International Artist-in-Residence Exhibition

In an unusual turn of events, Artpace recently offered viewers a peek at Fall 2016 International Artist-in-Residence guest curator Denise Markonish’s work via the Tex-centric group show “Objectives” and then invited viewers into residents’ studios for a rare glimpse at their projects in progress. Promising a serious dose of girl power, the MASS MoCA curator’s chapter of the esteemed IAIR program unites artists Lily Cox-Richard (Houston), Kim Faler (Williamstown, Massachusetts) and Kim Morgan (Halifax, Canada). A sculptor who’s created installations with cast resin mushrooms, lightning rods and scrap copper, Cox-Richard is perhaps best known for “The Stand (Possessing Powers),” a project comprised of carved plaster forms inspired by the bases and structural supports of neoclassical statues. Working between sculpture, installation, drawing and photography, Faler creates “facsimiles” of everyday moments, employing plastic, porcelain, clothing, drywall and other materials to explore “the personal through the lens of the familiar.” An installation artist and sculptor who’s worked extensively in public art, Morgan is reportedly “totally obsessed with blood.” Having previously used electron microscopes to scan her own blood to create “self portraits” and intricate arrangements of test tubes, Morgan has continued in this vein during her Artpace residency by building a “breathing, billowing, sighing, monumental collection of blood samples.”
