Collective Cure - August 22 – October 2, 2020
Contemporary art is often birthed from our response to current events. In this time of social distancing, many of us have experienced grief for the life we once had as we struggle to find our new normal. We are all undergoing unique experiences; however, the common denominator is that we are all looking for ways to keep marching on.
Collective Cure is a collection of works responding to the global pandemic, COVID-19. This exhibition focuses on how we as a collective whole will adapt to the world post quarantine, with an emphasis on coping with this crisis and moving forward. Collective Cure will run from August 22nd – October 2nd and feature 27 works by 15 artists both regionally and internationally.
This exhibition was juried by a panel of artists from the staff of Historic New Harmony: Tabatha Chinn, Tonya Lance, and Daniel Mason. Submissions were sent to the jurors with all the artists’ names replaced by numbers to prevent any name bias. Submissions were then scored on a scale of 1-10 for each of the following questions: Did the submission meet the prompt? Is the piece visually appealing? Is the submission technically done well with good craftsmanship? This allowed for a total score out of 90. The top 27 scores were accepted to participate.
Artists to be featured include: Brett Anderson, Nisrin Aziz, Jason Balducci, Beata Marcazk, Marie Pervenche Ruiz, Nick Metz, Jill Miller, Brenda Munguia, Laura Foster Nicholson, Megan Rademacher, Carolyn Roth, Megan Thorne, Lot Winther, and Igor Zusev.
This exhibition is made possible in part by the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana and the Indiana Arts Commission, which receives support from the State of Indiana and the National Endowment for the Arts.
