From the gallery:
This summer, the Institute of Contemporary Art, San Diego will host the first NextGen: Graduating Artist Exhibition, which celebrates the San Diego/Tijuana art scene.

NextGen is an exhibition that aims to support recently graduated artists while also fostering the local art ecosystem.

Applications by graduating artists from interdisciplinary backgrounds were reviewed by a panel of professionals and experts in the art field. This year, the jury was comprised of Los Angeles-based artist Beatriz Cortez; Artistic Director of Bread and Salt in San Diego, Isabel Dutra; and curator at the Pérez Art Museum Miami, María Elena Ortiz.

Seven artists were selected based on their artistic skill, conceptual approach, and innovation: María Antonia Eguiarte Souza, Victor Castaneda, beck haberstroh, Isidro Pérez García, Dianne Preciado, Gideon Sawyer, and Matt Williams.

By providing space for local artists and encouraging professional development, ICA San Diego fosters inclusive approaches towards building our region as a vibrant destination for contemporary visual arts. We strengthen ties within the local arts community and create a more fertile ground for emerging careers in the arts.
