Dodomu Gallery Open Call

OPEN CALL: Tactile Sublime

dodomu gallery is excited to announce an open call for artists to participate in our upcoming art exhibition – Tactile Sublime. The show will run from June 6 – July 18, 2024 on our website.

The essence of art lies not only in visual aesthetics but also in the experience it invokes through tactile sensations. Our proposed exhibition seeks to delve into the realm of the tactile sublime, where texture, grit, and physicality of materials converge to create an immersive and sensorial experience. 

The term “tactile sublime” draws inspiration from the philosophical concept of the sublime, which traditionally explores the awe-inspiring and transcendent aspects of nature. However, in this context, we focus on the tactile qualities of materials as a gateway to evoke similar feelings of wonder and transcendence. Contemporary representational and abstract work will be considered. Artists are invited to submit their work in various media of drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, sculpture, ceramics, textiles, photography, digital and mixed media.
