Calling Artists: Afterlife

The Chinese Culture Center requests submissions for Afterlife, an exhibition of artists’ works relating to Chinese views on death and memorializing. Works should reflect Chinese traditions of death rites and rituals and address the concept of life after death, as the artist interprets it. Afterlife will highlight ancestor veneration, offerings, and tomb sweeping, which are customs of the Ching Ming festival held each April. The display will focus especially on works illustrating transitions and commenting on spirituality. In addition, submissions incorporating digital or virtual arts are encouraged, and will reflect the idea of alternate realities existing simultaneously.

Selected artworks will be exhibited at The CCC online gallery is a venue with global access, reflecting vibrant, diverse and complex views on Chinese culture through the innovative new genre of virtual communities. Exceptional artwork will be selected for a physical exhibition at a CCC community partner, in addition to the online display.

舊金山中華文化中心將在2009年三月以「來生」(After Life)為題策劃網路展,號召全球有心人(不限華裔)只要對中國的清明文化或來生概念提出獨到的詮釋、以藝術作品作為表現者,皆歡迎至網路大顯身手。
