Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 Fall & Winter Group Exhibitions at School 33 Art Center in the first floor Main Gallery. Applications are open to visual artists working in any medium who wish to have their most recent works considered. Through this open call, School 33 aims to present new work by emerging and mid-career artists from the United States and abroad. School 33 Art Center and the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts will produce all related press materials, and will host an opening reception and coordinate exhibition-related programming.
Two professional curators will select between five and ten artists for each exhibition, based upon individual artistic merit and curatorial vision. The curators are Adriel Luis and Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell.
Adriel Luis is a Washington D.C.-based community organizer, curator, and musician who is driven by the belief that social justice can be achieved through surprising, imaginative and loving approaches to art. He serves as Curator of Digital and Emerging Media at the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, where he pushes for emerging artists of color to be shown and paid fairly by museums. There, Adriel and his team produce Culture Labs: an alternative to traditional museum exhibitions built on community organizing principles. Currently, he tours the world with his band iLL-Literacy, using music and spoken word to strengthen Black and Asian American coalitions in colleges; and is creative director of Bombshelltoe, which works with artists to highlight marginalized communities affected by nuclear history. Adriel recently curated exhibitions at the Asian Arts Initiative in Philadelphia and Target Gallery in Alexandria, Virginia.
Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell is a Washington, D.C. native, independent curator and museum professional working at the intersection of community collaboration, social justice practice, and art engagement. In 2015 she joined the National Museum of Women in the Arts to advance the launch of the Women, Arts, and Social Change initiative, growing WASC audiences by 2000% through her community centered approach to outreach. She currently works with the National Museum of African American History and Culture, developing dialogue-based programs that encourage critical thinking as a means to strategize for a better world with the signature series, A Seat at the Table.
Kayleigh serves as a Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion (DEAI) consultant for numerous projects including MASS Action, The Empathetic Museum, and others, with the aim of disrupting the status quo throughout the cultural sector. She serves on the National Arts Education Advisory Council with Americans for the Arts, the Selection Committee of Halcyon Arts Lab in Washington, DC, the Artist Advisory Council of VisArts in Rockville, MD, and formerly, as Co-Chair of the DC Chapter of ArtTable, Inc. She has produced a number of contemporary curatorial projects exploring social issues at the intersection of race, gender, and politics, including her participation in the 2017 Arlington Art Center's Curator Spotlight program, and the inaugural Emerging Curator program at VisArts, Rockville.
