The 2014 edition of the New Jersey Arts Annual in Fine Art, Ready or Not, is an exhibition featuring works by 40 New Jersey-based artists, at different points of their careers. The works in the exhibition vary in practice and style. Using a wide range of artistic processes and approaches in color, form, material and content, this collective exhibition will raise questions about place and experience, expanding the conversation on the region’s identity, its narrative and context in relation to art.

 

About the New Jersey Arts Annual

The New Jersey Arts Annual is a unique series of exhibitions highlighting the works of visual artists in the state. The series is cosponsored by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts in partnership with major museums throughout the state including the Montclair Art Museum, the Morris Museum, the Newark Museum, The Noyes Museum of Art, and the New Jersey State Museum. Seeking to emphasize experimental approaches in contemporary art and ways in which interventions in space can transform the viewer’s experience and interaction, this exhibition was open to artists currently living or working in New Jersey. It was juried by Rocío Aranda-Alvarado, Curator at El Museo del Barrio, and Shlomit Dror, Consulting Curator of American Art at the Newark Museum, who also organized the show.
