“With an emphasis on BIPOC artists and disability arts integration, Open Call is the cornerstone upon which The Shed is growing and evolving as a civic cultural organization,” said Tamara McCaw, The Shed’s Chief Civic Program Officer. “The 11 artists featured in the Open Call 2023 Group Exhibition represent some of the most innovative and inspiring artists emerging in the visual arts today. This fall, we are thrilled to welcome neighbors, tourists, and all New Yorkers to experience their works, which explore urgent themes of reclamation, repatriation, resistance, healing, and access.”
The third edition of Open Call is organized by Tamara McCaw, Chief Civic Program Officer, and Darren Biggart, Director of Civic Programs, with Eduardo Andres Alfonso, Associate Curator at Large, and Deja Belardo, Curatorial Assistant. The exhibition is produced by MK Meador, Associate Exhibitions Coordinator and Registrar, and Freddy Villalobos, Associate Exhibitions Coordinator & Head Preparator.
