Wing Luke Museum
Taiwanese/Chinese Immigrant Artists
Eligibility: We are currently accepting submissions from artists of Taiwanese and/or Chinese descent, of any generation, based in Washington State.
The Wing Luke Museum is planning an exhibition of art by Taiwanese and Chinese immigrant artists that will be on display in our central Community Portrait Gallery from December 4, 2020 through November 7, 2021. The show will focus on artists whose work incorporates both traditional Chinese painting and contemporary American influences into new forms, techniques, and media. The exhibit will highlight connections between the artists’ immigrant journeys and their fusion of styles and sensibilities.
We are seeking submissions from artists of Taiwanese and/or Chinese descent, of any generation, based in Washington State. Selected artists will be featured in a digital art show – slide show or interactive touchscreen – in the gallery. In addition, a limited number of artists will be invited to show their original works in the gallery. We are looking for 2D work (painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, etc.) or short video (3 minutes maximum) that relates to, reflects, or is inspired by your personal or family immigration story and/or or your Taiwanese/Chinese heritage. Note that artwork will be displayed on a monitor screen at approximately 16”x24”.
There is no application fee. We are unable to offer payment to artists showing their work in the media component. Artists who are invited to exhibit their original work in the gallery will receive an honorarium.
