701 CCA Announces the SC Biennial 2015 Jurors!

701 Center for Contemporary Art is seeking submissions for the 701 CCA South Carolina Biennial 2015, the center’s third survey exhibition of work by contemporary South Carolina artists. The exhibition will be held at 701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia. The 701 CCA S.C. Biennial 2015 will be presented in two parts with openings in September and November.

The goals of the Biennial exhibition are to provide a venue to showcase recent work reflecting local, regional and national trends and issues influencing contemporary artists living and working in South Carolina and to increase awareness and appreciation of the artistic contributions and accomplishments of the state’s visual artists. The exhibition draws on the breadth of the visual arts community by providing a multi-media juried statewide exhibition opportunity every two years.

A jury panel of three curators/critics representing local, regional and national perspectives will review submitted materials and select artists for inclusion in the exhibition. A 701 CCA curatorial team will select works for the exhibition through studio visits or from submitted images. The jurors selected are below.

South Carolina juror Frank Martin is an art historian at South Carolina State University in Orangeburg, S.C. He also used to be the director of the Stanback Museum at S.C. State.

Regional juror Lia Newman is the director and curator of the Davidson College galleries in Davidson, N.C.. Before that, she was the director of programs and exhibitions at Artspace in Raleigh, NC.

Peter Plagens is an artist and art critic in New York who writes a column for the Wall Street Journal every other week. He has a long track record of writing about art for such publications as Newsweek, Art in America, Artforum and others.
