CALL FOR PROPOSALS April 2019
Beauty Untethered
Deadline: March 1, 2019
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

Gallery 114 is looking for three artists whose work dares to champion Beauty. We will turn our gallery over to the selected artists for the month of April 2019. (Artists to apply individually.)

The contemporary art world has dubbed beauty as a dirty word. Dave Hickey tried to rescue it from the onslaught of art criticism with his collection of essays in The Invisible Dragon in the 90’s. Love it or hate it, though, it’s hard to deny the attraction that beautiful art has on its viewer. Besides once something becomes taboo, doesn’t that become the invitation that an artist needs to further explore an idea? What does it mean for a work of art to be “beautiful” in 2019? We’re a gallery where artists run the show: together let’s add something exciting to the conversation surrounding Beauty.
