PNC Pop-In Artist in Residence
Upfront Gallery & Lobby
May 1 – June 5, 2015
First Friday Gallery Walk: June 5, 6-10pm
Jaimie Warren, That’s What Friends Are For: Self-portrait as Christ/Missy Elliot as collaboration with Cindi Warren and Sally Andersen in a re-creation of Fra Angelico’s Predella for the High Altarpiece of San Domenico, Fiesole, 5-panel photograph
Jaimie Warren’s residency, sponsored by PNC and located in Artspace’s Upfront Gallery, will involve a large-scale, collaborative installation pulling elements of theatre production, photography, and art history together into an exciting interactive experience.
Volunteers are needed throughout the month-long residency to assist Warren in the completion of the project. She is looking for set designers, costume makers and performers of all skill levels and will teach basic skills using simple materials including fabric, paint, cardboard and newspaper. Ages 12-80 are welcome to participate.
Warren will host open studio periods and performance practices several days a week throughout the month of May, and a final rehearsal and shoot at the end of the month.
Jaimie Warren was born in 1980 in Waukesha, Wisconsin and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She is co-creator and co-director of the community-engaged traveling collective Whoop Dee Doo.
Recent solo exhibitions of Warren’s work have been presented at The Hole in New York, San Francisco Camerawork in California, and the Kennedy Museum in Ohio. Warren is the recipient of the 2014 Baum Award for An Emerging American Photographer and is the subject of a 2008 monograph published by Aperture.
Upcoming performances include Whoop Dee Doo at The Abrons Art Center in March and the Museum of Art and Design in April of 2015. Warren was recently selected as a featured artist in ART21’s documentary series “New York Close Up” with her first film to premiere in the summer of 2015.
