Organized by Jamie Sterns
Exhibition Dates: November 17 – January 28th
Opening Reception, November 17th, 6-8pm
Andrew Edlin Gallery is pleased to announce a new project, Et Tu, Art Brute?, which will be on view in
our underground space.
What defines being an artist today? How does it feel to make art? Who is allowed to participate, and on
These are some of the questions that Et Tu, Art Brute? explores. This show has a very simple premise;
we invited everyone—no matter their background, ability, level of success or anonymity—to contribute an
original work of art.
The response to our Open Call has been extraordinary. Over 700 artists from over 250 cities from around
the globe have submitted. We will be rotating artworks throughout the exhibition to show as many as
possible. The exhibition setting is being conceived by artist, Quintessa Matragna.
