Juror: Dennis Svoronos, interactive sculptor

ABOUT THE JUROR:Dennis Svoronos’ work exists between art and engineering; it is inspired by the modern world in motion. He uses his sculpture to reflect this environment charged with electricity, spectacle, and information. He uses a common language of the 21st century -- electronics, robotics, and interactive kinetics -- to build connections between the viewers and the work. In a society fractured by technology, Svoronos uses it to bring everyone together. Currently, he is making work in response to his recent diagnosis of brain cancer, seeking to use his art as a platform to question sickness, wellness, and recovery.
Dennis Svoronos is a Boston-based sculptor whose work has been shown nationally and internationally. He holds a diploma from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Tufts University as well as a Masters in Fine Art from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Svoronos has been represented locally by the Boston Sculptors Gallery since 2012 and his work has been exhibited at numerous institutions and galleries such as the MFA, Boston; the Norton Museum of Art, Palm Beach, FL; G.A.S.P Brookline, MA; and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Lake Worth, FL. Svoronos has also been the recipient of numerous awards and public work commissions. Currently, he is visiting faculty in Graduate Studies and Sculpture at Massachusetts College of Art and Design as well as Northeastern University’s College of Art, Media and Design.
There will be a cash prize of $500 for Best in Show, along with various other cash prizes. There will be an awards reception on June 3rd, from 5-7pm.
