Young Exhibition Makers (Y.Ex) 2019 met Kings County Hospital on March 2 to begin planning this year’s exhibition! Following up on last year’s success, the cohort will be planning an even larger show in the main lobby of the hospital’s D-building.

Y.Ex is producing their own exhibition modeled after No Longer Empty’s site-responsive practice, and are seeking artwork submissions by teen artists exploring the following themes: police brutality and government oppression, mental health, identity, human rights, peace, and people of color.

All works submitted will be showcased in an online gallery, and those chosen for the exhibition will be awarded a $20 Blick Art Supplies gift certificate as well as mention on the Y.Ex online archive. Applications and more information about the call for submissions are available here.

The deadline to apply is Friday March 29 at 11:59pm.
