UNLIMITED EDITION is a juried show about the relationship of the art world to reproduction and marketing. We're looking for artists who produce lots of unnumbered multiples of an image or an object...or who incorporate mass-produced products into their work...or who simply explore the commodification and mass-reproduction of art through various means.
Artists living or working in Virginia, DC, Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware, and Pennsylvania may submit up to 5 jpegs, along with a statement-max length: 300 words-explaining what they propose to exhibit, and how it addresses the show's theme. Existing works must have been completed after 2005. Proposals for new work that take into account the AAC's exhibition spaces are encouraged. UNLIMITED EDITION will occupy the entire ground floor of the AAC. Floor plans are available on our website.
New members $40
New member entry fee includes a one year AAC Artist's Membership, which offers reduced rates on classes, professional development opportunities and workshops, and upcoming member-only events.
