The Watermill Center's Artist Residency Program

The Watermill Center’s Artist Residency Program began in 2006, when The Center officially opened as a year-round facility. Each year collectives and individuals take up residence at The Center to live and develop works that critically investigate, challenge and extend the existing norms of artistic practice.

The Artist Residency Program is process-based, without the expectation or promise of a final exhibition of the work. Watermill provides artists with time and space to focus on developing their practice in a communal environment that encourages experimentation. Artists-in-Residence share their creative process with the community through open rehearsals, workshops and artist talks.

Artists-in-Residence receive access to an extensive collection of resources central to the Watermill experience: 20,000 square feet of rehearsal/design spaces and outdoor stages; a theater production archive (housed in New York City); The Watermill Center Study Library; The Watermill Collection; and The Center’s ten acre landscaped grounds and gardens.

“Read My Lips: Loren Britton & Kerry Downey” at the Knockdown Center

Read My Lips


 

Opening reception Nov 5, 7 – 9pm
Oct 28 – Dec 18


Read My Lips brings together recent paintings and sculpture made by Loren Britton and video and prints by Kerry Downey. Although working in different media, both artists tangle with representing marginalized bodies, problems of language, and the complexity of subject formation in a binary world.

Downey’s textured monotypes, many of which are embossed or use chine-collé, hang alongside Britton’s anthropomorphic plush sculpture and large four-by-five foot paintings, which sit on blocks. Downey’s projected video piece is paired with several more of Britton’s sculptures — these made to be used as seating.

Both series of work are grounded in a consideration of embodiment. The exhibition title takes the mouth specifically as a site from which to examine some of the central issues of this show: It is a source of language, an entrance to the interior, and a site of desire.

These artists also explore a politic of non-visibility through languages of abstraction. Refusing visibility is an important tenet of the constellation of art practices that have been termed Queer Abstraction, a moniker not without its own limitations.  While many queer and feminist artists — Harmony Hammond, Louise Fishman, Joan Snyder, to name just a few — have worked in abstraction since the 1970s, a new generation of queer, genderqueer, and transgender artists are taking up the style to deal with issues of gender, and in this case, to talk about the body without explicitly signifying it.  In his recent research, art historian David J. Getsy has asked, “What happens when the body is invoked but not imaged?”

In such a mode of image-making, abstract art exceeds binary constraint; the body is posited as a catalog of sensory experiences and a place of flux. In Britton and Downey’s hands, abstraction becomes a space of infinite possibility where multiplicity is the principal feature. The work plunges us into indeterminacy and makes us step outside of prevailing modes of understanding selfhood and language. There is no finality, no fixed meaning, no stability.

Loren Britton is an artist and curator based in New Haven, CT. Britton’s work explores hybridity in image and form. They create things that exist between drawing, painting, and sculpture.

Britton holds a BFA & BA from SUNY Purchase and they are currently an MFA candidate in Painting at the Yale School of Art.

Downey’s work explores how we interact with each other physically, psychologically, and socio-politically. Encompassing video, printmaking, and performance, their work wrestles with the possibilities and limitations of gender, intimacy, and relationality in late capitalist America. Recent exhibition venues include the Queens Museum, Flushing, NY; EFA Project Space, New York, NY; Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Los Angeles, CA; the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, Annandale, NY; the Drawing Center, New York, NY; and Taylor Macklin, Zurich, Switzerland.  In 2015, Downey was awarded the Joan Mitchell Foundation Emerging Artist Grant.  Residencies and Fellowships include SHIFT at the EFA Project Space, the Drawing Center’s Open Sessions, Real Time and Space in Oakland, CA, the Vermont Studio Center, and the Queer/Art/Mentorship Fellowship.

In accordance with this shows theme "Pure Abstraction 2"– artists have been selected whose language for creating art is pure abstraction with little to no depiction of the real world (as in nonrepresentational). This work relies on form, color, and concept to create an abstract work of art with little or no reference to the external world. This selection of work provides the viewer with a clear lineage to the Abstract Expressionism in post-World War II America. These works present the artist’s vision in their uniquely personalized languages.

This July, Agora Gallery presents two collective exhibitions to re-imagine and reinvigorate the world. Répartie in Art presents the work of international artists as they tackle the concept of “space” and those who occupy it. From landscapes to fragments of a scene, from human or animal subjects to something more abstract, the works open a dialog between artist and audience on a variety of levels. Rhapsody in Color is an exhibition of immeasurable vibrancy, presenting expert combinations and groupings of hue to produce carefully calculated reactions in the viewer. By applying their manipulations of color to a variety of subjects, the featured artists add their thumbprint to familiar and foreign scenes to establish worlds of their own.


The exhibitions open on July 7th and will run until July 28th, 2015. The opening reception will take place Thursday, July 9th, from 6-8 PM. The exhibitions and opening reception are open to the public.
