The Lexington Art League is seeking submissions for “Demographically Speaking, a Figurative Exhibition,” curated by Daniel Pfalzgraf, of the Carnegie Center for Art & History in New Albany, IN. While representations of the figure are at the forefront of this exhibition, Pfalzgraf lends a uniqueperspective to this exhibition by also requiring that artists complete a survey to accompany their work that focuses on diversity. The Lexington Art League’s mission is to reflect diversity and inclusion in all of their exhibitions and intends that this exhibition will reflect the vibrance of its community through the inclusion of works that speak to a diverse audience.

Given the power of figurative art to tell the stories that identify who we are, Demographically Speaking will also address the inequities found within gallery and museum exhibitions posing the question, “whose stories are being told in the art world?“
