Competitions Black & White Juried Art Show NYC

Brooklyn Waterfront Artists CoalitionNew York, United States

Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: May 10; May 31, 2017 – The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition announces our 3rd Black & White National Juried art show opening July 29, 2017. We are privileged to have as our juror Alison Hokanson, Assistant Curator for Nineteenth-Century European Painting at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

We bathe in the beauty of color and spin thousands of words describing the experience that the cone cells transmit to our brain. In reality, they are not nearly as numerous as our rods, the cells that register light and dark, the black and white of our experience. Our rods are less articulated in language; fewer words are generated to describe that experience. Black & white is primal, the underneath, the foundation, of the opulence of color; black & white is where we register motion and, when the cones do not have sufficient light, our rods optimize our survival in the night woods. Black & White intends to explore this underground of survival and few words.

Ours is a truly unique gallery—a massive Civil War-era warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront in Brooklyn, NY. Its enormous space affords us the opportunity to exhibit really huge work, and we welcome it. We will be using 8,000 square feet for this show, and look forward to exhibiting artist’s work from all around the country, work in all sizes, subjects, and media, except film (it’s almost completely wide open).

Open to all residents of the U.S. and its Territories 18 years of age or older. This is a juried exhibition for artists working in all traditional and non-traditional 2D and 3D media, including film/video when part of an installation.

Alison Hokanson is an Assistant Curator for Nineteenth‐Century European Painting at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. She holds a BA from Brown University and an MA and PhD from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, where she studied Minimalism before writing her dissertation on Belgian Realism and Symbolism. Her recent projects include… see more on Prospectus
