As part of an ongoing commitment to promote challenging, innovative practices in the visual arts, this exhibition's open framework serves as a catalyst for a multitude of approaches and media. Accepted works will be exhibited in the Monroe Avenue Gallery of UICA, from April 2–July 31, 2010. This will be the final show at UICA’s current facility. Don’t miss this opportunity to exhibit your work before we move to the new UICA, located on the southwest corner of Division and Fulton. Applications due January 15.

 
The Oxford American Dictionary defines displacement as follows:
– The moving of something from its place or position
– The removal of someone or something by someone or something else that takes their place
– The enforced departure of people from their homes, typically because of war, persecution, or natural disaster
– The amount by which a thing is moved from its normal position
– The occupation by a submerged body or part of a body of a volume that would otherwise be occupied by a fluid
– The amount or weight of fluid that would fill such a volume
 
Using these definitions as a point of departure, the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA) seeks artists to submit entries for dis.place.ment. Artists can download a prospectus at http://uica.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=Page.viewPage&pageId=520&parentID=476&nodeID=1
