This exhibition features works by emerging artists who have participated in the 2010 Studio LLC. A year-long program, Studio LLC is a pilot program JCAL has introduced last year to help emerging artists run their studio in a small-business model. 20 emerging artists have participated in the program last year. They met once a month for various seminars provided by invited professionals and established artists who shared their experience and knowledge with the artists. The past lectors include Jackie Battenfield (artist and art administrator), Omar Lopez-Chahoud (curator), Myron Gold (marketing professor), Emily Gray (insurance professional), John L Moore (artist), Dennis Oppenheim (artist), Lilly Wei (critic), Martha Wilson (not-for-profit administrator) and others.
The curator of the exhibition comments: "The artists participating in the 2010 Studio LLC program were under 30 at the time of application, and within three years of their most recent degree. Most are in their late twenties. Not only does their work represent a cross-section of the diverse artistic practices currently co-existing in the New York art world, but it represents the point of view of a specific generation."
