Target Gallery Exhibitions
Application Deadline: Friday, July 30, 11:59PM EST
Exhibition Dates: September 11 – October 24
Reception: Friday, October 8, 7pm
Juror: Sue Wrbican, DC-based artist and professor at George Mason University
Target Gallery invites artists working in all visual arts to apply for the upcoming group exhibition “Hypotheses”. This exhibition is all about the process of intellectual experimentation and/or the exploration of new ideas and techniques in an artist’s practice.
The goal of this theme is to create a dialogue of work in conversation with each other about embarking outside one’s traditional boundaries of understanding. Whether it be based in cerebral or scientific research or experimenting with a new technique or conceptual idea, each work in the exhibition will embody this concept of questioning and discovery
About the Juror
Sue Wrbican is an artist interested in intersections of the environment, economics, labor and surrealism. Recent projects are extensive artistic explorations into the work of Surrealist Kay Sage resulting in towering sculptures inspired by Sage’s paintings. These works include Buoyant Force now installed in front of the Tephra Institute of Contemporary Art in Reston, VA and The Eventual Outcome of an Instant on the grounds of the Seligmann Center in Sugar Loaf, NY. Wrbican has presented works in venues such as Latela Gallery, Greater Reston Art Center, the Zizek Studies conference at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning. Her video Back Roof is part of Miranda July’s Joanie 4 Jackie Archive at the Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles, CA. Collaborative works include Scream at the Economy with the Floating Lab Collective and The Frozen Car with Mary Carothers. Wrbican has held residencies at the Robert Rauschenberg Residency in Captiva, Florida, Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California, and The Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. From 1997-1999 she was a video Artist In Residence at Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) working with Billy Klüver, Julie Martin and Barbro Schultz Lundestam on a series of films entitled 9 evenings: theatre and engineering documenting the 1966 performances of Robert Rauschenberg, John Cage, David Tudor and Yvonne Rainer among others. She worked closely with Robert Whitman to compose historical film footage of his 1960 performance American Moon. Sue Wrbican teaches in the School of Art at George Mason University and her education includes an MFA in Photography from the Rhode Island School of Design and BA in English Writing with a concentration in poetry from the University of Pittsburgh.
