BODY POLITIC. Open to all media, any interpretations. Although the definition of "body politic" is an organized group of citizens, artists may use this term as inspiration: any artwork that addresses the body, politics or the intersection of the two. In these tumultuous times, artists are encouraged to address contemporary culture and controversial issues regarding private space and the control of one's body. Submit artwork that provokes, challenges, illuminates!
