Artist Reception on September 23, 2016 | 6:00 to 8:00 pm

CASH AWARDS: Best in Show $1000

SANTIAGO CUCULLU is an internationally renowned artist who creates mixed media installations.  They are often arranged as elaborate, wall-sized murals that include sculpture and works on paper. Cucullu creates his vibrant works using a “duality of materials and appropriation to indicate the oscillation and ability of objects to collapse on themselves while activating an exhibition space.”  He currently resides in Boston and teaches at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA).  His work has been exhibited at the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; Museum of Modern Art, NY; Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla, CA; and Camden Arts Centre, London, which are merely highlights of Cucullu’s impressive resume (available online for additional information).

The deadline for submissions is midnight, Sunday, July 31, 2016.
