virtually at ArtRage, a space dedicated to art as a catalyst for dialogue and resiliency in any age, and especially in the age of Trump! Adaptations from other authors’ works are eligible as long as you have the rights to adapt the material, or material is in the public domain.

All applications are due by Saturday, September 25, 2020 at 11:59 pm
Submissions accepted on a rolling basis

Performance Date: -Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 7 pm
