Samuel Beckett conference: Lyon College calls for art submissions

Lyon College will host the Samuel Beckett and Nature International Conference Friday, Oct. 16, through Sunday, Oct. 18. The art department is calling for works created by Lyon faculty, staff, alumni and students inspired by Beckett’s drama, fiction, poetry, screenplays or personal correspondences.

Pieces must be submitted via email to James.Berry@lyon.edu with the subject line “Samuel Beckett.” The email must include the following: medium, size, title, artist name and date of creation.

All submissions must also include the name of Beckett’s work that inspired the piece. All mediums are open for submission. Wall-based work must be ready to hang. Pedestal pieces must be ready to present without loose or hazardous material present.

The deadline for submission is Friday, Aug. 21, 2020. Notification of accepted work will be sent via email by Aug. 23. Accepted work must be delivered to the Kresge Gallery at Lyon College by Sept. 5.

The Juried Show will be displayed alongside Ray Klimek’s “Carbon,” an exhibition of photography inspired by Beckett and his philosophy. The reception date will be announced closer to the conference.
