U of M Creates New Venue for Unusual Artworks
For release: October 19, 2000
For more information, contact Gabrielle Maxey

Artists whose work is out of the mainstream will soon have a new venue for their projects. ArtLab is being launched by The Art Museum of The University of Memphis to show new, experimental and under-represented work.

Artists are invited to submit proposals for the February-June 2001 exhibition period. Selections will be made no more than six months in advance of the show. Exhibits will change about every four weeks.

The works may push the boundaries of creative expression. They may be beautiful, funny, stark, disturbing or thoughtful. ArtLab is intended to be a forum for works in progress.

"We're not going in with any preconceived ideas," says Lisa Francisco, AMUM's assistant director. "Part of the problem is that artists can't find space unless they're established, and they can't get established unless they show their work."

ArtLab presentations will be shown in Gallery C, the smallest of the museum's spaces for temporary exhibitions. AMUM will provide support with installation, lighting and publicity, along with a $250 honorarium at the project's end. The artist agrees to provide all materials and labor required for the exhibition and to give one gallery talk.

For more information, call 901-678-2224 or visit the museum's Web site at www.amum.org.
