Description

Artists-in-Residence have gone on to perform at venues and festivals including the New Museum, Roulette, PS122, American Realness, Clocktower Gallery, Performa, Vienna’s Donaufestival, Kampnagel in Hamburg, CPR – Center for Performance Research, and the Baryshnikov Arts Center.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Jayoung Chung is a multi-media artist: primarily a visual artist, but also a musician, animator, filmmaker and storyteller. She has had numerous exhibits and installations utilizing nearly every form of media, including performance, film, computer graphics, sound and movement. Her work has been exhibited worldwide in both solo and group shows. Her work is based on the symbiosis of art and technology, using her awareness of the natural world as a gateway to explore “Empathy.” Ocean waves and symbols of passing seasons have emerged as one of her central artistic themes, a metaphor for the circularity of time. In 2013, she was the Moving Image Director at the Special Olympics Winter Games Opening Ceremony.

Active as a composer and performer, Molly Joyce’s music has been described as “impassioned” (The Washington Post), written to “superb effect” (The Wire), and “vibrant, inventive music that communicates straight from the heart” (Prufrock’s Dilemma). Her works have been commissioned and performed by several distinguished ensembles including the New World Symphony, New York Youth Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, and the New Juilliard, Decoda, andContemporaneous ensembles. Additionally, her work has been performed at the Bang on a Can Marathon and VisionIntoArt’s FERUS Festival, and featured in outlets such as Pitchfork, WNYC’s New Sounds, Q2 Music, I Care If You Listen, and The Log Journal.

2018 Inga Maren Otto Fellow, Masako Miki has exhibited her immersive installations and detailed works on paper at sites throughout the Bay Area and Japan. Inspired by Shinto and Buddhist traditions, she attempts through her work to dissolve the boundaries between realms. Miki has been a resident artist at Kamiyama Artists in Residency (Tokushima, Japan), Facebook (Menlo Park, California), and the de Young Museum (San Francisco, California). In 2016, she was a recipient of an Artist Fellowship Award from Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California, and has been selected for the MATRIX Program at Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive for 2019. She is a native of Japan and currently based in Berkeley, California.

Hugh Ryan is a writer, historian, and curator, who is currently writing on a queer history of the Brooklyn waterfront, which will be published by St. Martin’s Press in 2019. He is also developing an accompanying exhibition that will be mounted at the Brooklyn Historical Society. He is the Founding Director of the Pop-Up Museum of Queer History, and his writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The LA Review of Books, Tin House, Out, Vice, Hazlitt, and many other publications.
