Studio Museum in Harlem Announces 2016–17 Artists in Residence

Julia Phillips, Autumn Knight, and Andy Robert have been named the 2016–17 artists in residence at the Studio Museum in Harlem. An interdisciplinary artist, Knight has shown at Project Row Houses, Crystal Bridges Museum, and the New Museum in New York. Her pieces—performance, installation, and text—often address conventions of racial and gender identity.

Phillips uses the body as a means to explore feminist, postcolonial, and psychoanalytical themes. She recently completed the Whitney Museum’s 2016 Independent Study Studio Program as well as a residency at Skowhegan.

Robert mixes sculpture, collage, assemblage, performance, and installation to look at contemporary conditions of existence and communication. A graduate of last year’s Whitney Independent Study Studio Program, he presented at the Bienal de las Fronteras and received a Rema Hort Mann Foundation Grant in 2013.
