Residency at the Brant Gallery

Strangers & Kin: Artists, designers, and those in between
A collaborative art and research project
Brant Gallery, Massachusetts College of Art
January 27 – February 21, 2014

My beloved alma mater, Massachusetts College of Art, has invited me to repurpose their Brant Gallery into a working studio and collaborative design lab. My subject of inquiry is creativity, in its most broad sense. Here I'll continue the work I began while in residency at Stockholm's Nordisk Gästateljé, with the assistance and input of this richly creative and diverse community. Together we'll interview one another, gather insights and ideas, and brainstorm new ideas.

The gallery is situated among the classrooms and studios of the first year Studio Foundations program, and the residency conveniently coincides with the students' deadline to declare a major. I figure it'll be the perfect time to have company in my reflections on the differences and similarities, personal rewards and pains of making in its many forms. 

Generously supported by MassArt's Studio Foundation Department, as well as its staff and students.
