Apexart Winner: CP '17 Liz Faust

February 21, 2020

Apexart announced CP '17 alum, Liz Faust, as one of four winners of its latest NYC open curatorial call for her exhibition, Elongated Shadows.  The finalists were selected from 512 submissions, rated by over 400 jurors who cast over 14,000 votes. 

Timed to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the nuclear bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Elongated Shadows presents works that address nuclear warfare and current tensions. Examining viewpoints of both American bombers/scientists and Japanese victims, featured works expand the conversation on the impact of nuclear bombs and reflect on issues of forgiveness, identity, and heritage.

Liz was also appointed Chief Curator at Catalyst Contemporary last year.  The local fine art gallery focuses on contemporary art rooted in storytelling. Located in Baltimore's Mount Vernon neighborhood - the cultural heart of the city, Catalyst forges relationships between artists, collectors, and both creative & civic-minded individuals. 

Congratulations on such powerful work, Liz!
