Call for artists: The Art of Healing

The Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA), in collaboration with NY–Presbyterian – The Allen Hospital, is seeking submissions for NoMAA’s next exhibition entitled “The Art of Healing”. Guest-curated by Gabriel de Guzman (Curator of Visual Arts at Wave Hill), this exhibition will present work by uptown artists who are exploring the theme of healing, whether figuratively, conceptually, literally, or abstractly.

The body is remarkable for its ability to heal, as evidenced by the outstanding work at the Allen Hospital. During uncertain times, it is equally important for the psyche to remain healthy as well. Artists are invited to submit works that evoke the idea of healing and that investigate this dual capacity for corporal and emotional renewal. In the context of this place of healing, restoring patients to well-being is as much an everyday occurrence as it is an extraordinary one.
