"Wherefore Art" is a group show inspired by the all-encompassing imagination of William Shakespeare — the entirety of the human condition: love, hate, jealousy, comedy, tragedy, madness, murder, witches, fairies, shipwrecks!
Every entry to the show must be accompanied by a quotation from a Shakespearean play or sonnet.
This group show is part of The Big Read - a 6-week, Jersey City-wide series of programs and events around a single book - "Station Eleven" by Emily St John Mandel is the selected book, and this group show reflects the importance of a troupe of actors performing Shakespeare in the plot of the novel.
All media of visual art will be considered.
Application deadline for 'Ancien Régime' at Village West Gallery is midnight on January 20, 2019. Applicants will be notified about acceptance in the show by February 3, 2019 - all accepted work must be at Village West no later than February 18.
The show will run from March 1 through May 5, 2019.
