Remold: Call for Submissions for the MCC’s 2024 Group Show

Call for Submissions for the MCC’s 2024 Juried Show

Submission deadline: October 1st, 2023 at midnight

Remold engages with the idea of craft transforming our very being, taking the intuitive knowledge that it imbues within our bodies to extend and alter the state of humanness. Remold seeks to investigate this by looking at the organic, fleshy and bodily language of craft and how it can create new possibilities and reimagine the ways in which we make ourselves into ourselves.


This can include:

– Clothing, costume, fashion etc.

– Wearable art, masks, jewelry etc.

– Works that directly relate to the body, transformation and/or somatic experiences


Questions to consider:

– How we use craft to come to know ourselves? What makes craft implicitly human?

– How do we see ourselves  through craft?

– How do we make ourselves into ourselves?

– Tacit knowledge is “knowledge we have, and know we have, but nonetheless cannot put into words”. How do we use craft as a way to channel implicit knowledge about ourselves?

– How can we use craft as an aid in our own becoming?

– How can we use it to change ourselves?

– How do we use craft to perform as ourselves or as someone else to the world?

– How can we use craft to embrace being and all that comes along with it?

– How can/does craft function within the body and as an object that is separate from it?



– Submission deadline: October 1st, 2023 at midnight

– Results will be sent out by October 18th, 2023

– Successful artists must be able to provide catalogue info by November 6th, 2023 (image of work, artist bio, and wall label information)
