Open call for creatives at any stage of their careers to submit work for the online exhibition The Other Side, curated and hosted by the anonymous waves White Page Gallery. The exhibition explores the themes of alienation, isolation and loneliness and poses the questions: What effect does new technology and political systems have on these conditions? What impact does the prevalence of these conditions have on a coherent society?
'In the final analysis alienation is, among other things a response to the frustration created by the lack of meaning in modern society.” Paul Hollander
“Without alienation, there can be no politics.” Arthur Miller
“There is only one way left to escape the alienation of present day society: to retreat ahead of it; every old language is immediately compromised, and every language becomes old once it is repeated.” Roland Barthes
“I don't want to express alienation. It isn't what I feel. I'm interested in various kinds of passionate engagement. All my work says be serious, be passionate, wake up.” Susan Sontag
The White Page Gallery Network is a new culture for art curatorial practices based on the values of sharing, collaborations and openess. The White Page Gallery is a decentralized network made of independent galleries run by people, such as artists and curators but not limited to those art professional figures, on their very own websites.
Submissions close August 31st 2020 and the exhibition will launch later this year. More information and submission form can be found at the anonymous waves White Page Gallery website page.
