Call for entries: March Synthetic Zero Event

The Synthetic Zero events are a series of informal, DIY-style art events focusing on high quality experimental and contemporary work in different media. We typically do not have a specific theme for each event but instead work with ideas that emerge from the interaction between submitted work and curatorial interests. By working this way, we hope the events reflect back the dialogue and practice of artists involved and create evocative encounters for the audience. In the past, a diverse set of curators has chosen work by artists from around the world, including Miranda July, Yoshi Sodeoka, Zoe Leonard, Hector Canonge, Benton Bainbridge, and many others. Prior event programs can be found here.

To be considered, send the following to

Link to artist website AND/OR Artist Statement
Still Images
Up to 5 jpegs
If submitting video:
Links to video on Vimeo, YouTube, or downloadable video files
This event is curated by Mitsu Hadeishi.

The competition theme is “Blue.” Shades, spaces, feelings of blue. Show us what blue means to you.

The competition theme is “Blue.” Shades, spaces, feelings of blue. Show us what blue means to you.Call for artists: ArtAscent is now accepting submissions for the international art competition themed “Blue.”

All work is evaluated based on the vision as relates to the submission theme. Submissions including diverse interpretations of the theme will be considered. The beauty of art is that 100 artists can look at the same thing and interpret it in completely unique ways. That’s what can make it breathtaking. When you enter the competition, there is an ‘artists statement’ portion where you can provide context for your art and briefly explain how it relates to the theme. Share your interpretation and you might win a cash prize, be professionally reviewed and profiled, and/or be published in ArtAscent Journal of Art & Literature!
