Tam sent the following message with her final selections:
"I was very moved by the artists' stories, their ever-present aesthetic signature, the personality and intention that comes through in both the application text and the actual artwork. I selected a combination of artists with career trajectories in dialogue with true raw talent that is just now being born.
There is so much honesty in the topic of healing, and I believe now more than ever that all art is healing. The final selection reflects what was most healing to me subjectively in tandem with what is most true to the times we are living which covers the whole spectrum of healing from societal, to domestic, personal, psychological, mental, physical, health, addressing the pandemic as well as intimate and collective traumas.
I discovered artists that I loved, and even though I could not accept all of them for this show, I will call many of them for other projects."
This show will be on view by August 2021. Stay tuned for details and featured artist highlights!
