Yes, And: a survey exhibition of art and artists connected to Staten Island

This Deadline Expired: Friday, December 31, 2021

The Staten Island Museum is now accepting applications for an upcoming major exhibition planned as part of the Museum’s 140th Anniversary initiatives.

Set to open in June 2022, the Staten Island Museum will present Yes, And: a survey exhibition of art and artists connected to Staten Island. The exhibition will be a current version of the Staten Island Museum’s longstanding tradition of holding juried art shows for more than 70 years.

The theme Yes, And suggests the abundance of experience on and perception of Staten Island. This complicated and prodigious borough contains a multitude of narratives that cumulatively offer an earnest impression of life in the United States.

The title is a reference to a classic improv rule-of-thumb requiring performers to accept what another participant is suggesting, and then build on it. In this way, Yes, And presents an expansive theme for artists to consider and encourages the open sharing of ideas and perspectives. The title also speaks to the dynamic connections between art, natural science, and history represented by the museum’s scope.
