Event description

Description

In Process @ The Watermill Center is our ongoing series of open rehearsals, workshops, artist talks and studio visits that invite the community to engage with the work of our international Artists-in-Residence.

The Watermill Center invites audiences of all ages and backgrounds to gain unique insight into the creative process of artists, cultivating an understanding of how artists from across the globe develop new work.

In Process allows direct engagement between the community and our Artists-in-Residence in the midst of their residency, giving them the opportunity to present and receive feedback on their work, and continue the development process throughout the remainder of their stay.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Matthew Craven is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work centers around found imagery combined with hand-drawn geometric patterns. He has shown in galleries all over the world including, New York, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, and Switzerland. His work has been reviewed in notable outlets including The Huffington Post, Art Critical, and The Brooklyn Rail. In 2017, he was the artist-in-residence for the Marfa Myths Festival. Anthology Editions just released PRIMER, the first monograph of MatthewCraven’s work.

Raja Feather Kelly breaks complicated text into three-dimensional movement landscapes. Inspired by Andy Warhol’s philosophy and aesthetic as a model for repetition, iconography, and cinematic sensibilities, Kelly amplifies mundane, pedestrian movement into scientific and virtuosic choreography. His work appropriates the structures, themes, and aesthetics found in reality television, celebrity culture, and social media, then deconstructs them into new works which combine dance, theatre, and visual media. He aims to challenge his audience and collaborators to collectively recognize, interrogate, and celebrate their own implication in popular media: how media has trained and molded their desires, relationships, and identities.

Jeffrey Perkins is a queer poet who was raised on a farm in rural New Hampshire. He earned his BA from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana in Peace and Global Studies and his MA in American Studies from University of Massachusetts Boston. He received his MFA in Poetry from Bennington College where he was the recipient of the Jane Kenyon Memorial Scholarship. His poems have been published in Tupelo Quarterly, The Adroit Journal, Memorious, Rhino, The Cortland Reviewand The Massachusetts Review, among other journals.

2019 Inga Maren Otto Fellow, Lars Daniel Rehn (b. 1974, Sweden) is a visual artist, noted for his humorous and detailed paintings depicting a world from a rather dystopic perspective.
