SPACE is coming to Winthrop!!
Join us at the Harlow on Thursday, August 9 at 7pm when Amy Stacey Curtis will talk about her latest large scale biennial exhibition coming to Winthrop in October. Come find out how you can get involved!
Amy Stacey Curtis will be speaking about her long-term solo-biennial project in empty Maine mill spaces. In 1998, Curtis began what would be an 18-year commitment to art-making, a project culminating through 9 solo-biennial exhibits from 2000 to 2016. In the end, Curtis will have installed 81 large-in-scope, interactive installation and new-media works in the vast mills of 8 or 9 Maine, USA towns. Each solo-biennial exhibit is a 22-month process, each exhibit exploring a different theme while requiring audience to perpetuate its multiple installations.
The recipient of the Maine Arts Commission’s 2005 Individual Artist Fellowship for Visual Art and five Good Idea Grants, Curtis has committed to this work to convey that we are a part of a whole, that everyone and everything is connected and affects. Curtis’s seventh of nine biennials, SPACE, will take place October 6-26, 2012 throughout 27,500 square feet of Winthrop, Maine’s Winthrop Commerce Center, formerly Carlton Woolen Mill.
