Crossing the Line: Corcoran College of Art and Design Alumni Exhibit

VIEW MORE INFO

Fee: $40.00 (Corcoran Gallery of Art + College of Art and Design)
Event Dates: 4/14/12 - 5/20/12
Entry Deadline: 1/27/12
The Corcoran College of Art and Design is pleased to announce an open call to our alumni for applications to their National – International Alumni Exhibition. “Crossing the line” is the theme for the Juried Exhibition that will be on view in Gallery 15 of the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC from April 14 to May 20 2012. The juror Barbara O'Brien, Chief Curator and Director of Exhibitions and Collections at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art has selected the theme and describes it this way. “Crossing the Line implies momentum, intention, a choice, an action. The line can be architectural as in the threshold between spaces – inside to outside or moving from private space to public – opening up a conversation of siting works selected for the exhibition in a setting adjacent to the gallery, perhaps at the 17th Street entrance or at other locations between the gallery and the college. The line can be perceived as divisions between people and cultures – a! continuing conversation regarding the validity of the “self” and the “other”. Is this theoretical line still valid? The line can be formal as in crosshatch – intersecting parallel lines that create shading; conceptual as in the definition of a medium and the desire to strictly or loosely define an artistic form. Finally, Crossing the Line can imply questions of propriety or social norms. What taboos remain in an art world where seemingly anything goes? Might not a reinterpretation of the great traditions of the art world -painting on canvas, drawing on paper, casting in bronze, copper plate etching - be a radical statement for our times? Artists are invited to consider the broad concept of the theme--the theme of crossing the line is open to interpretation. Recent works in all media are encouraged. ELIGIBILITY: Open to all graduates of the Corcoran College of Art and Design.
