The MAC is calling for submissions that respond to the theme of an upcoming exhibition, entitled Cosmic to Corporeal: Contemporary Queer Performance Practices, curated by Liss LaFleur and on view September 21 through November 9, 2019.

Cosmic to Corporeal is a juried exhibition which will explore performance practices specifically in relation to the queer body. We are particularly interested in the relationship of the body to technology, and invite submissions of all media with an emphasis on performance, performance documentation, performance texts, video, and time-based works. This exhibition seeks to provide an international, intergenerational, and intersectional exchange of artists who are working to redefine the constructs of performance art and identity.
