2014 FIAR SUMMER PROGRAM
July 25-August 22, 2014
Cherry Grove, NY
2014 Artist Residents
Sam Ashby (London, UK)
Ginger Brooks Takahashi (Braddock, PA)
Dana DeGiulio (Chicago, IL)
Jonah Groeneboer (New York, NY)
RJ Messineo (Easthampton, MA)
The 2014 residents were selected by this year's distinguished guest jurors:
Bill Arning, Director, The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston
Amy Sillman, artist
Lanka Tattersall, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Painting and Sculpture, The Museum of Modern Art, New York
In addition to our five residents, FIAR is host to many exciting visitors. Leading figures in contemporary art serve as mentors, providing residents with one-on-one studio visits and support. These visiting artists also share their experiences with the community through public lectures and discussions at the Cherry Grove Community House through a special partnership with the Arts Project of Cherry Grove. In this way, FIAR hopes to bring both new creative perspectives and prestigious art professionals together in this extraordinary location to foster the creation — and preservation — of LGBTQ art-making in contemporary art.
