ARTIST ALLIANCE 2019 BIENNIAL
DECEMBER 21, 2019–MAY 31, 2020
Juried By Bob Pincus and Maria Mingalone
OMA is proud to announce its fourth biennial juried Artist Alliance members’ exhibition. This exhibition features a cross-section of the most noteworthy artwork from the museum’s talented Artist Alliance members. An integral part of OMA’s mission is supporting local and regional artists.
Southern California’s cultural landscape is diverse and growing, which is reflected in the burgeoning talent in this exhibition of OMA’s Artist Alliance members.
Jurying can be a joy. It is hard work too, because it requires looking at a large number of artwork submitted by a broad spectrum of artists and giving each entry the amount of attention it deserves. It is a marvelous and thought-provoking process as well. It exercises eye, mind, and heart in the selection of work that you believe will make for an engaging exhibition.
In this effort, the exercise has been collaborative. We agreed so often on the selections that it did seem as if we were kindred spirits regarding the art we considered and chose. No particular style, approach, or aesthetic dominates the works chosen. We looked for art that by its force of vision, its fresh slant on the world, and its vigorous use of medium seemed as if it should be among the works ultimately included.
Artist Alliance 2019 Biennial is OMA’s promise to celebrate the living artists of the region, and we hope visitors will enjoy viewing the work as much as we enjoyed the jurying process.
