Variable Gain: 2017 Artist INC Cohort Exhibition

  • Michael Phipps Gallery - W. Dale Clark Main Library 215 South 15th Street Omaha, NE, 68102 United States (map)

Opening: Friday, January 5, 2018; 4:00 - 6:00 PM

Omaha Creative Institute is dedicated to making Omaha a city where artists can more fully engage in their respective practices through providing professional development, artist grants, exhibition opportunities, and connections to wider audiences. One of our programs, Artist INC, brings together 25 Omaha-area artists for 8 weeks each year to share skills, evaluate work, and build communities of peers. Each cycle ends with a curated group exhibition that underscores the diversity and conceptual preoccupations of emerging artists living and working in Omaha. 

For this year’s exhibition, Variable Gain, chance will be the conceptual point of departure to build an exhibition that assesses the generative qualities of experimentation, failure, and self-reflection. Inherit aspects within each individual work will speak to the process of reexamining, reformatting, and re-contextualizing when taking creative risks, rolling the dice, and letting them land where they may.
