Hidden Cities
2011 National WCA Juried Exhibition

Prospectus:

"Hidden Cities" - No matter our place in society, we all have our Hidden City , a place of refuge from gender, race, class and sexual exclusions, a place that shapes the feminist viewpoint. Some cities, like wrapped boxes, conceal unexpected gifts, others are riddles and lyrical abstractions. These are performative spaces where we may imagine retribution for injustices, righting wrongs or conversely, delving into the dark side. Artists are invited to explore their idea of their Hidden City, real or imagined, in an array of media. The theme may be broadly interpreted from an activist, political or personal context. Convince the viewer of its viability, a live space filled with passion and imagination.

ABOUT THE JUROR: Lisa Phillips, Director of the New Museum, NYC

Lisa Phillips

was appointed Director of the New Museum in December 1998, and arrived in April 1999. She is the second person to occupy that post in the museum's 30 year history. Since it's founding in 1977, the New Museum has had a unique role in the New York art world as a leading destination for new art and new ideas and is Manhattan 's only dedicated contemporary art museum. She lectures on contemporary art at museums throughout the world and has served as a Visiting Critic at Yale University and as a panelist and juror for the National Endowment for the Arts, New York City Public Art Commission, and the Fulbright Fellowship Review Committee.

Under Ms. Phillips direction, it is respected internationally for the adventurousness and global scope of its curatorial program. In 2003, with the Board, she initiated a major capital campaign to fund a new building project that resulted in a 60,000 square foot new world class cultural destination which opened in 2007 designed by the cutting edge firm, SANAA. In late 2007, the New Museum opened on the Bowery, having raised over $64 million and having established an endowment for the first time in the Museum's history. She has more than doubled the New Museum's income and membership; increased profile and visibility through higher quality programming, rebranding, and marketing initiatives; expanded Board from fifteen to thirty-eight members; developed long term partnerships with corporations like Target, Altoids, and Bloomberg LP; dramatically expanded education and youth programs; and took on Rhizome, a new media organization as an affiliate.

Prior to joining the New Museum , Phillips, was a curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art. She organized such landmark exhibitions as "The American Century Part II: Art and Culture" (1999), "Beat Culture and the New America: 1950-1965" (1995), "Frederick Kiesler" (1989), and "Image World: Art and Media Culture" (1989). She presided over mid-career surveys of Richard Prince (1992), Terry Winters (1992), and Cindy Sherman (1987), in addition to overseeing the 1997 Biennial Exhibition and serving on the curatorial team for each Biennial between 1985 and 1993.

FEB 2011 JURIED EXHIBITION “INTIMACY”

ARC Gallery is a non-profit, alternative space run by a collective of women artists since its inception in 1973. ARC is proud to be hosting “INTIMACY” a group exhibition juried by ANDREA GREEN, Director of the Visiting Artists Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Previously, Green was Associate Curator at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis where she curated the exhibitions Janaina Tsch├Ąpe: Melantropics, Laylah Ali: Painting and Drawings, and co-curated Contemporary Masterworks: Saint Louis Collects and Alexander Ross: Survey.


Deadline for Submissions: December 5, 2010

All submissions are to be by email to info@arcgallery.org


This juried exhibition aims to explore the notion of “intimacy” as it affects art-making. How can feelings be represented in the formal expression of art? “Intimacy” can be about the sense of belonging-a sense that you are not alone in the world, that others are literate in your thoughts and feelings. “Intimacy” can be an attachment to a person

or thing that allows you to remain tethered to the world. This juried exhibition aims to explore how notions of intimacy can inform artistic practices and how art can portray the many aspects of intimacy, including, but not limited to, relationships between people, people and things, creator and object, individual and environment, private and public. We would like the entries to consider ideas of: scale, familiarity, proximity, closeness, tenderness, attachment, (inner or inmost nature), being knowledgeable about. While we welcome work that engages intimacy as subject matter, we are primarily interested in investigations of intimacy as a concept in art-making. Artists should examine not only the meanings of intimacy, but its expression in formal, social, social and political contexts.


Open to all artists working in any media.

On-line application. To download prospectus for “Intimacy” follow this link:
