I just completed a fantastic 6-week online residency with Bonfire. If you scroll through the latest news, you’ll see that I’ve become a big fan of the virtual residency format. I love the structure and community they provide, especially in this year of long, slow, waiting. They have a few deadlines coming up for future residencies…take a look.
November 6, 2020
Over the past month, I’ve been attending two online residencies, one with World of Co, based in Bulgaria, and one School of Visual Arts, based in New York. It was a lot to juggle these two programs at the same time, but it was wonderful to feel challenged and busy after a few months of a much slower pace.

Per quanto tempo è per sempre opens today at Officine Giovani in Prato. The exhibition, which takes place in what were once the refrigerated cells of the meat-processing complex, reflects on the concepts of preservation and conservation in relation to the passage of time. Very pleased to be participating in the show with such a great group of artists. Curated by Spela Zidar and Leonardo Moretti.

For the past month I have been participating in an online residency with Proyecto ‘Ace, based in Buenos Aires. Before starting the residency I was uncertain that a virtual format could provide the community, support and structure that I was seeking for my practice, but I quickly realized that absolutely could. The theme of the residency, Together Apart: Shelter, was exactly what I needed. See work from the participants here.

After a long, strange spring, I am so grateful to have been invited to participate in So Close So Good at Numeroventi, in Florence. The exhibition brings together a selection of Florence-based artists to reflect on questions of borders, the local versus the global, and how our respective art practices will move forward from here. Visit the virtual exhibition here, or schedule an in-person viewing by contacting Numeroventi.
