Call for Artists – CFEVA

Deadline April 11: The Center for Emerging Visual Artists presents the 2016 Visiting Curator Series:

The Center for Emerging Visual Artists invites you to submit images of your artwork for review by our guest curator, Hitomi Iwasaki, Director of Exhibitions/Curator, Queens Museum (Queens, NY). Of the applicants, 10 to 25 artists will be asked to present a digital portfolio of approximately ten images. One to three of those artists will be selected for an exhibition in CFEVA’s Felicity R. “Bebe” Benoliel Gallery.

The Visiting Curator Program allows CFEVA to showcase the abundance of talented artists from our region to a curator who is not yet familiar with our artist community. CFEVA is proud to create more exposure for the artists we serve and provide beneficial new leads for noteworthy curators.

Hitomi Iwasaki joined Queens Museum in 1996 and has worked on numerous landmark exhibitions including Cai Guo Qiang (1997), Global Conceptualism (1999), and Caribbean: Crossroad of the World (2012). As Director of Exhibitions, her work focuses on conceptually driven site-specific artist projects. Iwasaki has worked with a ranging body of international artists including Terence Gower, Duke Riley, Johanna Unzueta, Jewyo Rhii, among many others. Most recently she has completed emerging artist projects by Meredith James, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Casey Tang, and Mariam Ghani, and is currently working on solo-exhibitions of Anna K. E. (2017) and Patty Chang (2018). Upcoming exhibitions at Queens Museum include the 7th edition of Queens International, QM’s signature biannual of artists live/work in Queens, andHey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk in April 2016.

The Queens Museum is dedicated to presenting the highest quality visual arts and educational programming for people in the New York metropolitan area, and particularly for the residents of Queens, a uniquely diverse, ethnic, cultural, and international community. The Museum fulfills its mission by designing and providing art exhibitions, public programs and educational experiences that promote the appreciation and enjoyment of art, support the creative efforts of artists, and enhance the quality of life through interpreting, collecting, and exhibiting art, architecture, and design.
