This show seeks to address personal, political, and economic issues pertaining to the cultural currency of Money. In today’s political climate, how does money move, change, and effect both nations and/or individuals? The effects of economic issues on national decisions, the effect of a global economy on the individual, the individual artist’s relationship to the economy, and the aesthetic value of currency are some aspects that the artist is asked to contemplate. Artists are also encouraged to address other aspects of this encompassing topic that they find interesting and pertinent. Works in any or all media will be considered.
ARC Gallery is a non-profit, alternative space run by a collective of women artists since its inception in 1973. ARC is proud to be hosting “Money-Money-Money,”: a group exhibition juried by Mary Jane Jacob, Professor and Executive Director of Exhibitions at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. As chief curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and Los Angeles, she staged some of the first U.S. shows of American and European artists, such as Magdalena Abakanowicz, Ann Hamilton, Rebecca Horn, Jannis Kounellis, and Christian Boltanski, as well as the first retrospective of Gordon Matta-Clark. Shifting her workplace from the museum to the street, she has critically engaged the discourse around public space, organizing site and community-based programs that include “Places with a Past” in Charleston, “Culture in Action” in Chicago, and “Conversations at The Castle” in Atlanta. She also serves as curator for the Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston, SC. With the book Buddha Mind in Contemporary Art (University of California Press, 2004), she furthered her research into the nature of the art making today and her forthcoming anthology, Learning Mind: Experience into Art, will deal with the art experience and its relation to pedagogy.
