Innovators and History Makers
2016, for many, was a year of great loss in popular culture – Prince, Emilio Navaira, Muhammad Ali, David Bowie, and many more. These losses inspired the theme for this year’s Dia de los Muertos Exhibition: remembering people who have made a difference in our lives and in the world.
K Space Contemporary invites artists to commemorate their favorite deceased artists, actors, poets, writers, musicians, politicians, revolutionaries, innovators and history-makers. This theme is open to interpretation. Works of art may be symbolic, conceptual, stylized, or naturalistic. We encourage contemporary concepts and originality
Register Early! Send an email with “DDLM Exhibition” in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, number of works you are submitting, and name of the person(s) that the artwork memorializes. To maintain variety in this exhibition, the number of works per celebrity (like Prince, Selena, Frida Kahlo, etc.) will be limited. Note: We are no longer accepting works in honor of Selena and David Bowie, so please pick another inspiration!
