SOLOS 2020 Artist Talks

Thursday / October 29 / 6pm-7:30pm EST

Join AAC online on Thursday, October 29 at 6pm for artist talks with Tara Gupta, Kim Llerena, and Anne Clare Rogers. The three artists will discuss the solo shows they are presenting as part of SOLOS 2020. The talks will take place on Zoom. The talks are free but registration is required.

Tara Gupta’s surreal and colorful paintings grapple with illness as both a physical experience and a metaphor for the earth in the midst of climate change and other environmental traumas. In American Scrapbook, Kim Llerena constructs a portrait of a country shaped by various invisible systems that manifest themselves in our physical landscape.  Anne Clare Rogers’ A potato in space includes sculptures that blur the boundary between the familiar and the unknown, questioning processes of meaning-making and metaphor.

A second online artist talk event for SOLOS 2020 will take place on November 12 and feature Rebecca Rivas-Rogers, Constance Simon, and Heidi Zenisek.

SOLOS 2020
On view: September 26 to December 19
For SOLOS 2020, AAC presents exhibitions by six contemporary artists who work in a diverse range of media including photography, installation, sculpture, and painting. The exhibitions are part of AAC’s long-running SOLOS program, which presents solo exhibitions and projects by emerging and established artists based in the Mid-Atlantic, selected from an open call for proposals

The six artists included in SOLOS 2020 were selected from an open call for proposals by two accomplished jurors: Terence Washington, formerly of the National Gallery of Art and currently Program Director of NXTHVN, a residency and gallery space in New Haven, Connecticut, and Michael Benevento, director of Current Space in Baltimore, Maryland.
