Salon 48 @ the mood room
Salon 48 is based on a exhibition model of radical inclusivity. This “unjuried show” takes place each year on the same night as Artlink’s Annual Juried Exhibition, with a call going out for participation just 48 hours before opening night festivities. The call is open to anyone living in state 48 at the time of the announcement and the only restriction is that they cannot have shown in any of Artlink’s previous exhibitions, projects or promotions.
The inaugural exhibit of Salon 48 debuted a wide variety of artworks that ranged from the political to the comedic, from classical representations to iconic pop imagery, as well as a touch of nearly everything inbetween. Painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and an installation art were on display for the opening night of the mood room with a packed house of 2000+ visitors.
