About this Event

Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning (JCAL) is extremely pleased to present the Where-in: 2019 ARTWorks, Inc Two Fellow Artist-in-Residence Show of Ifeatuanya (Ify) Chiejina and Julian Louis Phillips. The two fellow artists have participated in the FY19 ARTWorks, Inc., a professional development artist residency & seminar series. The exhibition culminates their creative endeavors and celebrates the work that they have created during their artist-in-residence at JCAL.

Ifeatuanya (Ify) Chiejina is a process-based visual artist born and raised in Queens, NY. As a Nigerian-American, she considers the tensions and complexities that come with being brought up in an African household in a western society. Chiejina completed her B.A in philosophy from Queens College. She is also one of the founding members for the Southeast Queens Artist Alliance (SEQAA). Chiejina creates a series of figurative paintings to show painting as a laborious endeavor of building communal relationships with others in trust and love.

Julian Louis Phillips is a New York-based performance artist and sculptor. He received his MFA from Social Practice Queens at Queens College and has exhibited his work throughout the North East. In his work, he critically explores the relationship between the social and structures of injustice. He has been a fellow artist at More Art and a resident artist at NARS Foundation. Currently, he is making new performance and video work that explores our relationship with popular mobile-based media.
