Artist: Jordan Casteel
Sargent's Daughters is pleased to announce that Jordan Casteel has been selected as an artist in residence at the Studio Museum in Harlem.
Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator of the Studio Museum, marked the next cycle in this vital program by announcing that Jordan Casteel, EJ Hill and Jibade-Khalil Huffman have been selected as the Museum’s artists in residence for 2015–16 and will begin their eleven-month tenure in October.
Each will receive free use of a studio space on the Museum’s third floor, a $20,000 fellowship grant and a stipend of $1,000 for materials. At the end of the residency, the Museum will present an exhibition of the artists’ work. “This is the program that put the ‘Studio’ in our museum’s name,” Thelma Golden said. “It is fundamental to all aspects of our mission of being a home to outstanding artists of African descent—helping us forge connections between artists and the community, and keeping us at the forefront of contemporary artistic practice. I congratulate our wonderful current artists in residence on an exhibition that speaks eloquently of their distinctive visions and look forward to welcoming our new artists when they begin their year with us in October.”
