MouthWater – an exhibition curated by Robert Chambers at National YoungArts Foundation

Envisioned as a “feast of aesthetics in the visual arts” by curator Robert Chambers, the exhibition “MouthWater” metaphorically stands for and conceptually examines works of art as an outcome of the hunger, drive and determination it takes to create new work as an artist. “MouthWater” highlights the National YoungArts Foundation’s role as a platform for dynamic dialogue between artists across generations, as the participating artists’ shared history of experiencing participation in the YoungArts program between 1980 and 2016 anchors the exhibition.
