All-Media Juried Biennial returns to the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

The All-Media Juried Biennial
6-9 p.m. Friday, April 29 and run through June 5
Art and Culture Center of Hollywood
1650 Harrison St.
Admission is $10.

The biennial will feature works culled from a call to artists throughout Florida. This year’s jurors — artist Michelle Weinberg and Twenty Twenty Projects owner and director Scott Murray — selected 35 artists from 294 who submitted images of their works. The chosen include emerging and established artists such as Antonia Wright, Ruben Millares, Carrie Sieh, Jillian Mayer, Don Lambert, Susan Lee-Chun and Nicholas Arehart.

As a bonus there is another show opening at the museum; "She-Monster (Joan of Arc)" by Lisa Rockford.  As Rockford explains in her statement, “Segments appropriated from Barbies, monsters, Disney princesses, wrestlers, superheroes, etc., are joined seamlessly into portraits that are an unnerving assimilation of the iconography.” The imagery is meant to challenge viewers to “disband stereotypical notions of femininity and examine questions of gender, power, and persona.”
