Curated by Jason Clay Lewis, Amelia Biewald, Yizhe Huang, and David Gorman

Submission Deadline: Friday, February 4th, 2022

Exhibition Dates: February 11th – March 13th, 2022

This is a Virtual Online OPEN CALL exhibition that will open at The Royal @ RSOAA on February 11th. Noir is a genre of crime film or fiction characterized by cynicism, fatalism, and moral ambiguity. This will primarily be a black & white exhibition with all types of work being accepted. Artists selected for the exhibition will be included on the RSOAA website and social media platforms.

Film noir is a cinematic term used primarily to describe stylish Hollywood crime dramas, particularly those that emphasize cynical attitudes and motivations. The 1940s and 1950s are generally regarded as the “classic period” of American film noir. Film noir of this era is associated with a low-key, black-and-white visual style that has roots in German Expressionist cinematography. Many of the prototypical stories and much of the attitude of classic noir derive from the hardboiled school of crime fiction that emerged in the United States during the Great Depression.
