The AMoA Biennial 600: Textile/Fiber will be an exhibition of artworks selected by a juror from entries submitted by artists residing within a 600-mile radius of Amarillo, Texas. The exhibition will be on view October 11—December 22, 2019.
JUROR: Alec Unkovic
Alec Unkovic is the Exhibitions Manager at The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, PA. With FWM since 2013, in his role he has managed major projects of new work by renowned contemporary artists including Janine Antoni, Suzanne Bocanegra, Sonya Clark, Ann Hamilton, and Ursula von Rydingsvard. He received his BA in Classics from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. Prior to FWM, Unkovic was the Tang Museum’s inaugural Eleanor Linder Winter ’43 Endowed Intern, and was the Dallas Museum of Art’s 2012-2013 McDermott Curatorial Intern for Contemporary Art. His curatorial projects include Twisted Domestic at the Tang Museum, Drawing You In at the Fort Worth Drawing Center, and FWM’s 2021 exhibition by artists-in-residence Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley.
AMoA Biennial 600: Textile/Fiber is the eighth in an ongoing series of juried biennial exhibitions exploring specific areas of artistic practice, material, and content. Previous exhibition focuses include Drawing (’05), Clay (‘07), Glass (‘09), Figurative Painting (‘11), Printmaking (‘13), Sculpture (’15), and Architecture (’17). This year, the AMoA staff and Board of Trustees are excited to offer the museum’s exhibition spaces to artists working with textiles/fiber.
Any artwork consisting primarily of textile/fiber materials and technique may be submitted for consideration. Artists whose work could be sited outdoors are encouraged to submit proposals, as are artists with installation-based practices (though the nature of the museum’s exterior and interior spaces does impose limits). Artists whose work requires exceptionally challenging handling or installation may be required to assist with installation and de-installation on-site.
The AMoA will publish a brochure to document the exhibition. Four awards will be chosen by the juror: Best of Show, 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place. Images of these works will be included in the publication. Each participating artist will receive two copies of the AMoA Biennial 600: Textile/Fiber brochure.
There is no entry fee.
Artists must be 18 years of age or older and reside within a 600-mile radius of Amarillo, Texas.
Artists may submit images or video of up to three artworks with a maximum of three additional detail images of each work. Please clearly title images as details or alternate views of the primary artwork being submitted.
The museum does not take a commission on works sold as a result of the exhibition. Interested buyers will be referred directly to the artist.
