The Joan Mitchell Foundation announced today the 35 artists selected for its 2021 Artist-in-Residence program at the Joan Mitchell Center in New Orleans. The artists, all of whom are based in New Orleans, and two of whom work as a collective, were chosen from among more than 150 applicants by a jury of artists and arts professionals from New Orleans and across the country. Residents were chosen with an eye toward: an expressed need for dedicated studio space to further develop their practices; the potential career impact of a residency; a demonstrated commitment to studio practice; and the presentation of a cohesive body of work that speaks to creative vision and innovation. Additionally, two artists selected for the program in 2020 will complete their residencies as part of this year’s class, bringing the total number of participants to 37. The group represents a wide range of professional backgrounds, demographics, career stages, and artistic media and approaches.
