The Delaware Contemporary launches the next installment of our successful and popular Draper Experiment cycle that began in January 2019, but this time with a new name and location! Hennessy Experiment will live in the Constance S. & Robert J. Hennessy Project Space and intends to carry on the original intent of this space designed to promote experimental ideas and materials. Hennessy Experiment will embody The Delaware Contemporary’s mission of innovative opportunities for contemporary artists with the goal of breaking from traditional curatorial and exhibition practices. They seek artists, artist groups, and artist collectives who will use this unique opportunity as a test lab, a Petri dish, to exercise ideas and push current practices in a space to experiment with craft, materials, and mediums or something completely new.

They are looking for proposals that discusses contemporary issues, addresses/critiques society, pushes a current conversation, or exploits the use of exhibition space. A successful proposal will incorporate these features.

Colorful, minimalist  still-life paintings created with a palette knife, which leaves a distinctive texture.  Incisions and scrapings, along with pencil and oil pastel marks, trace the creation of the work over time. Light and shadow are key elements in these abstracted scenes of everyday life.  Working over multiple sessions result in traces of previous versions and iterations which allow the viewer to engage in the work on multiple levels.
