Confessions

Juried exhibition

April 1st- 30th, 2006


 

Jurors Statement:
Confession is often a reference to wrongdoing or the
concept of “sin,” but in the broader context, confessions can be any revelation. We are looking for work that discloses or reveals something about the creator, or perhaps about the process of confessing. The "act" of confession allows one to examine something that has been hidden. We hide things because we feel ashamed or inadequate and this causes psychic blockage. By re-introducing them later in our lives we can re-examine experiences with maturity - hopefully to release them and the stress they cause

Jurors Nancy Harlan and Pamela Grau Twena invite artists to submit work that might not be able to be shown anywhere else. The jurors are hoping to see work that speaks to the personal, to the artist and the act of creating and revealing. Orange County Center for Contemporary Art is devoted to the development and exploration of ideas in contemporary art in an atmosphere that promotes experimentation and risk-taking, without censorship.
