Since opening in 2008, RedLine Contemporary Art Center has held an annual exhibition featuring work by artists in the residency program. 2017 will launch with Nice Work If You Can Get It featuring RedLine Resident Artists and curated by Daisy McGowan – Gallery Director & Curator for the Gallery of Contemporary Art, Colorado Springs. This exhibit will explore the reality of “making it” as an artist demands hard work, space and funding.
Nice Work If You Can Get It is a group exhibition that features twenty-nine current and recent alumni resident artists from RedLine. It is the first major exhibition of RedLine’s 2017 program and exhibition series, (dis)Place; a year-long exhibitions, place-making, and socially-engaged art projects. RedLine will feature exhibitions and programs that explore the depth and scope of what makes a Place important to those whose families helped build the neighborhood, the culture and cultures that make it vibrant, and those who have become new neighbors.
Nice Work If You Can Get It is the first exhibition in a five-part series entitled (dis)Place. This series was made possible thanks to the generous support of Denver Arts & Venues, Bonfils-Stanton Foundation, David & Laura Merage Foundation, and Scientific & Cultural Facilities District.
