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
