Juror’s Statement: March 3, 2017

Sir Alec Issigonis is said to have defined a camel as a horse, designed by committee. Exhibition curators assemble bodies of work, while juried shows are selected from bodies of work the juror did not assemble. The challenge then is to find some kind of hypothetical logic that would allow the juror to create a selection that might have been curated.

In today’s world, polemics of style or taxonomies of media have passed their sell-by date. In the digital age, objects created to engage the viewer and stimulate a response find sudden unity in sharing the distinction of physicality. The question becomes not just one of craft, or even of originality, but how thoughtfully the artwork manifests a sense of purpose, generates an encounter, and delivers an experience. My selection focused on works engaged less in exposition, and more in exploring processes associated with close scrutiny, travel, gender, identity, crisis, sexuality,and mass-media. It was a pleasure to spend time with all of the entries, and equally difficult to narrow the selection from fifty to fifteen—the limit set for accepted entries. My hope is these selections will benefit from their dialogue.
