Assembly 2022: Time and Attention

On View: October 1 – December 18

Participating Artists: Merryn Omotayo Alaka & Sam Fresquez (AZ), MyLoan Dinh (NC), Erika Lynne Hanson (AZ), Priya Suresh Kambli (MO), Cecilia Kim (VA), Vincent Miranda (FL), Kelly Taylor Mitchell (GA), Courtney Puckett (NY), Trina Michelle Robinson (CA), Mandy Cano Villalobos (MI), and Sandy Williams IV (VA)

Assembly, the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s biennial exhibition program, highlights the material and conceptual trends being explored by contemporary artists in the present moment. The artists in Assembly 2022: Time and Attention demonstrate a deep commitment to process and craft, which is channeled through materials and into research. Through these carefully considered approaches, they are creating work that speaks to the present moment in ways that feel both urgent and timeless. In what feels like a moment of ongoing, even perpetual, crisis they bring this focused approach to issues that are fundamental to contemporary American life, including questions of identity, history, immigration, place, and belonging.

The artists included in Assembly 2022: Time & Attention were selected through a multi-step process. Curators from peer organizations across the country were invited to nominate two artists to be considered and, from the group of nominated artists, twelve were invited to participate in the exhibition by Blair Murphy, the Museum’s Curator of Exhibitions.
