Call to Artists Chicago

Casa Duno presents Undomesticated

Submission Deadline: May 22, 2011

Exhibition Description

The artists in Undomesticated approach everyday objects in ways that disrupt the traditional notions of function and form. They re-imagine designed objects, obstructing function altogether. Through modifying commonplace objects drawn from the domestic sphere, the works serve as reinterpretations of design structures while retaining semblances of original form. This allows the viewer to make a distinct connection between the designed object and the art object.

Undomesticated aims to bring attention to the relationship people have with objects and how the dynamic changes when the objects shift from “everyday” to art and from the home to the gallery.

What We’re Looking For

We are looking for 3-D works that re-imagine everyday, designed objects for an exhibition in the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival. If you feel your work touches on the concepts mentioned in the exhibition description, we encourage you to submit.


everyday, sculpture, domestic, design, products, mass-production, commonplace, surreal, conceptual, form and function, assemblage, found objects
