Material Histories: Artists in Residence 2013-2014

Jul 17, 2014 – Oct 26, 2014

Material Histories is the most recent in a series of exhibitions featuring work of Kevin Beasley (b. 1985), Bethany Collins (b. 1984) and Abigail DeVille (b. 1981), three emerging artists who have been awarded eleven-month residencies at the Studio Museum. This exhibition maintains the Museum’s commitment to highlighting new artistic talent and voices, and features artwork created by the 2013–14 artists in residence since they began their residence in October 2013.

The Artist-in-Residence program is at the core of the Studio Museum’s mission, and gives the institution its name. Since the Museum’s founding in 1968, more than 100 artists in residence have created and shown work in the Museum’s studios and galleries. Among the program’s alumni are some of the most renowned artists working today, including Sanford Biggers, Leonardo Drew, David Hammons, Leslie Hewitt, Kerry James Marshall, Julie Mehretu, Wangechi Mutu, Alison Saar, Mickalene Thomas, Nari Ward and Kehinde Wiley.
