TAKEOVER! Artists in Residence and HANDOFF: Weaving in Space

TAKEOVER! Artists in Residence

Curated by Amy Kirwin

HANDOFF: Weaving in Space

Conceived by Christine Sciulli and Bastienne Schmidt

For seven weeks in the winter of 2019 Southampton Arts Center will hand over its galleries to nine East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies.

There will be workshops for all ages, intimate gallery tours, and unique programs inspired by the artists and their works in progress. Additionally, a weekly “hangout” will take place every Thursday from 6-8 PM where community can come and spend the evening with the artists, play ping pong, have a drink, socialize, and watch the creative process at play.

In addition to the “pop-up” studios, the entrance gallery will include Handoff: Weaving in Space. This site-specific project, conceived by Christine Sciulli and Bastienne Schmidt, takes on the tradition of the Exquisite Corpse as a collaborative action drawing-in-space, constructed and manufactured in-situ with ropes, threads and textiles. Referencing the drawing-in-space tradition of Eva Hesse, Sheila Hicks, and Fred Sandback, invited artists will engage their own practice in a ricocheting handoff to create a three-dimensional drawing – weaving and subsuming their contributions during the seven weeks of the exhibition to generate a large-scale spatial installation completed by the show’s closing. This piece invites discussion of conventional notions of authorship to explore the contemporary necessity of collective making.

“Handoff” artists include Louise Eastman, Sabra Moon Elliot, Saskia Friedrich, LoVid, Toni Ross, Bastienne Schmidt, Christine Sciulli, Morgana Tetherow-Keller, Virva Hinnemo and Almond Zigmund.
