Diálogo 365: New Rhizomes

Diálogo 365: New Rhizomes

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, May 1, 2022

Casa de Venezuela and Fleisher Art Memorial invite Latinx, Latin American and Caribbean visual artists to submit entries for a 2022 exhibition opportunity.

In 2022, these two Philadelphia-based organizations are partnering to create a series of artistic and cultural projects that preserve cultural heritage and foster placemaking as part of 360 Culture Lab, a project supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage. This exhibition, to be hosted in Fleisher’s galleries later this summer, is one of the collaboration’s flagship projects.

2022 THEME

Inspired by the 360 Cultural Lab mission and taking stock of the massive exodus from Venezuela in the last decade, Diálogo 365: New Rhizomes takes the concept of placemaking as a departure point. The lab is asking artists to unpack the interpretations and possibilities of placemaking in our current state of uncertainty. In what ways do we strengthen or sabotage our sense of place? How are we rethinking what it means to connect to one another? How do we fortify our stems to build more equity as inbetweeners? Diálogo 365: New Rhizomes seeks a variety of visual perspectives from emerging and established artists of Latin American and Caribbean heritage.

The exhibition will run from August 12 – September 9, 2022 and will be co-curated by Diálogo 365 founder Andreina Castillo and Gerard Silva, Director of Exhibitions and Community Outreach at Fleisher. There is no fee to apply.

Gestural lines, fragmented patterns and assorted textures are the threads of my work which create a space for the confluence of memory, time and place.  The overarching theme of my work is a narrative drawn from personal history, my meditation and spiritual practice, community engagement and interest in the mysteries of the Universe.

Andrew Chalfen's colorful abstract-geometric paintings, drawings, and mixed-media pieces are dense, vibrant worlds of precisely rendered patterning, suggestive of aerial views, cartography, architectural renderings, psychedelia musical notation, urban-like densities, circuitry and digital life. His process is a mixture of focused intentionality and generative randomization strategies.
