  • Postcolonial Revenge

    Call for Artists: Post Colonial Revenge


    Deadline: Fri Oct 19, 2018 • 12am
    Artists notified: Wed, Oct 24, 2018
    Entry fee: $15

    Revenge is defined as the “satisfaction obtained by repaying an injury or wrong” or “an opportunity for retaliation; a chance to win after an earlier defeat.” The field of Postcolonial studies emerged as a way to bring forward voices and T/truths that were hidden from master narratives. Postcolonial studies has allowed us to see that Western empires built their foundations on the labor, exploitation and stealing of resources from what are now known as Third-World countries. Today, many communities that are labeled “marginal” in the U.S. are here because of the infliction of violence by Western powers. However, that is not to say that communities that were faced with dispossession or forced to leave their homelands have given in to colonial forces. Postcolonial Revenge is an opportunity to come together to celebrate the win of not giving into a system that enacts injury and violence onto black, brown, indigenous, immigrant, queer, and working-class livelihoods.

    Postcolonial Revenge centers resistance, resilience and resurgence against Western epistemological beliefs. Indigenous, Black, Chicanx, Filipinx, South East/Asian, and Middle Eastern voices are among those that have pushed against Western settler-colonial ideas which center hetero-patriarchal ideals in attempt to eradicate culture, language, and ancestral linage. The works in this show will highlight inter-generational voices that continue to work against settler-colonial oppressive structures pre and post-civil rights. Post-Colonial Revenge will interweave works that deal with resurgence, rage, justice, ancestors and collective healing from inter-generational trauma. The exhibition chooses to highlight these themes, so they can serve as a departure to create a new center, away from colonial structures which sought to destroy us.
