(e)merge art fair> CALL FOR ARTIST APPLICATIONS
The fourth annual (e)merge art fair will take place October 2 – 5, 2014, in Washington, DC, at the Capitol Skyline Hotel.
(e)merge is the only art fair that gives free exhibition space to artists without gallery representation. If you are an artist who is currently unrepresented by a gallery, (e)merge is your forum for discovery.
The (e)merge Artist Platform presents a vetted selection of works by independent artists displayed throughout the hotel’s public areas. The 2014 (e)merge Vetting Committee members are: AI WEIWEI, artist, Beijing; MIKA YOSHITAKE, assistant curator, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; and JEFFREEN M. HAYES, director, Rebuild Foundation, Chicago, St. Louis & Omaha.
The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC, will present the second annual Phillips Collection Emerging Artist Prize at the 2014 edition of (e)merge. Museum Director Dorothy Kosinski and Curators Klaus Ottmann and Vesela Sretenović will select the winner from works on display at the (e)merge art fair. The Phillips Collection Emerging Artist Prize is made possible by the generous support of Hank and Carol Brown Goldberg.
ONLINE APPLICATIONS ARE NOW BEING ACCEPTED.
