The Painting Center is pleased to present the juried group exhibition Being Human curated by Alix Bailey, Kathleen Beausoleil and Perri Neri. The exhibition will be on view from July 16 – August 10, 2024, and will be featured on Artsy with a catalogue of the artists’ works.

Being Human celebrates the complexities of the human experience – an experience that ignites the artist to explore and reflect on the many layers of humanness such as identity, memory, and connection. What does an artist experience that distinguishes one moment from the others that brings into focus a special “moment of being’ that must be remembered and turned into art? This exhibition invites a multiplicity of artistic styles, from the controlled classical figure to the visceral fevered brushwork of abstraction, to the whittling of something down to its very essence, asking – what it means to be human.

We are curious. Are you an artist who leans into the contours and repetitive rhythms of daily life as a catalyst for new forms? Do you explore your subject matter through a documentary style or a narrative lens? Does your visual vocabulary throw viewers into spaces roiling with the complications of “being” as shapes and colors that struggle to co-exist? This exhibition’s title turns on its verb and considers how the collective voices of artists’ histories, experiences, traumas, and triumphs present the layered and complex act of Being Human.

Artists are invited to submit up to three images. There are no size limitations and all visual art styles and mediums will be considered. The deadline to apply is June 20, 2024. Please note that all works must be wired and ready to hang or be able to be secured on a pedestal.
