The National Academy Museum & School is pleased to announce the opening of the 6th annual exhibition Creative Mischief.
Conceived and curated by Maurizio Pellegrin, National Academy School Dean, in 2012, Creative Mischief began as a one-day exhibition. It has evolved into a month-long exhibition featuring a diverse roster of National Academicians, faculty members, and emerging artists and students who are honing their talents at the Academy. Little Mischief, a week-long subset exhibition by children of the Young Artists program.
Creative Mischief will debut over 100 works representing a broad spectrum of artistic disciplines: abstract and figurative painting, site-specific installation, sculpture, photography, prints, video, animation, and performance. Subjects range from enduring concepts of beauty, transformation, and truth to temporal issues of social injustice, and the political turmoil of today.
“Creative Mischief is the National Academy’s largest, most diverse, and inclusive consortium of artistic voices who are making art at the Academy. Daring, playful, and poetic works by artists from dozens of countries around the globe will be on view to the public”, said Pellegrin. “Featured artists are profoundly committed to expressing the creative powers of their life force.”
