Call For Entries: Color Block: Works Inspired by Blinky Palermo
Cottonwood Center for the Arts is accepting entries into its upcoming show, Color Block, works inspired by Blinky Palermo, whose brief life produced a body of work that questioned, challenged, and enriched Abstraction and Minimalism in the art world. Artists’ works for this call for entries should avoid imitation of Palermo, but rather celebrate and build on the Abstract Minimalism oeuvre as well as Palermo’s avant garde commentary on modern art. All media will be considered.
Blinky Palermo’s brief life produced a body of work that questioned, challenged, and enriched abstraction and minimalism in the art world of the 1960’s and 70’s. His career began while still a student of Joseph Beuys, when he was inspired by his teacher to ‘change your art by changing yourself.’ In a brashly clever response typical of his Bauhaus education, he changed his name (it was Peter Heisterkamp), a re-branding strategy that set the stage for new discovery.
