Thirty Under 30: An International Young Artist Exhibition

Curator + Organizer, Acme Art Studios, Wilmington NC, 2015

Thirty Under 30-40.jpg

Thirty Under 30 began as a group show among art school friends, and grew into an international exhibition showcasing thirty emerging artists under the age of 30. A free, open call to artists restricted by no criteria other than age unleashed ambitious submissions from across the globe. The fresh eye of Thirty Under 30's curators and jurors enlivens this space with an honest vibrancy that uninhibitedly showcases painting, sculpture, and fibers alongside experimental video and interactive installation.
