The Ray Warren Symposium on Race and Ethnic Studies is currently accepting art submissions from the L&C students.The symposium is an annual, student-led event designed to initiate dialogue about race and ethnic studies and features speakers from around the world. Traditionally, artists from Lewis & Clark and from the greater Portland community submit works to be exhibited in conjunction with the symposium. This is an excellent opportunity for you or your friends to have their work considered!
This year’s symposium will examine issues of race, ethnicity and the prison system, law enforcement, immigration and deportation, and other dimensions of the carceral state:
Police States, Prison Nations: How do racial ideologies intersect with and inform ideas about crime, punishment, justice, and state authority?
We are searching for works that express concepts surrounding this issue. Pushing the boundaries of the theme, presenting personal experiences, or exploring more specific issues are encouraged. The exhibition will take place November 13th-15th.
We invite submissions of any medium
no later than Friday, October 18th
. We request that you provide digital images, dimensions, medium, title, and artist statements (no more than 400 words) sent by e-mail to RWSympArt@lclark.edu.
