Theme: Amos Eno Gallery is currently seeking artists to apply for an upcoming show of work that explores guns and gun violence. Guns are accepted as a method of keeping "Peace" while at the same time widely acknowledged as instruments of chaos when used outside of state control. And yet, access to guns in other cultures is a sign of autonomy and resistance to oppression. Art may be the best way to explore this multivalence, hence, "The Gun Show".

*All who apply will have at least one work included in the show.

Curator: Mary Gagler, independent curator and director of Mikhail Zakin Gallery and Amos Eno Gallery.

Terms: Open to All Media. Sculpture stands and multimedia equipment must be provided by the artist. Artists must be available to deliver and retrieve their work on the appointed days. If shipping is necessary, all shipping costs are the responsibility of the artist. Shipped work must include a pre-paid return-shipping label or will not be exhibited. Amos Eno Gallery receives 35% commission on all sales.
