Spring SOLOS 2017

On View: April 8 - June 11, 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. Jurors Sarah Newman, Independent Curator, and José Ruiz, Co-Director of Present Co. (NY), Director of Furthermore (DC), and Professor in the Curatorial Practice Program at MICA, recommended 14 applicants for inclusion in the SOLOS 2016-17 edition.

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. Join us for the opening reception Saturday, Apr. 8, 6 – 9 pm.

Saturday, June 10, 1-3 pm: Join us for our Spring SOLOS Gallery Talk, a discussion and tour of each exhibition, followed by a light reception.

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.
