440 Gallery 16th Annual Small Works Show opens December 15

Brooklyn, NY – 440 Gallery is proud to present the 16th Annual Small Works Show, a national juried collection of artwork that celebrates innovation and creativity on a small scale, in a range of media and styles. This year’s exhibition will be accessible exclusively online through Artsy.net from December 15, 2020 through January 31, 2021.

Our juror, Anäis Duplan, was impressed by the element of play that came across in many of the entries submitted to the gallery. “[There were] such a remarkable number of different approaches, different kinds of beauty to be found. I was drawn to many of the more frenetic, playful and richly-colored pieces. There were also many instances of portraiture that I found playful. Play was definitely an exciting, influencing motif when curating this show.”

Anäis Duplan is a trans* poet, curator and artist. Duplan is the founder of the Center for Afrofuturist Studies, an artist residency program for artists of color, based at Iowa City’s artist-run Public Space One. As an independent curator, he has facilitated curatorial projects in Chicago, Boston, Santa Fe, and Reykjavík.
