Some 20 artists from around the world are descending on Beacon on February 28 for a two day residency at Dia:Beacon. The artists who are all enrolled in the TransArt Institute MFA program are being hosted by Beacon residents in their homes.
Folks are invited to join the group at Dia:Beacon on Sunday at 11:30 am to lead blindfolded artists from the museum entrance through the galleries and to the interior of one of Serra's Torqued Ellipses. The artists will spend two days at the museum working on projects that will respond to Dia's exhibits.
After the museum closes on Sunday, the group will convene at Spire Studios for drinks, conversation and a little potluck dinner. If you're interested in stopping in an being part of the conversation, feel free to, and bring a little something to munch on. For more information, contact Angelika .
Angelika is in the final stretch of getting her MFA program through TI. The program consists of an intensive Summer residency in Berlin with a short Winter residency which starts later this week at the Sideshow Gallery in Brooklyn. She's organizing this Beacon extension to the Winter session. Coinciding the Brooklyn residency, TI will be holding its annual open house for anyone interested in learning more about the program.
