Spring SOLOS 2018 Opening Reception & Open Studios

Saturday, April 14, 6-9pm

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.

Liz Ensz: NO GRIDS NO MASTERS

March 30 - May 26, 2024

NO GRIDS NO MASTERS: a Post-Cartesian Experiment is an exploration and contestation of the grid and the structured set of worldviews that are embedded in it. Incorporating digital and traditional weaving, sculpture, found objects, and transformed cast materials, the installation reflects the artist’s intense engagement with material.

Artist Talk: Clarissa Pezone

Saturday / May 18 / 3pm-4pm

Pushing the possibilities of clay, Clarissa Pezone creates human and animal figures that are lifelike yet suffused with a sense of mystery. At this talk with the artist, she will discuss The Woods of No Name, her solo exhibition on view at the museum through May 26.
