The Studio Museum
The Studio Museum has announced its newest artists-in-residence for 2018: Allison Janae Hamilton, Tschabalala Self, and Sable Elyse Smith. Due to the institution’s planned closure next year to be redesigned by Adjaye Associates, the artists will work from studios located in a street-level space at 429 West One-Hundred and Twenty-Seventh Street.
“Our artist-in-residence program has been at the heart of this institution’s mission since our founding in 1968,” director and chief curator Thelma Golden said. “It is the embodiment of our commitment to supporting emerging artists of African descent, and is at the center of our work to bring artists together with the Harlem community. I am thrilled that Allison, Tschabalala, and Sable—three outstanding artists, each of whom has already developed her own distinctive practice—will be with us during our anniversary year, at the beginning of an exciting transition.”
Self’s paintings are on view at the New Museum’s “Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon.” For more information click here
