FATE 2023: National Juried Members Exhibition Call

Seeking artwork informed by the 2023 FATE conference theme: Serious Play. A broad range of materials, media, styles, and interpretations are encouraged surrounding the ideas of bridging the mischievous nature of creative exploration and the high stakes of what lies ahead for art, design, education, community, culture, and the climate. Both the conference and Member Exhibition are an opportunity to expand our understanding of how playful curricula and serious inquiry merge to create a hopeful curiosity for what is to come.

Kaitlin Garcia-Maestas

Exhibition Juror and Conference Keynote Speaker

The 2023 FATE conference committee is honored to have Kaitlin Garcia-Maestas, Acting Curator of Visual Arts at the Momentary in Bentonville, AR, as this year’s exhibition juror and conference keynote speaker. Kaitlin was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Her research and curatorial interests have been primarily devoted to exploring themes of decolonial resistance, displacement, and cultural heritage in the United States and the Americas. 


While at the Momentary, Kaitlin has organized several artist-driven projects and exhibitions with notable artists including Diana Al-Hadid, Garrett Bradley, Rashawn Griffin, Esteban Cabeza de Baca; and forthcoming exhibitions including Yvette Mayorga’s first solo museum exhibition and Firelei Baez’s largest sculptural installation to date (organized by ICA Boston). Prior to joining the Momentary, Kaitlin held curatorial positions at the Denver Art Museum, the Biennial of the Americas, and MCA Denver, establishing her deep connection to the Denver-metro and regional art communities. With Kaitlin’s knowledge of this year’s hosting institution location paired with her national and international curatorial reach and knowledge, we are thrilled to connect her to FATE members’ work and practice.


All media are eligible. The exhibition is open to members of FATE. Current FATE membership is required by February 15, 2023, in order to exhibit. Please visit the FATE website for more information on how to join or renew your membership. 


FATE is committed to being inclusive by encouraging participation from a diverse range of voices within underrepresented identities and communities. In addition, we encourage participation from a wide spectrum within the artistic community.
