Vox Populi is happy to announce an open call for VOX XII – our twelfth annual juried exhibition of emerging artists, which will take place July 1st – July 31st 2016. The deadline for submissions is Sunday May 08, 2016.
Vox Populi is particularly interested in highlighting work in all media that pushes boundaries in terms of form and content, is ambitious and timely, and is experimental and risk-taking.
