CHROMA: Submissions due February 21, 2020!

SEEKING TIME-BASED MEDIA (FILM, VIDEO, NEW MEDIA, ANIMATION, ETC) FROM WOMEN OF COLOR AND FEMME-IDENTIFIED PEOPLE OF COLOR.

CHROMA is a new screening event in response to Women’s Equality Day and in celebration of Women’s History Month.

2020 marks the 100 year anniversary of the day white women in America gained the right to vote. However, it is often misinterpreted as the day all women in America received the right to vote. Throughout the echoes of history, black and brown women were barred from many opportunities and spaces. Female/Femme artists of color still face some of these same barriers in the contemporary world of art and design.

In response, ExTV wishes to host our first ever CHROMA screening, a screening showcasing time-based work from women of color and femme-identified people of color. We hope that through this event we can showcase diverse voices from the margins in our community and use this opportunity to uplift their voices and work.

CHROMA Screening Date: Friday, March 6th, 2020 // 5pm // Maclean 1307 (Flaxman Screening Room)

What kind of work is ExTV looking for?
Any video, film, animation, new media work, or time-based media that can be visually screened. You can submit more than one work and it can be any genre from video performance to video documentation of a sculpture to video blogs to experimental short films! To clarify, we are not looking specifically for identity-based artwork. We will accept work investigating whatever the maker is interested in.

Who can apply?
We are specifically seeking work from women-identified and femme-identified artists of color at SAIC. This can include undergraduate/graduate students, alumni, faculty, and staff. If you have further questions about CHROMA, our submissions, or have questions about any of our other events, you can email us at extv@saic.edu.
