AG Gallery is accepting entries for its exhibition: ?King and Queen? +Theme of the exhibition The theme for this open call is ?King and Queen.? Artists are asked to re-think the symbolic meanings of the archetype of a king and/or a queen and expand on the idea to create an artwork of its own interpretation. Kings and queens are seen as one of the strongest, most influential, authority figures. They are generally symbolized by absolute power, monarchy, and prosperity. Looking back at history, sometimes their leadership led them to be great heroes or ruthless tyrants. The theme can explore the realms of imagination or depict the realities of the conflict that occurs in such a hierarchy like prosperity and corruption, the relationship between a king and a queen, with those figures and the people, or so on. In this open call of ?King and Queen,? artists will have the freedom to interpret those royal characters and create something original. It is open to all mediums. +Eligibility The exhibition is open to all artists, 18 year old or older, working and living in US.
