2020 Members Prize Show @ University Place
Juried by: Jessica Rosico
February 11-April 30, 2020
124 Mt. Auburn Street, Cambridge, MA
Opening reception: Friday, February 13 from 6-8pm
Excerpt from the juror's statement: A juried show can reveal the tenor of what artists are finding most urgent right now, and the works are often reflective of a broader consciousness. For me, a satisfying exhibition often evokes an overall feeling rather than too much cohesiveness in visual approach. To that end, the submissions to this show did not disappoint. This exhibition is filled with painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, fiber art, and a range of mixed media. Not surprisingly, there is darkness lurking under the surface of a number of these works—whether they are unsettled domestic scenes, physically and mentally dark and dense landscapes, strident text, or frenzied abstractions. We do find ourselves more uncertain than not when we think about our place in this world, and this anxiety is present in many of these works.
I also noticed a preoccupation with vision—how the viewer is intended to see and respond to a particular work, and how the subject itself is portrayed. We see figures blurred, covered, or cut off entirely, taken out of their original context and reinterpreted by the artist. The weight of tradition and history is also a thread that runs through this exhibition, with nods to aging landscapes and titles that recall how things might have been. The use of encaustic, alternative photographic processes, and even an emphasis on realism reminds us that we should never forget our own histories, even while creating an object that is very much in the present moment.
