Community & Critique:SEAF 2016/2017
Community and critique go hand in hand where rigorous reflection, questioning, and analysis support the advancement of content and form in one’s process and work. Access to materials, techniques, and methods support the development of ideas, and form reveals itself through multiple iterations of the work itself.
This show is the culmination of the yearlong Salama bint Hamdan Emerging Artists Fellowship program (SEAF). These fifteen artists have worked side by side all year in a studio-based community, supporting one another by exchanging knowledge and critical dialogue along the way.
Bringing their works into Warehouse421 means stepping outside the intimacy of the SEAF studios, into the culture and community of the city. Presenting their work in a professional space provides an opportunity to share and speak about it with others; and thus becomes an important moment within their continuing process. The critique asks participants to articulate what they are thinking about and seeing, both formally and conceptually, contributing to the complexity and richness of process that leads to sustained artistic practice.
