Spring SOLOS 2018 Opening Reception & Open Studios
Join us to celebrate the opening of our spring exhibitions! Meet and mingle with the Spring SOLOS 2018 artists, go upstairs to see resident artist Negar Ahkami’s exhibition in the Wyatt Resident Artists Gallery, and stop by our residents’ studios while you are there.
AAC’s SOLOS exhibitions invite emerging and mid-career artists to conceptualize a solo exhibition in one of the AAC’s seven galleries, resulting in seven concurrent one-person shows. For the Spring SOLOS 2018, artists were selected through an open call for proposals evaluated by guest jurors Kate Haw, Director of the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art, and Mika Yoshitake, Assistant Curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. Values that guided the selection of SOLOS artists include diversity of practice and perspective, quality and craftsmanship, and depth of content.
The annual SOLOS exhibitions provide regional artists with a valuable opportunity for exposure and experimentation–and offer the public an equally important opportunity to explore the diversity and vitality of contemporary art in the area.
Spring 2018 SOLOS artists include: Sean Derry, Adam Griffiths, Phaan Howng, Giulia Livi, Nick Primo, and Jerry Truong.
