Brooklyn, NY–Pioneer Works is pleased to welcome the 2018 Studio Residency recipients in Music, Technology, and Visual Art, as well as two new partnerships, and the use of our newly renovated studios completed for the Visual Arts Studio Residency.

The 2018 spring session for the Studio Residency will host residents Mary Helena Clark, Louis Fratino, NIC Kay, Autumn Knight, and Gozde Ilkin (in partnership with the SAHA Foundation, Istanbul). The 2018 Fall session will host residents Baseera Khan, Jen Liu, Jaime Warren, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Nicholas Oh (in partnership with the M.F.A program at Rhode Island School of Design). Recent partnerships with the SAHA Foundation, Istanbul and the M.F.A program at Rhode Island School of Design aim to further diversify our residency culture by incorporating emerging artists on the local and international level.

For the 2018 Studio Residency, Pioneer Works launched a nomination program to engage a diverse group of artists, curators, and writers from across the country. The 2018 nominators include Kathryn Kraczon (Curator, ICA Philadelphia), Lia Gangitano (Participant Inc.), David Brooks (artist and Pioneer Works Advisory Board Member), AK Burns (artist and former resident), Ben Degen (artist), Hitomi Iwasaki (Curator, Queens Museum), Anthony Huberman, Director and Chief Curator, CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco), and Wendy Vogel (art critic).  The 2018 guest jurors are Derrick Adams, Carol Bove, and Jes Fan.

The newly renovated Visual Arts Residency studios include five studios dedicated to those awarded a six-month residency by our guest jurors. The sixth studio will function as Pioneer Works’ in-house Production Space. In contrast to the longer six-month residencies, this space will host a flexible and spontaneous rotation of artists working on Pioneer Works productions for 1–3 month periods.

Selected by invitation, the 2018 Music Residents include Zulu P, María Kim Grand, Michael Beharie, and Tatsuya Nakatani. Also selected by invitation, the 2018 Tech Residents include Morehshin Allahyari, Stephanie Dinkins, Sam Sadtler, Martine Syms, and Jessica Wilson. This spring the Production Space will host Gerard & Kelly in advance of their upcoming 2018 exhibition at Pioneer Works.

Founded in 2012, the Pioneer Works Studio Residency provides free studio space for experimental and innovative practitioners in visual art, music, and technology, and is committed to supporting cutting edge contemporary work in all stages of progress from conception to final production. Residencies offer artists a unique, public-facing, and multi-disciplinary program that supports artists and creators from a variety of fields in research, production, and new hybrid forms of practice.

During their residency, residents have access to spacious light-filled studios, a technology lab, music studio, and progressive education and exhibition programs. Residents are also actively engaged in disseminating programs related to their work through our in-house publishing platform and our community and pedagogical engagement department. Access to this unique array of tools, opportunities, and interdisciplinary relationships is offered to deepen and expand each resident’s practice. Current fall 2017 residents include Michael Beharie, Camel Collective, CT: SWaM, Genesis Belanger, Tahir Carl Karmali, Nate Lewis, Kristin Lucas, Matt Romein, Mario Navarro, Carlos Rosales-Silva, and Susie Ibarra. The Production Space will host Shuta Hasunuma in advance of an upcoming exhibition at Pioneer Works made possible with support from Shiseido.
