Call for Artists: “Gentrified” at BAG Gallery
Call for Artists at BAG Gallery
on display December 18 through Jan. 8
The BAG Gallery is seeking submissions for their upcoming show, “Gentrified,” on view from December 18, 2010 until January 8, 2011.
Like all urban areas, the word ‘gentrification’ can spark a heated debate anywhere in Brooklyn. Our neighborhoods have undergone huge transformations in the recent past, polarizing their inhabitants in the process. Have we gained vibrancy, or lost it? Revitalized or destroyed? New York sheds its skin like a living thing, layering new on top of old, leaving a trail of nostalgia and dissension in its wake. We invite artists to explore the constant upheaval, the friction, the gains and losses, the concrete and abstract ramifications of a city in progress.
Download and submit the Gentrified application by December 3rd. Email it to email@example.com or send it to us by snail-mail (168 7th St., Floor 3, Brooklyn NY 11215).
