Dirt, a substance so common that it is known to all regardless of location. It may be dust, soil, earth, clay, loam, grime, silt, filth or mud. It is a substance reviled by some as a marker of poor hygiene, or cherished by others who grow plants. Dirt is waste, excrement, rubbish, bacteria, it is also a humble foundation for mighty buildings. In the home or laboratory a constant battle with dirt is waged. This exhibition will expand the dialogue on dirt. This open call is for artists whose work uses dirt or dust as the medium, or refers to dirt in any manner.
This group exhibition will be accompanied by an exhibition catalog.
