"Year Zero" Exhibition

Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning

This event has ended.

The Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (JCAL) presents a special exhibition that will be held at its gallery space from
January 26 through March 26, 2011 celebrating the work of the artists who have participated in the pilot year of its Studio LLC program. The year long program was created in 2010 and is designed to provide up and coming artists with guidance on how to establish and run an art studio as a business. The 20 participants in the program, who were required to be under 30 years of age and to have completed a degree within the last three years, met once a month for a series of seminars given by artists, arts administrators and curators. Topics included networking throughout the art community, marketing art work to galleries, tips on portfolio preparation, insurance, tax considerations and securing a viable studio space.
Regarding the participants in this year’s Studio LLC program, Louise Barry, Guest Curator of the Exhibition, stated: “Not only does their work represent a cross-section of the diverse artistic practices currently co-existing in the New York art world, but it represents the point of view of a specific generation.” The exhibition is titled Year Zero, referencing the experience of starting from the beginning and building something new. An experience shared by both these young artists and JCAL.

The artists to be featured in the exhibition are: Carla Aspenberg, Lydia Bell, Kate Burnet, Dan Woerner, Michelle Carollo, Nicole S. Fernandez, Jocelyn M. Goode, Cosme Herrera, Nung-Hsin Hu,. Jae Kyung Kim, Wayne Liu, Graham McNamara, Heather M. O’Brien, Silvia Juliana, Mantilla Ortiz, Gabriela Salazar, Yasmine Soiffer, Mark Lawrence Stafford, Chad Stayrock, Felisia Tandiono, Jinjoo Yang and Christine Wang.
