The Day on Fire Apocalypse in Contemporary Art


The Department of Art & Design at East Tennessee State University invites artists to submit work in any media on the subject of the apocalypse. Any work that directly or indirectly relates to visions of the end of the world, aftermath, nuclear winter, localized images of collapse, upheaval of thought, and post-apocalyptic depictions are welcome in this exhibition that takes a wide-angle perspective to the theme. The end of times has been a preoccupation for artists for centuries – this exhibition expressly planned for 2012 frames this theme at the doorstep of the Mayan and Nostradamus “Dooms Day” prophecies.

Works will be jointly curated and juried by the Slocumb Galleries’ Exhibition Committee.
