NYC Gallery Showing Every Work They've Been Sent for a Show
on 21 November 2017
At NYC's Andrew Edlin Gallery, an open call was posted for any type of artist to submit work and have it featured it the exhibition "Et Tu, Art Brute?," with the only restriction being that the work must fit within a 16-by-20 inch envelope. Some 740 pieces later, and all the work is featured in the crowded but exciting exhibition. Yes, in many ways it combats art world elitism, but more importantly many newcomers are given a voice—including three-and-a-half-year-old Georgi Starbuck Brown from Brooklyn. Famous artists like Terence Koh submitted pieces, as did everyone from artists working with disabilities to those incarcerated. Every medium has been represented and the show runs through 28 January 2018. Read more on Artsy.
