Call For Entry: Memento Mori

International Submission Deadline: July 15th, 2023 11:59 PM PST

Memento Mori is an exhibition that focuses on the themes of life and death. The Latin phrase "memento mori" means "remember that you will die." Vanitas is a notable example, juxtaposing symbols such as skulls, wilting flowers, and wealth to represent the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death. Memento mori can be a powerful reminder of the fleeting nature of our presence, a source of comfort and inspiration, and a reminder that demise is a natural part of life and that we should make the most of our time on this mortal coil. Show us, what makes life worth living, and how does one cope with the inevitability of death?

Memento Mori is an international juried group exhibition open to artists ages 18 and older. All forms of two-dimensional, traditional, and non-conventional art media (e.g., digital and film photography, video, oil painting, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, collage, drawing media such as graphite, charcoal, pencils, pen and ink, arts and crafts, etc.) are welcome for submission.
