The Art Directors Club is pleased to release the names of the 35 young professionals selected for the biennial exhibition ADC Young Guns 4. Collectively, they represent the convergent fields of visual communications: advertising, graphic design, environmental design, film/video, photography, illustration and new media. A list of artists follows. View bios and portfolios of ADC Young Guns 4.
To celebrate the fourth exhibition, ADC expanded the once exclusive New York, invitational only exhibition into a worldwide competition. Entries - full bodies of work - were received from 21 countries. All entries were reviewed and 35 selected by a committee of cross-industry professionals including MTV Networks' Mike Joyce, Virgin Records' Sean Mosher-Smith, Ogilvy & Mather's Bill Oberlander, and provocative photographer Ellen Stagg, among others.
ADC Young Guns 4 will be on view at the ADC Gallery located at 106 W. 29th Street in Manhattan, September 9 October 30, 2004, before traveling abroad. Venues and dates to be announced. A full color catalog will be available at the New York opening reception.
