The annual NextGen exhibition offers aspiring artists 17 to 27 years of age from the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) area, who have little to no exhibition record, the opportunity to bring their work to a wider audience.
This year’s NextGen 8.0 jurors are Fabiola R. Delgado, Nehemiah Dixon III, and Kenya Miles.
The exhibition is planned and realized by a dedicated team of gallery interns and volunteers with mentorship from the VisArts gallery staff.
“In its eighth iteration, the NextGen exhibition continues to impress and inspire. A rising generation is hard at work making powerful, thoughtful, and excellent artwork,” says Susan Main, Curatorial and Gallery Program Consultant at VisArts. “Behind every aspect of this exhibition is a passionate team of interns committed to bringing the work of promising artists into the light of the community.”
