GLOBALissues. CLIMATEmatters. SocialCHANGE.
September 6, 2014 to October 18, 2014
G.C.C. was the first juried exhibition hosted by the ArtRage Gallery! The submission process was open to all contemporary artists, including Central New York artists, who are creating work that fits the ArtRage mission to inspire resistance, promote social awareness, support social justice, challenge preconceptions, and encourage cultural change. The result was an exhibition of the work of 24 artists, one-third of whom are from Central New York, that reveals their diverse talent and demonstrates the range of social and environmental issues that concern many of today’s artists. The exhibition had three jurors: Mary Murray, the curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Munson-Williams Proctor Arts Institute; Debora Ryan, an independent curator whose more than two decades of museum experience include 13 years as the curator at the Everson Museum of Art; and Rose Viviano, ArtRage Gallery’s curator and director.
