CALL FOR ARTISTS - Raising the Stereotype

Submission Deadline: July 14

Exhibition: October 4 – October 29, 2011 (TBC)

"Raising the Stereotype"; an exhibition dedicated to deliver a message from the Arab youth to the rest of the world.With the constant bombardment of media into our daily lives, it is easy for one to develop certain stereotypes about different races, religions, and cultures. Muslims and Arabs are among those who have been overshadowed by generalizations that are mostly inaccurate assumptions. There is no one to blame, but we owe it to ourselves and to the world to raise those stereotypes and project the true essence of who we are, how we live, and what we stand for.Art is a form of expression, a unified language. Art is a message delivered in a creative manner.Express yourself. Break the stereotype.

If you are an aspiring or emerging Arab artist interested in creating your own unique visual commentary on this exhibition’s concept, please email

BEFORE July 14 with your CV and some samples of your previous works.
