Beauty Untethered April 2019
Deadline: March 1, 2019
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
Gallery 114 is looking for three artists whose work dares to champion Beauty.
We will turn our gallery over to the selected artists for the month of April 2019.
(Artists to apply individually.) The gallery is located at 1100 NW Glisan Ave in the
Pearl District- right across from Blick’s.
The contemporary art world has dubbed beauty as a dirty word. Dave Hickey
tried to rescue it from the onslaught of art criticism with his collection of essays in
The Invisible Dragon in the 90’s. Love it or hate it, though, it’s hard to deny the
attraction that beautiful art has on its viewer. Besides once something becomes
taboo, doesn’t that become the invitation that an artist needs to further explore an
idea? What does it mean for a work of art to be “beautiful” in 2019? We’re a
gallery where artists run the show: together let’s add something exciting to the
conversation surrounding Beauty.
