Last Supper 2010 Curatorial Theme: “Self-Made” (Statement by Coralina Meyer)
The Last Supper Salon 2010 will explore the creative individual as a self-made person and provocateur of social change. In contrast to the male robber baron of our industrial age, the contemporary version of the ‘self-made man’ is an artist of any gender, discipline; someone who is cross-cultural and cross-national, and someone tapped in to the individual as part of the border-less, collective wisdom created by open source ideas sharing. Humanity is transforming it’s identity to fit the current needs of a new economy, and socio-political environment. Using an experimental, multi-sensory, collaborative approach, we hope to critique the way we produce the goods and services that define our generation, the way we consume media, products and our environment, and the way open dialog, DIY and technology promotes self-made identity prototypes.
Art Curator’s Statement by Alison Levy & Jeremy Funston & Douglas Turner (DAJ)
The art curation will incorporate the idea of “Self-Made” into our consumptive practice. From the ‘self-made man/woman’ to the do-it-yourself, make-it-yourself, design-your-life reality we live in, the individual can be a centripetal force in society. The resilience of the human spirit to allows us to overcome challenges and become heroes- to dream, invent, and to create new work. We are looking for artists who are examining the nature of the Self-Made in ways that relate to culture, narcissism, world change, interconnected systems, future visions and creative enlightenment. Accepted media includes: painting, sculpture, video art, design, invention, performance, interactive works or project-based collaborations.
