Memory is a fickle thing, acting like a tape recorder that wears down and degrades with each playback. Entire decades can be painted with broad strokes, or a single moment captured with seemingly perfect detail in the mind’s eye. A photograph, painting, or even an object can take us back to places we forgot. Without this material culture, entire histories, and the people’s lives within them can disappear. How do we as artists interact with memory in our work?
Gallery 263’s upcoming national juried exhibition Do You Remember? invites artists to submit any work on the subject of memory. Juried by Brooklyn based artist Cobi Moules. Open to all US residents. All visual and performance media (2D, 3D, time-based) will be considered.
