Nicelle Beauchene and Franklin Parrasch – cofounders of Parts & Labor in Beacon, NY. Nicelle Beauchene opened her eponymous gallery on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 2008 to promote the work of emerging local and international artists. In mounting over 12 years of exhibitions across multiple venues, Nicelle Beauchene has remained dedicated to championing emerging practices, building the careers of mid-career and historic artists, and contributing to the cultural dialogue in the US and abroad. Nicelle Beauchene was the President of the New Art Dealers Alliance from 2010-2017.

Franklin Parrasch Gallery began in 1986 with a program guided by a conscious reflection upon the process of creativity as it relates to human evolution. Over the past two decades, the gallery has established a profile of exhibiting Los Angeles artists whose careers emerged in the 1960s. The gallery consistently organizes shows that consider diverse evolutionary theories, with a focused sensitivity to the migration of ideas and aesthetic development as expressed by a wide range of artists who employ innovative practices.

In 2019, Nicelle Beauchene and Franklin Parrasch co-founded Parts & Labor Beacon, an exhibition space dedicated to staging two-person exhibitions. Creating specific conversations between younger, mid-career artists and their historically recognized predecessors, Parts & Labor Beacon’s intimate framing re-contextualizes standard histories of art. The project has worked with a range of artists including Lois Dodd, Shara Hughes, Xylor Jane, Ray Johnson, Al Loving, John McAllister, and Deborah Remington.

DEADLINEMarch 30, 2021

Far & Wide 2021 will be an exhibition focused on the concept and theme of Art Brut. Any subject matter and media are acceptable for this exhibition. Art brut is a French term, translating to ‘raw art’, to describe works made outside the academic tradition of art-making. Also referred to as ‘outsider art,’ this movement was created by Jean Dubuffet to focus on the raw expression of a vision or emotions. The jurors will be looking for works that incorporate a unique use of materiality, modes of expression, and works outside the conventional dictates of the art world. Submissions can range from (but aren’t limited to) painting, sculpture, video, photography, drawing, sound, and music.
