This Deadline Expired: Saturday, April 11, 2020

SPECIAL MESSAGE: The health and safety of Rochester Contemporary’s visitors, staff, and supporters is their top priority. RoCo remains temporarily closed to the public. Many people are finding themselves with more time at home, and some of you are contacting them with questions and ideas about 6×6. 6×6 is 100% a go. As always, RoCo invites you to participate and share your process or finished art on social media with #RoCo6x6. **During this time they ask that you mail your artworks via USPS as this will be delivered to the facility even when we are not open. They’re working on an artwork drop-off station to accommodate larger and fragile artworks while they are closed. They may have to make some adjustments to 6×6 but, you bet it’s happening!

6×6 is an international phenomenon of thousands of artworks from all over the world and it’s completely free to enter. Simply fill out an entry form and mail or deliver your 6-inch by 6-inch artwork to Rochester Contemporary Art Center by ‪April 11 or postmarked April 10. 6×6 is an accessible way for international artists to participate in a fun exhibition here in the States without a lot of commitment or restrictions! 

6×6 is hosted by Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo), a small, non-profit art center in Rochester, NY! This annual exhibition 6×6, raises critical funds needed to pay artists, maintain our building and administer contemporary art programming to our community this coming year! With just one, simple artwork you can help our mission to provide unique encounters for audiences and extraordinary opportunities for artists. Learn more about 6×6 at roco6x6.org and on social media using #roco6x6 and @roco137.

Mindy Flexer makes magical realist, figurative, oil paintings. She uses observation and invention to explore identity and family relationships, and the way personal history resides within the larger arc of time. Her current work is about our extraordinary historical moment, when climate crisis threatens all life on earth, and climate justice offers the possibility of global transformation to a just and equitable world. Her visual language of a seamless world of people, animals, and place, is the language of the interconnection of all life on earth. Flexer’s paintings speak about climate in a language personal enough for people to hear it. Her goal is to inspire people to action. She hopes to connect people to themselves and each other, so each person can find their place in the mass movement necessary to create a sustainable future. In this way, she sees her paintings aspart of the great web of healing she deeply believes can save our planet.

Scott Troxel draws on the aesthetics of bygone technology and the forward-looking designs of the Atomic Age and mid-century modernism to make dynamic, retrofuturist wooden wall sculptures that evoke nostalgia for the past as much as they look to the future. Fascinated by the way pieces of technology, culture, and design reveal their age, Scott aims to make works that cannot be pinned to a specific era.  By utilizing new and reclaimed wood, metal, plastics and other materials, Scott's mixed media sculptural work defies normal classification.

Sharing the experiences I have had with race and gender is a catalyst for my work. My experience growing up very protected in a race not completely my own, was not concerning to me as a child. When I was introduced to a mixed race population that was very concerned with labeling and grouping people, the experience was unsettling. From that point, I had to think about race and culture and how they related to my daily performance.
