Note: dependent on the number of entries, only one piece of work may be selected for the exhibition. Each applicant must submit an artist statement and each submission needs a description of work.

This event is curated by Rebel Lens, on-the-ground activists using photo and video to document social movements in Baltimore, in collaboration with a number of other great artists in Baltimore.

The exhibit will feature the work of Baltimore-based activists connecting ideas of the violence of capitalism, colonialism, and the racist/fascist state both locally here in Baltimore and globally. The theme focuses on the work being done to dismantle walls/bans/borders of oppression, whether through physical state walls, walls of a prisons, walls of stigma or institutional walls. The goal is to tell the story through the eyes of those on the ground doing the work. It is a call to activists for their photo and video documentation of movements they are a part of, along with art made made in response to those issues and movements, or any format you choose to respond to these issues.

Please note, this is a benefit exhibit, so artist are encouraged to donate a portion of the sale of their art back to an organization doing the work on the ground.
