QCC-CUNY Art Gallery Juried Student Exhibition
2016 Juried Student Exhibition
April 16 through June 5, 2016
Opening Night Thursday, May 5 from 5 to 8 pm
The self is an artist’s constant refuge and trove; it is the reckless and ever-tickling source of the untold want. Self, particularly for the now post, post-modern artist, is defined beyond the immediate; it encompasses our origins, pre-dispositions, politics and environment. The works in this year’s show, without exception, represent a step beyond an answer to academic or foundational exercise. They are sometimes modest, sometimes wobbly, graceful, unforgiving, encumbered, precise or spontaneous, but each one registers, even if just a glimpse, an awareness and deliberate telling of self.
