Lethal Ladies: Women of True Crime

Lethal Ladies: Women of True Crime

The Aesthetics of  Research Columbia College Chicago Library is currently seeking submissions in all media & formats for our exhibition, LETHAL LADIES: THE WOMEN OF TRUE CRIME.  As both perpetrators and participants in our shared cultural fascination with the subject matter, women have made vast contributions to true crime-related art forms.   From murders to heists, deceptions to general unruly behavior, we will explore the patriarchal structures  and societal constraints/expectations that true crime, and its subject matter, subvert & transform.  Further, how we as artists and consumers create and further these conversations within the genre.

We are looking for both 2-D  and 3-D art, installations, text, and objects. Accepted artists will also be offered the opportunity to particpate in a panel discussion on  October 3rd  to talk about their work, resources, inspirations, etc.

Deadline for Submissions: September 15

Exhibit Opens: October 3
