Ancien Régime: the pre-revolutionary world

October 5 — December 9, 2018

painting by Juan Pablo Salinas (1871-1946)

What are the conditions that bring about revolution? The excesses of the 1%? The .001%? Social injustice? Corruption? Despotism? Radicalism? Boulangeries with neither bread nor cake?

Ancien Régime: the pre-revolutionary world explores society before a revolution, the forces that swell before bursting. The original term ancien régime refers to France prior to 1789, but our own world feels ripe for revolution, and the artist's place is at the forefront, working to change the world.

The Ancien Régime application is now closed. Accepted artists will be announced by September 10, 2018.
