The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) announces a call for artists for Color 2018. This call for submission is open to all residents of the U.S. and its Territories, 18 years of age or older. This is a juried exhibition for artists working in 2D and 3D media including film/video. All artwork must be original in concept, design and execution.
Deadline: 30 May 2018
“In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is—as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art. In order to use color effectively it is necessary to recognize that color deceives continually. Color is “passive,” “deceptive,” and “unstable,” color behaves, color is magic.” – Joseph Albers, Interaction of Color
BWAC Show Curators: Katrina D. Jeffries and Alicia Degener.
The Color 2018 juror is Marcela Guerrero, Assistant Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. From 2014 to 2017 she worked as curatorial fellow at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. Prior to joining the Hammer, she worked in the Latin American and Latino department at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, where she served as research coordinator for the International Center for the Arts of the Americas. Guerrero’s writing has appeared in exhibition catalogues and in art journals such as ArtNexus, Caribbean Intransit: The Arts Journal, Gulf Coast: A Journal of Literature and Fine Arts, Interventions: International Journal of Postcolonial Studies, caa.reviews, and Dialogo. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Guerrero holds a PhD in Art History from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
