2010/2011 Working Artist Project Winner, Xie Caomin’s Samsāra
The 2010/2011 MOCA GA Working Artists Project (WAP) is an awards program to support established visual artists of merit who reside in the Atlanta metropolitan area. This initiative provides an unparalleled level of support for individual artists, expands the Museum’s mission, and promotes Atlanta as a city where artists can live, work, and thrive. As with past years, jurors selected three visual artists to receive the Award. Representing our city’s best and brightest, these artists will be supported with an exhibition, promotion, a studio assistant, and a major stipend to create work over the course of the year. We are grateful to the Charles Loridans Foundation and The National Endowment for the Arts for funding the 2010/2011 Working Artist Project.
Allison Unruh, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, served as the guest juror for the 2010/2011 awards.
Through August 13. An artist talk takes place on Thursday, May 12 with a reception at 6:30 p.m. and talk beginning at 7.
