Event description

Description

Calling all artists that are making work about themes surrounding what it means to be making art in the nation's capital. Hillyer's September exhibiting artist, Jenna North, is looking for 3 artists to take part in her performance during Art All Night. Selected artists will receive a $50 stipend.

NOTE: Final selection of artists will be chosen by Jenna North, and artists will be notified by September 24th.


Joan Dare, the alter-ego of
Jenna North, will host an open house for any Washington DC-based artist (or artists living within 20 miles of the DC line) to participate in a live (and filmed) portfolio review. Joan will interview artists while inquiring about and critiquing their submissions. The results of the portfolio review event will culminate in a curated show entitled, “What Demarcates Washington DC Artists?” Details such as location and date of exhibition TBD. This event will take place at the "Joan Dare Gallery" exhibition at IA&A at Hillyer during the Art All Night 2018 at Hillyer event on September 29th.

Each "portfolio review" will last about 10 minutes, starting at 7:30pm. We are looking for 2-3 artists to sign up to be Joan's guest artists. Once you sign up, the gallery will be in contact with you for further details. Artist will be selected by Jenna North.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

"The Joan Dare Gallery"

Joan, a Senators wife, recently and enthusiastically arrived in Washington D.C. from her homestead in rural Kansas. As the privileged, albeit sheltered, and latest alter ego of Jenna North, Joan spends her days on self-expression through her passion for Broadway musicals, tap dancing, and her love of cultural arts. She’s building a network of socialites to attend her tea parties intended to elevate the importance of small talk, with an emphasis on the weather. She is in the process of working through her business plan to open “The Joan Dare Gallery”, that will represent regional emerging artists. Although she is interested in cultural activities and artistic expression, she prefers to ignore the darker side of humanity and avoids the news. However, the plight of the immigrant children being separated from their families at the U.S. border has touched home with her since she’s developed a recent obsession with the idea of having a child of her own. Might she adopt a poor immigrant child, engulf on the technological advances in fertility treatments, or will she be impregnated by Immaculate Conception?
