Summary:

Target Gallery invites artists working in all visual arts to apply for the upcoming group exhibition “A Year In”. As we have now past the one-year mark of COVID-19 shut-downs in the United States, this exhibition will provide a catharsis, for artists and viewers alike, to take in and share in works that highlight the very specific reality that we are now in. This also provides an opportunity for artists to come together and share their experiences about how this year has changed, shifted, or influenced their artist practice. All submitted works should be connected to current events that have happened since March of 2020.

About the Juror:

Nancy Daly is an artist and curator based in Washington D.C. Her current body of work examines how the development of the online social world is affecting identity and social behavior. By creating interactive machines reminiscent of outdated technology, she addresses the contradictions present in various social media that are at once ephemeral and entirely permanent. Interactivity and the vocabulary of minimalist sculpture are key elements of her installations that challenge the viewer to look beyond the user-friendliness of online technology and consider what their participation in social media means.
Nancy Daly is a graduate of the Photographic and Electronic Media MFA program at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She lives and works in Washington, D.C. where she teaches Photography, Visual Literacy, 2D Design and 3D Design at American University and George Mason University.
