Ongoing Conversation, an international curatorial project invites emerging mid-career and established artists to submit original artworks to “Artist & Child”. All media will be considered, including ceramics, painting, printmaking, sculpture, performance, glass, fiber, digital, photography, installation, mixed media, and new genres. This exhibition will be held at Roswell Visual Arts Center, Roswell, GA, and will be open to the public from March 29th to April 19th, 2024.
The theme of the Exhibition: Engaging in art-making, particularly when shared among artists and their children, holds profound significance in nurturing human connection and fostering creativity. This collaborative process not only strengthens familial bonds but also serves as a conduit for intergenerational dialogue. The act of creating art together transcends mere strokes on a canvas; it weaves a vibrant tapestry of shared memories, emotions, and stories. Artists who work closely with their children or place them at the focal point of their studio practice are encouraged to apply. Additionally, artists who explore the concept of 'the others' and their children are also welcome to participate.
