Studio Museum in Harlem Names 2019–20 Artists-in-Residence

The Studio Museum in Harlem announced today that E. Jane, Naudline Pierre, and Elliot Reed have been invited to participate in its artist-in-residence program, which has advanced the careers of over two generations of black and Latinx artists. The artists were selected from a group of more than three hundred applicants and will receive institutional and material support from October 2019 to September 2020.

“Part of the magic of the Artist-in-Residence program is the way it changes with the times and keeps the Studio Museum as a key innovator across creative practice,” Legacy Russell, an associate curator at the museum, said in a statement. “In form, subject matter, and concept, the diverse practices of our three artists in residence for 2019–20 are all on the cutting edge, expanding the canon and showing us what’s possible in art today and even giving us a glimpse of what art might be tomorrow.”

The artists will have access to studio space at Studio Museum 127, a temporary location occupied by the Studio Museum, as construction on its new building is underway. The work they produce will be presented at MoMA PS1 in the summer of 2020 as part of a multiyear partnership between the Studio Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and MoMA PS1.
