Call for Entries: Word Art | Works Inspired By Text

Artists’ works for this call for entries must integrate at least one word into the piece. All media will be considered.

Word art describes a category of text-based, postmodernist art practiced by several contemporary artists since the 1950s. This type of artmaking encompasses work that includes words or phrases as its primary artistic component. In fact, text-based imagery featuring words and phrases has appeared as a featured element in a variety of different media for centuries including painting, sculpture, lithography, and screenprinting.

Many artists use text to explore a feeling or idea with a word, a word’s phonetic breakdown, a phrase, grammatical structure, or utilize automatic writing styles in posters, books, journals, minimalism and more. In many ways, word art changed the spectrum of art making evolving from absurdist literature into a highly admired practice of contemporary art.

Artists’ works for this call for entries must integrate at least one word into the piece. All media will be considered.
