BRIC announces an open call exhibition, including work by Dutch artist Hans van Meeuwen. OPEN (C)ALL: The Artist’s Studio will be presented in the Gallery of BRIC House. The exhibition is on view from Wednesday, January 14 until Sunday, February 8.
Registry artists may submit a single work of art representing their current practice. The exhibition is an open call and as such artists are able to submit any work of their choosing, that is new and exciting to their practice.
Artists will also submit photographs of their studios and work spaces, which will be shown alongside the exhibition as part of a special installation by guest artist Wendy Richmond. This inaugural open call takes on the theme of “The Artist’s Studio” to reverse the existing relationship that the artists have with BRIC’s Registry. Rather than being represented online digitally, the works of art will be now be manifested physically in the gallery; the studio will be represented digitally. While the search and query functions might not translate into our physical realm, the myriad art works in the Gallery will show, at true scale, the depth and breathe of talent in Brooklyn.
Two prizes will be awarded at the conclusion of the exhibition:
Best In Show – Prize will go to one artwork of exceptional merit, selected by BRIC’s Contemporary Art team. Artist will be awarded $300 and have a solo exhibition of their work at BRIC House during summer 2015.
Viewer’s Choice – Prize will go to one artwork of exceptional merit, selected by the public. Artist will be awarded $100 and a profile of their practice on the BRIC Blog.
