Show to be on view June 16 through July 21, 2017
The Young Affiliates of the Mint (the “YAMs”) are announcing the artists selected by the jury panel for their second annual art show, GENDERED: An Inclusive Art Show. GENDERED will be on view in Mint Museum Uptown’s Level 5 expansion space from Friday, June 16, 2017 through Friday, July 21, 2017. An Opening will be held on Friday, June 16 from 7 to 10 p.m. An Artist Panel moderated by Adam Justice, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Mint Museum, will be held on Wednesday, June 28 from 6 to 8 p.m.
GENDERED seeks to create an inclusive arts forum for gender and its common intersectionalities with race, class, sexuality, and identity. The current divisive political climate finds people seeking a means to come together and find a common understanding. The YAMs believe in the unifying force of art and seek to create a safe space of expression and dialogue. GENDERED is a group exhibition featuring twenty-four artists from across the country and representing a variety of viewpoints through diverse mediums that invites viewers to join the conversation. The featured works of art were selected by a panel of esteemed jurors: Kelli Connell, Ryan James Caruthers, John Edmonds, & Carla Hanzal.
