Call for Submissions: Planes in the Sky

Planes in the Sky seeks art that deals with human progress and discovery of the past & future.

Themes may include modern science, digital evolution, evolving architecture, stargazing, the control of nature and the origin of life.

Plane in the Sky Call for Art - Compressed (Base)The show highlights how advancements alter the landscape. We look at layers of technology over time, the way a new era edits the old. Work that shows change and modernization of an old world are encouraged.

How does technology alter the human and natural landscape? How will we as a species evolve and our bodies change over time? Planes in the Sky queries the significance and consequences of human progress.

What does innovation really mean, and how do we live with ingenuity? Is progress synonymous with advancement? Is innovation meant to happen chronologically? How do we build upon archaic infrastructure to make it current?

Planes in the Sky invites submissions of work which considers, presents, and questions the idea of progress, process, and advancement. Art expressing the nature of discovery are encouraged. Guest curated by Renée Ricciardi.

Submit your work here until March 26. For more information, please contact Leah Triplett Harrington, FPAC’s Director of Programs & Exhibitions, at
