Doctoral student Wylie Schwartz is soliciting proposals for the fourth edition of Arcades Project, a ‘curated art markeplace’ that Wylie co-founded in 2011. This year’s guest curators are Mara Baldwin, Assistant Director of the Handwerker Gallery at Ithaca College, and Clara Hess, a visual artist and co-director of ‘Complimenta,’ an artists’ residency program in Ithaca.
Arcades Project, started in 2011, is a curated, one-night event for the exhibition and sales of limited edition works produced by small and independent presses, artists, and other creative practitioners (art books, book arts, prints, image and text works, artist multiples). Arcades also hosts workshops, performances, screenings, and readings. Arcades, although an opportunity to sell work, is an event that hopes to subvert the expected context of commerce by switching themes and locations every year. This May will be the fourth incarnation of the Arcades Project– an event that wears many guises, at once a museum, a mall, a swap shop, a school, a pub, & a party.
