Engaging Artists: New Works in Practice
About the Exhibition Jan 24-Feb 23 Gallery Hours: Tue–Fri, 2–7pm | Weekends by appointment Curated by Melissa Liu
Artists working to inspire social change engage in in-depth processes that often go unseen by the public.
"Engaging Artists: New Works in Practice" is an entry point into the practices of emerging artists who participated in More Art's 2017-18 Engaging Artists Fellowship. The artists in this exhibition enter their work not from the studio, but through other disciplines and occupations: skilled trades, medicine, arts administrative work and community organizing—demonstrating the expanded role of artistic production in everyday contexts. This exhibition is a collaboration between More Art and HERE. While More Art is a visual arts organization and HERE is a theatrical space, these two cultural institutions both facilitate the creation of socially engaged art.
Participating Artists: Vanessa Teran Collantes, Álvaro Franco, Noé Gaytan, Floor Grootenhuis, Bryan Rodriguez, Worker's Art Coalition
