Youth artists paired with professional artists in their medium of interest convene together each week at Southern Exposure, splitting into pairs and rejoining to collaborate as a group throughout the year. The mentees learn new skills, develop projects with their mentors, participate in group critiques and share their experiences.
This year, mentors and mentees collaboratively explore the differences between digital and analog technology – and the impact such technologies have on their daily lives. Working in painting and drawing, photography, sculpture, video, body painting and other media, this interdisciplinary group show presents the work of the accomplished artists from Southern Exposure’s year-long program.
