Junk in the Trunk. Juror Natalia Arbelaez
Junk in the Trunk is a multi-media multi-medium show featuring artists who work with any and all materials. From video, clay, to glitter and everything in-between! Craft often lives on the edges of the fine arts and multi-medium/media artists will even be on the outskirts of the outskirts. This show is a celebration of artists who live in that borderland. The queer, the othered, the funk, and the sub-cultured. These artists love material but will not care to “blasphemously” glue rhinestones to that dance.
The exhibition celebrates the eclectic environment that is incubated in Baltimore and exported beyond! Home to John Waters and the American Visionary Art Museum, Baltimore gives permission to artists to use whatever is on hand to complete your expression and provides the perfect and blessed backdrop. While clay is the initial inspiration for the artworks, these makers will utilize any materials to complete that inspiration.
