Fall SOLOS 2017
Bridging the community with contemporary art is key to AAC’s mission. To achieve this, we bring 14 regional contemporary artists to Arlington each year through our SOLOS series alone!
More than 100 artists living in the Mid-Atlantic Region submitted proposals for this semi-annual exhibition. This year’s jurors were Kate Haw and Mika Yoshitake. Haw is the Director of the Smithsonian Institution’s Archives of American Art, Yoshitake is a Curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
Aptly titled, SOLOS artists are assigned to one of our seven main gallery spaces, where they each mount a self-curated, self-contained exhibition, resulting in a selection of never-before-seen exhibitions. For the first time ever, Fall SOLOS 2017 will feature an entirely female line-up of artists, many of whom explore themes related to feminism, gender, and identity.
Featuring works by: Mary Baum, Atsuko Chirikjian, Catherine Day, Anna Kell, Jen Noone, Mojdeh Rezaeipour, and Julie Wills.
Opening Reception: October 14, 6-9pm
Artist Talk: December 16, 1-3pm
