Untitled 11 marks the eleventh year of SooVAC’s juried exhibition series. Untitled provides opportunities for artists working in any medium and at any stage of their career, resulting in a survey of varied perspectives and provocative work. The jurors were selected by Soo Visual Art Center from the local arts community.  Each year the jurors provide a unique aesthetic and differing intellectual concerns with the work that is selected, giving the public an opportunity to view fresh artistic voices with every new installment of Untitled.

This year’s exhibition will feature work of 18 artists from many disciplines, compelling materials and thought provoking concepts-ranging from microbial cultures and beaver tail prints to slip-cast bullets dispensed through a candy machine.

About this Year’s Jurors:
Caroline Kent is a visual artist and the co-founder of The Bindery Projects, an alternative exhibition space in St. Paul, a 2009 Jerome Fellow and has exhibited at The Suburban in Chicago and California African American Museum and the Washington Park Arts Incubator in Chicago to name a few.

Tom Rassieur is the John E. Andrus III Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and has previously worked at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Metropolitan Museum of Art.

A special thanks to our jurors, Caroline Kent and Tom Rassieur, for all of their work and care with selecting the artists out of a very large applicant pool of 190 submissions.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
