Fall SOLOS 2016

on view: October 15 - December 18, 2016

Bridging the community with contemporary art is key to AAC's mission. To achieve this, we bring 14 regional contemporary artists to Arlington each year through our SOLOS series alone!

More than 100 artists living in the Mid-Atlantic Region submitted proposals for this semi-annual exhibition. Jurors Sarah Newman, Independent Curator, and José Ruiz, Co-Director of Present Co. (NY), Director of Furthermore (DC), and Professor in the Curatorial Practice Program at MICA, recommended 14 applicants for inclusion in the SOLOS 2016-17 edition.

Aptly titled, SOLOS artists are assigned to one of our seven main gallery spaces, where they each mount a self-curated, self-contained exhibition, resulting in a selection of never-before-seen exhibitions. Join us for the opening reception Saturday, Oct. 15, 6 - 9 pm.

The Fall SOLOS Gallery Talk, a discussion and tour of each exhibition, followed by a light reception, is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 10, 2016, 1 - 4 pm.
