12th Annual International MFA/MA Exhibition | Call for Work

Every year Manifest offers an opportunity just for graduate students to exhibit at our gallery in Cincinnati, OH. This twelfth installment of the Master Pieces project will continue to reveal the intensity and professionalism of students working towards their terminal academic degree in the field of art or design. Often the most exceptional work comes out of these artists' immersion in their culture of study and intellectual pursuit. Manifest's goal, therefore, is to select works on an annual basis that in the truest sense of the word are contemporary masterpieces - in other words works that set the standard of quality that the artist is expected to maintain throughout his or her professional career and justify the degree of Master. The full-color hardcover Manifest Exhibition Annual publication will serve as a visual documentation of these artists' own benchmarks for years to come. Three of Manifest's exhibit spaces will be devoted to the Master Pieces 12 exhibition. Participants are eligible for the end-of-year Manifest Grand Jury Prize ($2,500). $25 for one entry, $40 for two or three entries, and $10 per each additional entry. Deadline: May 7, 2018. More info. Contact: email or call (513) 861-3638.
