DURATION OF EXHIBITION:  April 8, 2024 - June 1, 2024
FOR QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT: Ana Jofre jofrea@sunypoly.edu.

ELIGIBILITY:  Students and groups of students who are currently enrolled at any of the  SUNY schools are eligible to apply.  Faculty and staff at any of the SUNY schools are eligible to apply.

REQUIRED LEGAL FORM:  Applicants must  sign and upload the required Legal Agreement and Permission Form in the designated box within the application .

ABOUT:  The second biennial Broad Ranging Art-tech Exhibition is a curated show hosted by SUNY Polytechnic University on the Utica Campus.  The exhibition will consist of  physical pieces, light and sound installations and virtual works.  

Artists and designers may submit works that align with the theme of Transgression in any media, including but not limited to:

  • Static visual
  • Audio and/or Audio-Visual
  • Interactive installation
  • Interactive media


(noun) an act that goes against a law, rule, or code of conduct;
(verb) to go beyond a boundary or limit.

For this exhibition, we are looking for works that have crossed boundaries in any way. We encourage thinking beyond the taboo or the offensive, and instead seek broad-ranging reflections about transgression.  Consider transgressions in the development of your practice or how your work has challenged the status quo and succeeded (or even failed). Transgressions blaze trails for some and burn bridges for others. How is that duality or dialectic represented in your work?



Submit images of your work along with an artist statement that includes an explanation of the work along with an alt-text description to make your work accessible to people with visual impairments.  Here is a resource that can help you with your image description.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Friday, March 22th,  2024 11:59pm

Applicants will be notified of acceptance by  Friday, March 29, and if successful, emails will follow with logistical information about drop-off and installation.
