I was pleased to have the opportunity to adjudicate the Being Scene exhibition this year. Chris Mitchell’s well honed facilitation of physically viewing 350 or so works of art was just great. Choosing 50 was the hard part. As a jury we collaborated to narrow it down and one often wishes there was room for a few more. I’ve hung a few group shows and it always is quite thrilling how one sees conversations between different artist’s work start to form, the visual and/or thematic relationships, the pieces that whisper and the one’s that shout. As individuals, when it comes to visual art, the conversations that we hear are all a bit different. That’s the real reward. Thanks Chris, Sarah and Noa for a great experience and to all the artists who submitted.
