Inside Voices: A Members' Exhibition in partnership with the Fitchburg Art Museum

At a moment when we’re all being asked to stay inside, interior spaces have become heightened reflective zones. Inside Voices prompts artists to consider a wide range of interiors, including domestic environments, psychological subjectivity, bodies, architecture, and sculptural containment. These spaces reveal symbolic weight, mental and emotional states, fantasy worlds, gender roles, and personal memories. We invite you to turn inward and explore these interior spaces for their potential energy and revelatory power.
 
For this ninth Call and Response collaboration between ArtsWorcester and the Fitchburg Art Museum, artists must respond not only to the theme, but directly to one (or more) of ten artworks on loan from the Museum. At the time of registration artists will be required to name the FAM artwork(s) that inspired their piece. Explore the loan below. Read on for registration requirements for the call for art.
 
The Fitchburg Art Museum’s curatorial staff will select ten works from Inside Voices to be exhibited at FAM with the selected works from the Museum’s collection.
 
We thank our friends and partners at the Fitchburg Art Museum for sharing their collection so generously with our artists.
