Brooklyn Artists Gym: MATTER

Deadline: May 29, 2012 (EMAIL)

Brooklyn Artists Gym

Brooklyn, NY
Opening Reception June 30, 2012

The exhibition “Matter” aims to create conversations in terms of the traditional and nontraditional materials used in constructing the artworks. Possible points/questions to consider: How does the history of the material effect the interpretation of the piece? How is the material transformed or re-appropriated through the artists’ process? Does the work seem/feel uncomfortable, divine, inappropriate, cute, humorous, sad, nostalgic; does it represent your relationship with your boyfriend or girlfriend, is it reminiscent of a specific building or season, does it make you hungry? What meaning can one make based on the structure, pattern, texture, color, form, and weight?

Open call for all mediums (sculptural/3D media, video, performance, and surface design are highly encouraged)

2D /3D work no larger than 8’ in direction
