Artists in Residence 2019–20

In the second year of a multi-part collaboration, The Studio Museum in Harlem will present its annual Artist-in-Residence exhibition at MoMA PS1. This Longing Vessel will feature new work by the 2019–20 cohort of the Studio Museum’s foundational residency program, artists E. Jane (b. 1990, Bethesda, MD), Naudline Pierre (b. 1989, Leominster, MA), and Elliot Reed (b. 1992, Milwaukee, WI). With practices spanning new media, performance, and painting, this collaborative exhibition enacts a radical intimacy: a “vessel” to hold and be held as we stand within the museum space. In “longing,” the works shown here find the intersection between queerness and blackness as a waypoint: one to yearn from, to reach toward, to leap beyond. This Longing Vessel troubles and excites ways of seeing, seeking new language for the building of extraordinary futures.

Organized by Legacy Russell, Associate Curator, Exhibitions at The Studio Museum in Harlem; with Yelena Keller, Curatorial Assistant, The Studio Museum in Harlem; and Josephine Graf, Curatorial Assistant, MoMA PS1.
