The fifth annual Art of the South exhibition, presented by Number. Featuring work by artists from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington DC.
The exhibition is juried by Brian R. Jobe, artist, educator, independent curator, and co-director of Locate Arts based in Nashville, TN.
"The Art of the South 2018 exhibition presents work born of varied, dynamic, and expansive art practices created by artists living and working in the Southeastern United States. More specifically, it is an exhibit that reveals the experimental energy and consciousness of Southern artists working in a range of media and features a confluence of images, forms, linguistic devices, and ideas.
It’s certainly the case that global digital communication and the growth of visual interfaces has contributed to the further decentralization of the art world and the South is a geographic and cultural zone with facets not always seen, studied, or contextualized. The artists in this show unpack some of those nuances in a way that gives the assemblage of these works of art a particular force."
