Open Call NXNE 2017 showcases 24 photographers and video artists from New England, New York

BRATTLEBORO — The new year brings new exhibits to the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center.

Open Call NXNE 2017 and “Change Your Mind: Carolyn Enz Hack,” open Saturday, Jan. 14, with a brunch reception, free and open to all, at 11 a.m.

Open Call NXNE 2017 is BMAC's latest juried exhibit. Approximately 150 photographers and video artists from New England and New York submitted work for consideration by juror Bernard Yenelouis of L. Parker Stephenson Photographs in New York City, according to a news release.

Yenelouis selected 24 artists for inclusion in the exhibit, with work encompassing inkjet and gelatin silver prints, cyanotypes, dye sublimation printing on fabric, video installation, digital animation, and leporello books.

In a statement accompanying the exhibit, Yeneoulis writes, “The intensely varied and thoughtful practices I saw are evidence that art practices are an important and challenging way to address the instability and flux of our current world. I hope that the generosity of what I saw is in evidence in my selection.”

Open Call NXNE 2017 remains on view through March 5.

“Change Your Mind” is an immersive installation designed for BMAC's Mary Sommer Room by Thetford-based artist Carolyn Enz Hack. It is made up of layers of mesh, screens, and reflective surfaces undulating above and around the viewer.

Change Your Mind remains on view through March 5. Hack will give a free talk at BMAC on Feb. 23 at 7 p.m.
