Read ETEREA Magazine’s Interview with Tajana Dedic-Starovic
Enjoy the first of ETEREA Magazine’s interviews with the selected artists from their Tri-State Artist Invite:
"People usually say that they love how brave and unusual my work is, so they don’t really mind if something is disturbing or if it should be censored because it speaks to them."

See the ICP PROJECTED: PORTRAITURE AND REPRESENTATION Exhibit
Portraiture and Representation offers images from a number of photographers unified in their participation in Ello, which was founded by a collection of artists and designers in 2013 as a publishing and collaboration platform to connect and support a global community of artists. The show features the work of @anahellphotography, @stefanserbanescu, @bastiaanwoudt, @aartverrips, @elodiemilan3, @dustinthierry, @maltchique, @kelvinkonadu, @relbw, @jadecervetti, @markaghatise, and @civitatestres.
How to View Portraiture and Representation:
During the day, Portraiture and Representation can be viewed on monitors inside the ICP Museum and during evening hours, images are literally “projected” onto the windows of the ICP Museum; they can be viewed from the sidewalk outside the Museum and are most visible after sunset. Check it out in person July 24th-30th.

Submit Your Art to Science Friday
Science Friday has been a trusted name in science journalism for over 25 years, bringing current and compelling science stories to an international audience of millions through public radio, podcast, video, digital, social, events, and educational programming. They're brain fun, for curious people.
This summer, Science Friday is inviting their audience to join them in a re-reading of Stephen Hawking’s popular non-fiction book A Brief History of Time. They’ll be stepping through black holes and wading through fundamental particle soup with young and diverse physicists, authors, artists, and dancers as their docents. Their hope is that the uninitiated will glimpse Hawking’s mind-bending vision of the universe and lean in.
And they want your help.
“We’re looking for artists who can help us inspire the next generation of theoretical physicists, mathematicians, and science communicators by interpreting Hawking’s vivid depictions of the universe with art.
We’ve selected some of Hawking’s most enlightening and concise analogies, explainers, and thought-experiments from A Brief History of Time. We will select and work with six artists to represent these concept-quotes with a high-contrast, simple, color-rich illustrations. Selected artists will receive $400, and their finished works will appear with the inspiring quote on sciencefriday.com and a linked credit to the artist’s portfolio website. Works will be shared and promoted to Science Friday’s social media, newsletter, educator, student, and live event audiences through August and September 2018 and will appear in a free K-12 classroom lesson plan distributed to thousands of educators nationwide for free educational use.”
The commissioned images must appeal to a general audience that includes minors, elderly, incarcerated, non-English-speaking, and laypersons, as well as science enthusiasts whose first encounter with Stephen Hawking may be with your art in a tweet on their phone.
• 6 artists will be selected to create an original illustration that depicts a mind-blowing Stephen Hawking quote about the universe, space, time, gravity, black holes, etc. in their own unique style to size and resolution specs on a three-week turnaround.
• Selected artists will receive $400 and have their work appear alongside the inspiring quote and an artist’s statement on sciencefriday.com. The gallery and selected images will be promoted in Science Friday’s social media, newsletters, educational materials, and radio program.

Each artist will be contacted afterwards for an interview, which will accompany the presentation of their artwork.
