Call for Participation: Emotional Numbness: The impact of war on the human psyche and ecosystems

July 20, 2020

Women Eco Artists Dialog invites current members to submit artworks to an international group exhibition titled: Emotional Numbness: The impact of war on the human psyche and ecosystems.

The exhibition focus is the impact of war on environments, and war’s effects on inhabitants of war zones. Recent escalating tensions between Iran and the United States is creating an increase in anxiety about potential war between these countries.  Thus, the goal of the exhibition is to create a platform to share, meet, discuss, and cross borders, by exhibiting art which considers the impacts of war and the varying relationships between Iran and the United States. We believe art has the ability to affect perceptions, develop meaningful dialogue, and bring awareness about critical issues to the public.


The exhibition has two venues. The primary physical venue is Platform 3, an independent art space run by Iranian artists, located in the center of Tehran, Iran. The secondary venue is an online showing on the WEAD website.

The year 2020 marks 100 years of Women’s Right to Vote in the United States. The American suffragette story, while ultimately successful, is not without failures and criticism. Now, 100 years later, we are experiencing a marked awareness of and spread towards social equality and related issues across genders, ethnicity, beliefs and preferences. Women Eco Artists Dialog (WEAD) is a strong example of women creatives coming together to share and provide opportunities for female identified artists working with ecological and social justice content. In this regard we are holding our Feat to the Fire. That is, we are employing art as a means to fulfill the promise of having our voices count. 


Exhibition juror, Jan Rindfleisch has focused on community building as an artist, educator, curator and author. From 1978 to 1985, she taught art and art history at De Anza College, and in 1979 began a 32 year journey as executive director/curator of The Euphrat Museum of Art in Cupertino, California. She is the author of Roots and Offshoots: Silicon Valley’s Arts Community, 2017; and co-author of Creative Power: The Art and Activism of Ruth Tunstall Grant, 2019.
