“What Can’t Be Cured Must Be Endured” – Rutgers University – Paul Robeson Galleries – NJ
Deadline: January 15, 12. Since the time of the ancient Egyptians, the history of western art has been littered with depictions of medicine and healing — a topic which continues to inspire artists to this day. This exhibition explores the artistic representation of the frailty of the human form, when all is not well and how people have coped. Traditional Western discourses generally focus on the detection of damage or illness in the body, the diagnosis, and the application of relevant treatments, hopefully cures and recovery. Other approaches may explore ideas of ritualistic or spiritual responses to the notion of illness, remedies outside the mainstream, and interventions to prevent illness. Artists whose work explores ideas about medicine and healing are encouraged to submit proposals for an exhibition that encompasses a broad array of responses to these themes. Exhibition will be on display October 2012 – January 2013. How to submit: http://andromeda.rutgers.edu/artgallery/opportunities/index.html

It may be that they look at the physical and psychological notions of home (or neighborhoods) or specific rooms within the home. Or ideas about US utopian suburbia or homes in other countries, dolls houses or haunted houses, and the where/what of the many places that various people call home.
