Boston LGBTQIA Artist Alliance Juried Exhibition
On View: November 17 – December 10, 2016
Reception: Saturday November 19, 7-9pm
Gallery 263 is pleased to present trans/draw, a juried exhibition organized by the Boston LGBTQIA Artist Alliance (BLAA) under the direction of Dylan Hurwitz and the management of Lenny Schnier. The work for trans/draw was selected by Brooklyn based visual artist and School of the Museum of Fine Arts alumnus, Cobi Moules. The 12 Greater Boston-based artists featured in trans/draw represent the power of drawing as a mechanism to express and reflect on the trans experience. Their practices span a variety of media, from traditional pencil on paper, to sculpture and video.
The prospectus for trans/draw developed from Schnier’s interest in the resonant overlap between the introspective nature of drawing and the trans experience. In contemporary at, drawing is celebrated for its experimental gestures and departure from rigid traditional norms of picture making. Mark-makers employ that freedom of representation, harnessing drawing’s flexibility, expressive nature, and attunement to sensitivity and feeling. Such freedom is especially liberatory for the non-conforming individual.
Calling for artwork that investigates pattern, process and repetition towards our Winter 2017 National Juried Exhibition, Iteration.
Guest juried by Boston-based artists: Denise Driscoll (Fountain Street Fine Art) & Nathalie Miebach (Miller Yezerski)
Exhibition: February 9 – March 11, 2017
Deadline: Sunday December 18, 11:59pm
