Call for Submissions: Aesthetics of Equity: a dialog of urban planning, space

January 18, 2011



We invite you to submit work for the exhibit:

Aesthetics of Equity: a dialog of urban planning, space

 and sustainability 

Curated by : Gia Hamilton of Gris Gris Lab


Exhibition Dates: opens March 18th



We are accepting work from students, emerging and established artist.    All artists must submit a short bio with contact info and a statement about how you will specifically engage viewers  in the concept of spatial equity and socially just urban planning .


“ Aesthetics of Equity: a dialog of urban planning, space and sustainability”  will explore city planning, public space and the creation of a socially just city through design, photography, multimedia, and other 2D and 3D work.   Powerful dynamics at the local, regional, national and international levels filter various values and interests to yield a powerful development logic.  This logic determines the nature of change, its impacts, and most importantly, who benefits and who ultimately pays.  Critical perspectives suggest that change and transformation of cities across the globe, increasingly favors private capital, large institutions and visitors. This bias poses certain challenges to the possibility of building a just and sustainable future for cities. The exhibit is an invitation to consider a broad range of concepts and strategies for rebuilding that can yield urban futures that are both equitable and sustainable. The challenges embedded in seeking such futures are significant
