Calls for Politically Incorrect Art Show
Marsha Woodhouse, Chicago, Ill.

Deadline: July 1, 2005

Politically Incorrect Show! Submit now! One of art's functions is dialogue. In recent decades we have witnessed the transformation of that dialogue. We are at point where art is no longer allowed to say what it really wants to. Rather than expressing diverse ideas, the mere expression of certain politically correct ideas has become the standard. The art has become banal, repeating the same supposedly shocking ideas over and over. Call for new ideas. For more info contact
