Target Gallery, contemporary exhibition space of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, invites national and international artists working in all-media to apply to Interlude: Unfinished Works. This exhibition gives the spotlight to the artistic process. Curator Betsy Johnson of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden is the juror.
Interlude: Unfinished Works will include artwork left both intentionally and unintentionally unfinished, giving insight to the artist’s hand and methodology. The unresolved and open ended nature of the art gives the viewer new context of the themes and meanings of the works created.
