Juror: Vivian Chiu

VIVIAN CHIU was born in Los Angeles and emigrated to Hong Kong at the age of three. Her interests in creating objects and the visual arts led her to attend the Rhode Island School of Design (BFA '11 Furniture Design) and Columbia University (MFA '19 Sculpture). With an aptitude for problem solving and a sensitivity towards materials, Vivian utilizes continuous deconstruction and reconstruction to create optical sculptures and explore ideas of visibility and perception.

Vivian has attended residencies such as Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Sculpture Space, Haystack Mountain School, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, the Center for Art in Wood and Penland School of Crafts. She is part of the 2022 American Craft Council Emerging Artists Cohort. She was awarded a 2020 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship in Craft/Sculpture and is a recipient of the 2023-24 VMFA Visual Arts Fellowship in Crafts.

Vivian is currently teaching in the Craft/Material Studies program at Virginia Commonwealth University. She is currently represented by FLXST Contemporary (Chicago, IL). https://www.vivianchiustudio.com/

Submission Details:

You will need an artist statement - 200 word limit in first person when you first register in ArtCall.

1. You do not have to create a portfolio site to enter the show.

2. The way you fill out the form is how it will be shown on the labels, awards, and publicity.

a. Name: Use Capital Letters for the first letters of your name.

b. Prices - DO NOT TYPE IN A COMMA. This produces the wrong price. ArtCall will add the comma automatically

c. Measurements - HEIGHT first, then Width then Depth (H x W x D)


3 images of each piece are required, one of the art without frame, one with frame, and a close detail image (zoomed into a small section of interest). If the art is unframed, only 2 photos are required. 

NOTE: if the work is framed, we must have the outside measurements of the frame (H x W x D). Please do not guess. If we do not have the measurements for the art and/or the framed art, your piece will not be considered to jury. Walls and backgrounds SHOULD NOT SHOW in photos. When taking the digital image please make sure the photo is not at an angle or crooked.


For each 3D, installation, or wearable art entry, submit 3 images: one overall front, one overall rear or sideview, and one detail (zoomed into a small section of interest).

• Detail images must show an important aspect of the artwork. Make sure that both the full-view and detail images are oriented correctly. Please keep backgrounds as unobtrusive as possible

d. Statement regarding the piece of art - The character limit is 300!! This is used for all publicity online and inhouse. Spellcheck it as well as word count it!

e. FYI - You can go back in and add/edit images and edit text until the call ends.

f. Please double check all information. 

After submitting, please go back in and double check your information. Did you enter the required 2 or 3 photos? Is your price correct? Measurements? Is your statement complete? Too long?

VERY IMPORTANT: You can delete and change photos, and change text within each submission up until end-of-call. Do not delete an entire submission and then replace it with a new one--ArtCall will charge you for a new submission!
