Fun House 2018:
Art of the Surreal, Fantastic, and Bizarre
Fun House 2018 invites artwork submissions that celebrate all that a Fun House offers: the marvelous, disorienting, seductive, disquieting, and surreal. Fun House seeks works that engage with the real/unreal, the miniature and the gigantic, optics and illusion, and/or the politics of display. Artists are invited to provide a juxtaposition of traditional styles and cutting-edge practices: in addition to 2-D works in all media, sculptural. installation, digital, video and interactive works are all encouraged.
Our national exhibitions are jurored by leading curators, critics, and processionals in the visual arts, Barrett would be proud to include Ryan Murphy as a juror for Fun House 2018, May 12 – June 23, 2018.
Our recent jurors include Natalie Bell (Assistant Curator, The New Museum); Ruth Erickson (Curator, ICA Boston); Rebecca Morse (Assistant Curator, LACMA); and Robert Stevens (photography editor, TIME Magazine). I invite you to get in touch with me with any questions or to talk about details if this sounds like a project that would be interesting to you. We offer a modest juror’s stipend of $375.
Since its founding under the New Deal, the Barrett Art Center has brought exceptional fine art exhibitions to our community and provided artists with a space to learn and grow. Your support as a juror will help us continue to serve the community and support emerging and established artists from across the country. I invite you to look at the works included in our annual schedule of exhibitions here: http://www.barrettartcenter.org/archived-exhibitions/
