Systems Failure Closing Reception with Sarah Tanguy

Target Gallery's Closing Reception to meet the artists for Systems Failure
Thursday September 23rd 6-8pm

"By turns witty and serious, the artists in Systems Failure share a deep concern for the current state of the world, while maintaining their individual emotional and conceptual perspectives." - Sarah Tanguy, juror

This exhibition examines the current crises facing our country and the world and the plight of the people who must suffer from these failures. Our juror for this exhibition is Sarah Tanguy, an independent curator, arts writer and critic, as well as, a curator for the Art in Embassies Program based in Washington DC. Tanguy chose 39 works for the exhibition that poetically express the human cost of these breakdowns.

Sarah Tanguy will provide a gallery talk at 7pm during the reception to discuss her choices for the exhibition.

The Target Gallery, national exhibition space of the Torpedo Factory, promotes high standards of art by continuously exploring new ideas through the visual media in a schedule of national and international exhibitions. Located on the waterfront in Old Town Alexandria, VA. The gallery is open daily from 10-6pm and until 9pm on Thursdays.
