Jurors: Poet laureate John Koethe, interdisciplinary artist Nirmal Raja, and interdisciplinary artist/Fulbrighter/author and professor Dr. Nathaniel Stern will select a body of work that attempts to convey, in all its ephemeral and indefinable truth…BEAUTY. 

“Beauty is difficult, Yeats.” ~ Aubrey Beardsley

 

“I think that happiness, innocence and beauty are the first concern of everybody… think that everybody is concerned and that, if they don’t have any experience of these positive emotions, they really crack up. Thats how important I think they are. You see, we are educated in the intellectual and ego side of things – that’s the orientation of our culture – and so the other, happiness, innocence and beauty, has to be stressed. I’ll tell you the difference between the intellectual response and the artist’s response: the intellectual response is about facts and reaching decisions – reduction, classification, logic – everything we’ve been educated in. That’s the intellectual response. And then there’s the intuitive response. That’s what art is about.” ~ Agnes Martin

 

from Andy Warhol:

Can you imagine more fantastic jurors to explore the theme of beauty than a poet laureate and two of the most innovative, celebrated visual artists around? We couldn’t. There is no one discipline guiding them. They will judge “beauty” on everything and nothing…the everything and nothing that delivers a powerful wallop…or a gentle sweet sigh. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but in this case it starts in your lens.
