Up Next Alumni Symposia

Building on the success of YoungArts’ model of mentorship with master artists across disciplines, day-long symposia called Up Next will feature talks, workshops and panels that help further prepare YoungArts alumni for successful careers in their artistic fields. Led by industry experts and renowned artists, the symposia will take place in Los Angeles on November 8 and New York on November 15.

 

YoungArts Miami Art Week Activations

During this year’s Miami Art Week, the National YoungArts Foundation will present two exhibitions of work by emerging artists, furthering their commitment to supporting the organization’s alumni as they establish themselves in the art world. At the YoungArts Gallery, IMAGINATION LAND: Fantastical Narrative, curated by multidisciplinary artist and YoungArts master teacher Derrick Adams, will feature new and recent interdisciplinary works addressing consumerism, gender roles, the environment and ceremonial ritual. At PULSE Contemporary Art Fair, Helen Toomer, co-founder and artistic director of STONELEAF RETREAT and former director of PULSE, will curate a booth titled Searching exhibiting works by 15 YoungArts alumni.

IMAGINATION LAND: Fantastical Narrative

Curated by Derrick Adams, IMAGINATION LAND: Fantastical Narrative is a group exhibition featuring YoungArts alumni whose works respond to and are in conversation with consumerism, gender roles, the environment, and ceremonial ritual. Including video, sculpture, painting and performative works, the exhibition explores how the mechanics of art production play a major part in the way we see ourselves as products of our environment. Provocative, complex and self-referential, the exhibition proposes new ideas and concepts of external objects, fuses the possible with the impossible, and invites the viewer into a space of self-discovery.

On view now through December 15, 2017
