Call for Art Fountain Street gallery in Boston is now accepting submissions for its 2023 international call for art titled, About Face. About Face invites commentary on artistic, personal, and cultural identity, as much as it is about the politics of authority, representation, inclusion, and exclusion.

This call is an open question that asks artists to interpret the concept widely when selecting works to submit.
