The works below (and any links to other blog posts) contain artwork that Beacon Gallery (Boston, USA) is considering for the June/July abstract show.
You are invited to look at these works and see what moves you to write. You can write about anything you want, in any style you want (poetry or prose). This is not meant to be artistic criticism but more of a creative activity in how you experience the work. If the “spirit” doesn’t move you, there’s no obligation to submit anything, or you can write about multiple pieces. As of now, there is no limit to your submissions.
The curatorial vision is to have 2 or so pieces of writing per artwork – to give viewers the sense of different interpretations of the same work of art from different writers, if possible.
While we will only publish some of the work that is submitted, we appreciate everyone’s participation in this experiment.
Deadline for submissions is June 4th
Show opens June 22nd at Beacon Gallery 524B Harrison Ave Boston MA 02118
There will most likely be an opportunity that evening (or another evening) for a live performance of selected works, please make a note if participation is something that interests you.
Format: Please submit a word document or similar (no PDFs) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Include the artist’s name and image number in the subject line of the email
In the word document: please include the artist’s name, image number as well as a copy of the image (to avoid any confusion). Put your full name (as you would want it to appear in the show) and the title of your work (if there is one). No need to format your work in any specific way unless you have a formatted vision for your work. If that’s the case, please provide a PDF or jpg in addition to the word document.
Caveats: The paintings below may not be chosen for the show at the sole discretion of the gallery, particularly if they receive no written submissions. Written work submitted may not be selected for printing, but all submissions are greatly appreciated! All written work remains the property of the original author and cannot be reproduced outside the gallery without express written permission.
