Assistant Professor Catie Newell has been named a Lucas Fellow at the Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, California and will be in residency during the month of November, 2016.
As described by the Montalvo Art Center:
The Sally and Don Lucas Artists Residency Program (LAP) is designed to offer artists from a range of disciplines an environment conducive to individual and collaborative creative practice. Seeking to stimulate an energetic exchange of ideas between culturally diverse Fellows and across varied artistic fields and scholarly disciplines, the residency has earned international recognition as a model of curatorial practice supporting the development of new and challenging contemporary work.
Lucas Fellows are identified through an international nomination process that ensures support for highly qualified artists who have the potential to become major voices in the next generation of creative thinkers. Residencies are offered in all contemporary artistic disciplines including the visual arts, design, literary arts, film, choreography, performance art, music and composition, and teaching artists. The LAP welcomes artists' collaborators from overlapping fields.
While in residency, Newell is focusing on optical and material research as it relates to architectural spaces after the fall of night.
