The St. Louis Artists' Guild is accepting submissions for Displacement & Migration, a national juried exhibit that investigates the current or historic forced or voluntary relocation of individuals or groups of people who no longer inhabit their place of origin. Artists are encouraged to explore the complexities of this theme today and throughout history from a personal perspective. Areas to be considered include slavery, apartheid, war, homelessness, and diaspora/relocation motivated by culture, politics, religion, finance, and climate. Other expressions that expand this theme are welcome.

About the Jurors
Anita Fields is a Native American artist from the U.S. state of Oklahoma. Although her artistic career began later in her life, Fields is nationally recognized for her unique rendering of cultural items in clay. Fields specializes in ceramics, non-functional earthenware, and traditional Osage ribbon work. Some of the museums that have collected Fields’ work include The Heard Museum, the Cowboy and Western Heritage Center, and the Museum of Art and Design. Her work has also been included in exhibitions such as the National Museum of the American Indian at the Smithsonian titled “Who Stole the Tepee,” and the “Legacy of the Generations: American Indian Women Potters” at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Basil Kincaid is a renown African American Visual Artist and activist from St. Louis. His artwork addresses concepts of identity, place, race and environmentalism, with focus on issues facing the poor and people of color. He seeks to shine light on these communities by bringing attention to abandoned spaces, decaying neighborhoods, and the people that live in them. His work is site-specific and comprised of found, discarded, or donated materials with relevance to the place of cultivation. This methodology is an investigation of how waste is a reflection of lived experience.
