Call for entries - CORROBORATIONS 2018


Exhibition Concept
This exhibition will pair University of South Dakota visual arts and poetry majors in order to create new collaborative work and to both broaden acceptance and appreciation of alternative art disciplines. Up to sixteen pairs will be selected by PhD student Kevin Phillips of the English Department, and Director of the University Art Galleries, Kate Skelly. There will be no set theme to this exhibition, however, all work created as a result of these collaborations must be new and original. Selected pairs are free to choose how they approach the collaborative process.
