Call for Artists

University of Minnesota's Regis Center for Art is seeking art for an exhibition in the Quarter Gallery. 

There will be a exhibition on art and labor in the Quarter Gallery at the Regis Center for Art this spring, curated and juried by University of Minnesota undergraduate student Anna Meteyer.


About the Exhibit

The exhibition will explore the role of human labor within, outside of, and in opposition to today's capitalist system, both on a global scale and within our own communities, throughout history and in the present day. The exhibition aims to both cry out in solidarity with those suffering exploitation under capitalism, and also celebrate the self-determination and resistance exercised among laborers who stand against the system, whose struggle has defined laborers as powerful political agents throughout history.

Submission Details

Artists whose work addresses one or more of these themes are invited to submit 3 examples of their work for consideration. Send an email to with the following information: name, 100 word artist statement, 100 word artist biography, and three examples of work in digital (jpg) files, and an image list including title, the date created, the medium, and the dimensions.

Deadline for submissions is December 31, 2013

The call for artists is published on MN Artists

Companion Exhibit

The companion exhibit will feature related historical and documentary materials from Gorman Rare Art Book Collection as well as from other University of Minnesota Libraries.  This companion exhibit will be organized by Anna, Arts & Architecture Collections Intern, Lindsay Keating and Arts & Architecture Librarian, Deborah Boudewyns.
