Terra Incognita
Curious Matter
(Jersey City, NJ)

Curious Matter is proposing “Terra Incognita,” a Latin phrase associated with historical maps, meaning “unknown land,” as a departure point for an exhibition of work that explores unknown territory— whether that is a physical place, a psychic state, or the use or application of media. All media will be considered. Ideally, artwork should not exceed 24″(framed) in any direction for wall hung work. Owing to space limitations small work is most appropriate. However, larger work and sculpture will be considered. Video work will be considered and can be presented on small monitors.
