Sadie Barnette, Lauren Halsey, and Eric Mack
Everything, Everyday: Artists in Residence 2014–15
Studio Museum in Harlem
144 West 125th Street, New York, NY 10027
July 16 – October 25, 2015
Now in its last days on view at the Studio Museum in Harlem, Everything, Everyday is this year’s artist-in-residence exhibition. This year’s exhibition features work by Sadie Barnette, Lauren Halsey, and Eric Mack. During the year long residency, Eric Mack created paintings and sculptures, and the in-between; many of Mack’s paintings incorporate textiles, pegboard, packing blankets, and other unusual and sculptural elements. Lauren Halsey presents Kingdom Splurge, an immersive installation incorporating foam, cardboard, resin, LED lights, and more. Sadie Barnette presents a new series of graphite drawings, loosely and suggestively offering the relations of a family through carefully rendered text.
Since 1968, the museum has provided support to more than one hundred emerging artists of African descent through their residency program, with a number of these artists now represented in the museum’s permanent collection. Information about next year’s artists can be found on the museum’s website.
Thursday, October 22, Sadie Barnette appears in conversation with her father Rodney Barnette as part of the museum’s Artist’s Voice series. The event will be streamed live on the Studio Museum website for those unable to attend. The talk begins at 7 pm, with a suggested donation of $7 ($3 for students and seniors). More information about the event can be found on the museum’s website.
