Socrates is pleased to announce the opening of its fall exhibition featuring the latest works of 15 artists to watch.

In EAF13: 2013 Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition, 15 new commissions will be on view, each responding very specifically to the park’s unique waterfront, urban environment with conceptual and formal artworks that are visually compelling, subtly mysterious and, at times, provocative. Local and global subjects are presented along side one and other, with topics such as the history, ecology, and panorama of the park confronting broader topics of international politics, militarization, and culture. Rather than being a zeitgeist or thematic exhibition, each artist has a distinct artwork (and in some cases performance) that embodies his or her innovative exploration of sculpture in the public sphere.

This exhibition features the collective works of the park’s 2013 Emerging Artists Fellows, each chosen through a rigorous application process; the 2013 Fellows are: Thordis Adalsteinsdottir; Diann Bauer; Michael DeLucia; Tamara Johnson; Anthony Heinz May; David McQueen; Kenneth Pietrobono; Aida Sehovic; Sandy Smith; Edouard Steinhauer; Christopher Taylor; Justin Randolph Thompson; Hong-An Truong; Gustabo Velazquez; and Myung Gyun You.

The exhibition opening will take place at Socrates Sculpture Park from 2-6:00PM, and will include:

 - 4:00-5:00PM -- Participatory obstacle challenge by Aida Sehovic

 - 5:00-5:30PM -- Brutus Jones performance by Justin Randolph Thompson

EAF13 will remain on view through March 31, 2014.
