NEW HAVEN, CT.- The Yale University Art Gallery
s artist-in-residence program, now in its eighth year, is a research-based residency that brings renowned artists to Yale for up to four weeks, providing them with the opportunity to work with Yale scholars from all disciplines and to avail themselves of the Universitys broad research and technological resources. Each artist in residence makes a public presentation on campus and interacts with undergraduate and graduate students, who are able to explore interdisciplinary connections between the artists work and their own studies. Among the artists hosted at Yale since the programs inception are Janine Antoni, Yun-Fei Ji, Thomas Nozkowski, Alyson Shotz, and Paula Wilson. Carol Bove, Kerry James Marshall, and Richard Rezac are the Gallerys 201011 Happy and Bob Doran Artists in Residence.
Carol Boves exhibitions, publications, and editions investigate the decorative aesthetics and display strategies of past art and décor. Her work has been included in numerous exhibitions, including solo shows at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2010); the Blanton Museum
, Austin, Texas (2006); and the Institute of Contemporary Art
, Boston (2004). Bove gave an Artist Talk in the Gallerys Jan and Frederick Mayer Lobby on Friday, October 28, 2010.
Kerry James Marshalls paintings and works on paper directly engage with the history of race and class, and with the politics of representation in America. In 1997 Marshall was the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship. He has received fellowships from the Studio Museum in Harlem and the National Endowment of the Arts, and he has taught at the School of Art and Design at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Marshalls work is in numerous museum collections, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, Massachusetts; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Marshall will take part in a conversation with Jock Reynolds, the Henry J. Heinz II Director of the Gallery, in the Robert L. McNeil, Jr., Lecture Hall on Thursday, April 14, at 5:30 pm.
Richard Rezacs sculptures provoke questions about overlapping values in architecture, design, sculpture, and painting. These inquiries are measured by the artists commitment to fine craftsmanship and beauty. Rezac has received the Guggenheim Fellowship, the Rome Prize fellowship at the American Academy in Rome, a Joan Mitchell Foundation Award, and two National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artist Fellowships.
