On February 5, 2010, a group of painters, sculptors, architects, writers, film makers, photographers, and musicians will hold an exhibition in a currently vacant building at 1017 West Main Street in Charlottesville, Virginia. Soon afterward, the building will be demolished.
This multi-media show/exhibition is brought to you by The Center for the Study of the End of Things. A Migration fav, Ashley Williams, is one of the group’s organizers. Ashley has already brought together an excellent collection of visual artists to add to the event.
The exhibit's curatorial goal is to assemble a coherent body of work that revolves around themes of obsolescence, weathering, and decay, as well as meditations on growth, rebirth, and the utility of discarded materials.
Drawings, paintings, architectural models, maps, diagrams, photographs, audio or video recordings, writing, sculpture, or other work that relates to the theme will be considered for inclusion.
Submissions will be accepted until January 25, 2010. See the detailed info here.
