FICTIONS - extended

@The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, NY

curated by Connie H. Choi and Hallie Ringle

 

Fictions has been extended a week so please come out to see some amazing art! I will also be in Harlem the evening of December 14 giving a stop motion animation workshop. If you feel like animating with me, do stop by!

 

“NEW YORK, NY, August 23, 2017— The Studio Museum in Harlem today named nineteen artists to be featured in Fictions, the fifth in the Museum’s signature “F-show” series of emerging artist exhibitions. Hailing from across the United States, the artists in Fictions engage with a variety of media—including video, photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation—as they investigate the complexities of the contemporary moment.

 

On view September 14, 2017 to January 7, 2018, Fictions, organized by Connie H. Choi, Associate Curator, Permanent Collection, and Hallie Ringle, Assistant Curator, examines the stories that form the foundation of these artists’ practices, from the personal to the political and the everyday to the imagined. Fictions will be on view with We Go as They: Artists in Residence 2016–17, filling the galleries with two of the Museum’s most eagerly anticipated exhibition initiatives.

 

‘Since its founding in 1968, the Studio Museum has been strongly committed to supporting and showcasing the work of emerging artists,’ said Director and Chief Curator Thelma Golden, ‘I am thrilled that Hallie and Connie are continuing the legacy of our beloved ‘F-shows’ with a new presentation of a diverse group of artistic voices, bringing to Harlem insightful perspectives from locations around the country, including Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, and Texas.’

 

Echoing its predecessors Freestyle (2001), Frequency (2005–06), Flow (2008), and Fore (2012–13), the title Fictions refers to both the narratives that artists create and the stories that they refute in their work. Most of the artists in Fictions are presenting work at the Studio Museum for the first time, yet they all share concerns at the core of the Studio Museum’s mission, including questions around race and identity and the values of African-American, Latinx, U.S., and global artistic communities. Together, their works demonstrate the diversity and vitality of artistic practice in the United States today.”

 

“Fictions” extended until January 15
