ArtsLab Shopfront's artists in residence

Meet the makers: My associate artists


I’ve been in dialogue with five artists in preparation for the creative development showing next week as well as looking ahead to the final piece in November. I’m excited by the ideas they have and what they’d each like to explore – so I thought I’d introduce my collaborators! They will each share in different stages of the process with me, the final work, and my showing next week.
