2018 Core Exhibition

Thursday, April 19, 2018

6-8 PM

On View through Saturday, May 12, 2018

2017-2018 Core Fellows

The 2018 Core Exhibition features work by artists-in-residence Maria Bang Espersen, Shana Hoehn, Devin Kenny, Yue Nakayama, Felipe Steinberg, Elizabeth Webb, and Peng Zuqiang. Core critics-in-residence Kate Green, Ruslana Lichtzier, and Laura A. L. Wellen contribute essays based on their independent research to the publication Core 2018, issued in conjunction with the exhibition.

The Core Program awards residencies to exceptional, highly motivated visual artists and critical writers who have completed their undergraduate or graduate training and are working to develop a sustainable practice. Established in 1982, the Core artist residencies encourage intensive and innovative studio practice; the Core critical studies residencies, added in 1998, provide an opportunity for writers to pursue independent curatorial and writing projects, broadening the scope of the critical dialogue that is central to the practices of all Core residents.
