Diablo Valley College Art Dept is accepting Open Call entry for “The Art of No” Exhibition September 2013.
“The Art of No!” celebrates the long history and current renaissance of No in art. In a sense, the entirety of avant-garde art is about negativity, contradicting what came before. The idea of No in art really coalesced with the Dadaists during WWI, when nihilism seemed the only sane choice in a world turned upside down by the trauma of war. Throughout the 20th century, No has recurred again and again in art, in feminist, anti-war, social justice, and worker’s rights contexts.
