Abstraction at Large
International Juried Art Exhibition NYC
April 11 – May 6, 2018

Abstraction, one of the most radical innovations of art history, stripped away the recognizable, threw it to the winds, and laid bare the purely abstract. This show seeks to bring forward how abstraction shapes contemporary art practice, not simply as a part of art history but as a living visual language.

This is an open call to artists for an exhibition at Site:Brooklyn.

The exhibition will reflect the ambitious, innovative and contemporary in painting, drawing, printmaking, mixed media and photography today.
