    The Joan Mitchell Foundation announced the inaugural recipients of its new Joan Mitchell Fellowship, which annually awards 15 artists working in the evolving fields of painting and sculpture with $60,000 each in unrestricted funds, distributed over a five-year period. Announced in February 2021, the Foundation’s new Fellowship program re-envisions and enhances the impact of its earlier Painters & Sculptors Grants by significantly increasing the financial award and expanding the professional development offerings that are a hallmark of the Foundation’s approach to supporting working artists. The 15 artists receiving Fellowships range in age from 35 to 71; 80% are artists of color—and 40% identify as Hispanic, Latinx, or Chicanx—while 47% identify as female and 13% as gender non-conforming. The artists were selected in a multi-phase, juried process from 166 applicants who were identified by a diverse pool of nominators from across the country and who reflect a wide range of backgrounds in the arts. The 2021 Joan Mitchell Fellows are: María Berrío, Brooklyn, NY Margaret Curtis, Tryon, NC Adam de Boer, Los Angeles, CA Raúl de Nieves, Brooklyn, NY Justin Favela, Las Vegas, NV Chie Fueki, Beacon, NY Emily Gherard, Seattle, WA Angela Hennessy, Oakland, CA Mie Kongo, Evanston, IL Guadalupe Maravilla, Brooklyn, NY Kambui Olujimi, Queens, NY Ronny Quevedo, Bronx, NY Rose B. Simpson, Santa Clara Pueblo, NM Liza Sylvestre, Champaign, IL Luis Tapia, Santa Fe, NM The selection of the 2021 Joan Mitchell Fellows was initiated by 88 nominators, 44% of whom are themselves artists, and nearly a quarter of whom were participating in the process for the first time. The nominators reflect broad geographic diversity—representing 47 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico—as well ethnic, gender, and age diversity, and they work as curators, educators, and arts administrators, in addition to those who identify as artists. They identified the 166 artists who were then invited to apply for Fellowships. A group of five jurors subsequently evaluated the submissions with an eye to artistic achievement, the relationship between the artists’ stated goals and their work, and the financial impact of the award, to arrive at a final group of 15 awardees. The Joan Mitchell Fellowship maintains the Foundation’s longstanding commitment to recognize and support US-based artists working in the fields of painting and sculpture, whose work has contributed to important artistic and cultural discourse and is deserving of greater recognition on a national level. The emphasis on painters and sculptors is in accordance with artist Joan Mitchell’s specified focus for the Foundation’s support and also recognizes studio-based and process-driven creative practices that may not align well with prevailing models of annual, project-based visual arts support. About the Joan Mitchell Foundation The Joan Mitchell Foundation cultivates the study and appreciation of artist Joan Mitchell’s life and work, while fulfilling her wish to provide resources and opportunities for visual artists. As the chief steward of Joan Mitchell’s legacy, the Foundation manages a collection of Mitchell’s artwork and archives containing her personal papers, photographs, sketchbooks, and other historical materials. Fulfilling Mitchell’s mandate to “aid and assist” living artists, over the past 28 years the Foundation has evolved a range of initiatives that have directly supported more than 1,000 visual artists at varying stages of their careers. The Joan Mitchell Fellowship gives annual unrestricted awards of $60,000 directly to artists, with funds distributed over a five-year period alongside dedicated and flexible professional development. The New Orleans-based Joan Mitchell Center traditionally hosts residencies for national and local artists, as well as artist talks, open studio events, and other public programs that encourage dialogue and exchange with the local community; due to COVID-19, the program is focused on local artists for 2021. The Creating a Living Legacy (CALL) initiative provides free and essential resources to help artists of all ages organize, document, and manage their artworks and careers. Together, these programs actively engage with working artists as they develop and expand their practices. For more information, visit joanmitchellfoundation.org.

    Imagining Otherwise: Speculation in the Americas was recently chosen by the selection committee for funding through the HRI Mellon-funded Interseminars Initiative, which supports innovative interdisciplinary graduate education in the arts and humanities. This award provides the opportunity to help design and participate in an Interseminars methods seminar in Fall 2022, to design and co-teach an Interseminars theme-based course in Spring 2023, to organize and run summer intensive workshops in 2022 and 2023, and to host a culminating event (such as an exhibition, performance, conference, or other community- or public-facing activity) in Fall 2023. “The course introduces speculation as a method and as a practice for social transformation. How have artists, writers, activists, and scholars throughout the Americas used speculation as a means of troubling the world as it is and imagining it otherwise? How does speculation provide us a method for critiquing the world that is and helping to bring into being another, more just world? This course considers how speculation has been used in tandem with social movements, focusing on three main areas: racial justice, immigration, and environmentalism. Through these main lenses, we will explore how speculation operates across different experiential scales (body, territory, nation) as well as temporal registers (projecting to the far future but also capable of imagining alternate pasts) in order to problematize the delimited and totalizing imaginary of colonial-capitalism and white supremacy, and to bring into being new ways of being and relating. Course materials and activities will prioritize Black, brown, Indigenous thinkers from throughout the Americas, in order to foreground how speculation has been engaged by anti-racist projects of decolonization. Student work will adopt different speculative modalities, including community based, experiential, scholarly, and creative components. In the spirit of imagining other forms of pedagogy and radical study, students will play an integral role in developing the course syllabus, objectives, and documentation.”

    “Foreward" Crooked Tree Arts Center, 322 Sixth Street, Traverse City, MI September 27 - November 13 Reception: Thursday, September 30, 5:30-7 p.m. Foreward centers a Black family's intergenerational acts of survival, rebellion, and hope. These experiences are too often buried behind leading news stories not typically curated by, or considerate of, Black people's needs and knowledge. “Men of Change: Power. Triumph. Truth" The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, 315 E Warren Ave, Detroit, Michigan October 9, 2021 - January 2, 2022 This ten-city national touring exhibition tells a narrative of America through the profiles of 25 African-American men who are icons in the country’s historical and cultural landscape, including: Muhammad Ali, James Baldwin, Ta-Nehisi Coates, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Kendrick Lamar. I contributed a commissioned portrait of Romare Bearden (1911-1988): a visual artist, activist, and author known for his oil paintings and collages focused on black community, identity, and narrative. “I Am...Legend.” Freeport Art Museum, 121 North Harlem Avenue, Freeport, Illinois October 23, 2021 - February 12, 2022 Reception: Saturday, October 23 I Am... Legend is a collection of drawings that study and acknowledge centuries of racialized angst and terrorism, visualizes how far both powerful and marginalized people go to alleviate fear, and considers the legacies of survival. I am informed by the television program Soul Train and widely distributed 19th- and early 20th-century lynching photographs. This collection taps into the fear of the Other through an ethno-Gothic lens to question the lynch mob’s self-heroization, disrupt a nostalgic gaze upon Soul Train and historic vigilantism, and propose that our personal connection to collective experience allows fresh space for empathy and action.
