Elizabeth Krief & Jacques Manardo Artist Residency Program: Elsa Guillaume

Rodéo ! , 2015-17

Rodéo !, 2015-17

The Elizabeth Krief and Jacques Manardo Artist Residency Program at The Invisible Dog offers artists of all disciplines and nationalities the opportunity to reside in New York City for 1-3 months, without any obligation of a final production and objective, aside from engaging with our city of fantasy, change, excess, power, possibility, hustle, and grandeur.

Everyone finds their own way and the experiments are impossible to anticipate. New York changes all who visit; we’re anxiously waiting to see what resident artists see and discover. Artists will be housed in a furnished apartment in the heart of Brooklyn near The Invisible Dog Art Center and are encouraged to live in total immersion, connect with one of the most vibrant artist communities, meet professionals from the international art world, and participate in events in New York and abroad (Armory Show, Frieze, etc.).

The residency requires applicants to have presented work in their country of origin (USA included) or abroad, but having spent little to no time in New York City.

This 4-year-old program was made possible thanks to the exclusive support of Elizabeth Krief and Jacques Manardo.

We are pleased to announce that the second resident artist will be Elsa Guillaume (France) from September 15 to October 15.

Guillaume is a prolific visual artist, whose travels notebooks are at the beginning of projects once back at the studio. There, drawings, ceramics and installations are elaborated: you can spot glistening fins, odd creatures or exploded spacesuits… The universe that extricates itself from its notebooks, laboratory of forms and ideas, is inspired by stories of exploration.

She recently embarked as a resident artist aboard the scientific expedition schooner TARA Pacific. She has been the winner of several awards, including the COAL Award and the Lacourière-BNF award.

Born in 1989, lives and works in Paris.
