‘The Gilded Age’ by Glenn Davis

 

“After mentoring winners during YoungArts’ signature programs in Miami and New York, it is a privilege to support YoungArts alumni across disciplines and present their work to an international audience. As a working artist, I know firsthand the challenges of making the leap from student to professional,” said Derrick Adams. “In curating the exhibition, what unfolded naturally was creating a meaningful dialogue between the works from these standout artists. They are each channeling the interests and concerns of their generation, in an effort to advance the conversation between generations in contemporary art.”

‘Raw Honey’ by Alyssa Ackerman

 

“During my time at PULSE, I refocused the fair to engage with the greater community in Miami, and now having co-founded a residency program, I get to do what I love—work directly with artists. YoungArts presented a perfect opportunity to combine my past and present endeavors to bring artists, nurtured here in Miami, to a global audience that looks to discover up-and-coming artists at PULSE,” said Helen Toomer.
