My name is TopTop and I run the viral Instagram account @topainterstopaintings.I have online exhibitions every couple months with a guest curator.I am very excited to announce that applications are now open for the next online exhibition!!
An art professional has been chosen to curate the online exhibition by selecting works from the open call. It is up to the curator how many works to select. The online exhibition will be carefully considered by the curator, the work selected will be posted on my website and my Instagram account.
The guest curator for the third online exhibition will be Steve Turner from Steve Turner Gallery.
Steve Turner opened his first gallery in Los Angeles in February 1988 and has been in continuous operation ever since. During the gallery’s first fifteen years, the focus was on the rediscovery of overlooked artists and art histories. Artists of particular focus were William H. Johnson, Henrietta Shore, Knud Merrild and Everett Gee Jackson. In 2007, the gallery changed direction to focus primarily on emerging artists and over the last dozen years has presented hundreds of exhibitions, many of which were debut solo exhibitions. The gallery also participates in eight to ten art fairs each year.
Among the artists to have solo exhibitions at Turner’s Wilshire Blvd (2007-2014) and Santa Monica Blvd (2015 to present) galleries are Maria Anwander, Aaron Aujla, Edgardo Aragon, Otto Berchem, Joaquin Boz, Diedrick Brackens, Mark Bradford, Joshua Callaghan, Graham Collins, Petra Cortright, John Dilg, Dominic Dispirito, Noah Doely, Nick Doyle, Zachary Drucker, Hannah Epstein, Rico Gatson, Kate Gilmore, James Gobel, Deborah Grant, Luis Hidalgo, Ann Hirsch, Greg Ito, Parker Ito, Jon Key, Luciana Lamothe, Jonas Lund, Antonio Vega Macotela, Leo Marz, Carlos Martiel, Kevin McNamee-Tweed, RJ Messineo, Claire Milbrath, Adam Miller, Paige Jiyoung Moon, My Barbarian, Maria Nepomuceno, Camilo Ontiveros, Eamon Ore-Giron, Edgar Orlaineta, Hannah Perry, Pope L, Pablo Rasgado, Camilo Restrepo, Ryder Ripps, Francisco Rodriguez, Gabby Rosenberg, George Rouy, Rafael Rozendaal, Shizu Saldamando, Joshua Saunders, Rebecca Shippee, Michael Staniak, Augustus Thompson, Brittany Tucker, Phil Wagner, Ishmael Randall Weeks, Audrey Wollen and Yung Jake.
Turner has done more than one thousand studio visits in recent years. There was a phase where he did one a day in Los Angeles, another where he travelled to Mexico City several times a year to do a week of studio visits. He has travelled to Lima, Buenos Aires, Bogota, and Rio De Janeiro to do visits, and in recent years, he has done many in person studio visits in Berlin and London. He is regularly in New York and he also does numerous Skype visits with artists he has discovered on Instagram. He is always ready to meet a new artist and looks forward to making many new discoveries in 2020.
