The public is invited to join a conversation on contemporary definitions and challenges relating to the studio with artist/curator Michelle Weinberg. She will be joined by artist and author of Studio Life Sarah Trigg, documentary filmmaker Robert Adanto whose work focuses on individual artists responding to challenges, and artist Onajide Shabaka, who will be activating a gallery space in the Center as a studio and a base for his walking practice.
Michelle Weinberg is a painter who creates art for surfaces, interiors, architecture and public spaces. She received her BFA from School of Visual Arts in NYC and her MFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia.
Sarah Trigg is a photographer, painter, and writer based in New York. Since 2009, she has been documenting The GOLDMINERProject—an anthropological approach to understanding the practices of artists. As an archive to the project, Trigg authored and photographed the book Studio Life: Rituals, Collections, Tools, and Observations on the Artistic Process published by Princeton Architectural Press featuring behind-the-scenes processes and curios of 100 US-based artists including Tauba Auerbach, John Baldessari, Diana Al-Hadid, Rashid Johnson, Simone Leigh, Carol Bove, and Tony Oursler—among many others.
A fellow of the Sundance Institute Documentary Program, Robert Adanto earned his MFA in Acting at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. As a documentarian, he is interested in exploring how artists respond to rapid, sometimes catastrophic change.
Onajide Shabaka is an interdisciplinary cultural practitioner in Miami. His practice connects historical and biographical themes related to ethnobotany and geography that reference African diaspora and Native American cultures.
