(This is an excerpt from the A&V Handbook by Miryam Rodriguez, A&V 2009.)

The host institution must approve all participating artists. Students are strongly encouraged to work from the list of eligible artists. Students should not invite an artist to participate and then seek approval from the host institution.  Rather research an artist, form a consensus within your group, get approval from the institution, and then ask the artist. Reaching a group consensus is vital. Everyone must engage the artwork and the artist. The artist should be familiar with and to everyone in the group. There is no such thing as a “messenger” student a.k.a.-the student who does all the communicating. Remember, you will be writing an artist biography and a paper as a group; so make sure everyone has contributed in the selection of the artist. You should not feel shy about asking the artist as many practical questions as possible. You are showing his/her work, the more you know about his/her work, the better.

It is important to not select an artist too early.   Curators should be familiar with the artist and his/her body of work prior to requesting participation in A&V.

Consider the following:

  1. The artist’s work should engage you.  Do not focus on solely the decorative nature of the artwork or the popularity of the artist.  Rather, consider what kind and how powerful of a social, intellectual, or emotional reaction the work provokes.
  1. Consider how accessible the artist is.  Will the artist be easy to work with?  Will the artist have time to meet with you?  Will the artist enter into a serious curatorial relationship with you?
  1.  The artist should be a professional working artist.  That is, the artist must be regularly making and exhibiting works.
  1. Think about the work throughout the year. You may feel one way about the artwork and the artist at the beginning and another way once the year is over. Those types of developments are important to your overall experience. Feel free to look at all the works the artist has created, and do not limit yourself to the works your group has ultimately selected for the show.


The following is a list of South Florida artists that students may choose to invite to participate in the Aesthetics & Values exhibition at the Frost Art Museum.  All artists should have a strong and consistent exhibition record. Artists not on this list may be considered for the A&V exhibition, if approved by the Frost Art Museum.   If A&V students want an artist not on the list to be considered, they must send the name to Professor John Bailly, who will in turn submit it to the Frost.

Faculty, employees, and current students of FIU are not eligible to participate.

For the Aesthetics & Values 2016 exhibition, artists that have participated in A&V exhibitions prior to 2010 are eligible to participate. Artists are indicated by the listing of the year they participated in A&V by the year listed next to their name (ex, TM Sisters: A&V 2010). Any artist with an A&V 2013 – 2017 listing next to their name is not eligible.

The Frost Art Museum determines the list of eligible artists for A&V.
