Chelsea Knight was born in Vermont and lives and works in New York. She received her B.A. from Oberlin College and her M.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Knight works in video and performance to consider the inadequacy of language and its relation to the reproduction of power and identity. She recently completed residencies at the New Museum, the Whitney Independent Study Program and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and was a 2007 Fulbright Fellow in Italy. Her work has been exhibited internationally at venues such as The New Museum (New York), The Palais de Tokyo (Paris), The St. Louis Art Museum, Abrons Art Center (New York), and Momenta Art (New York).
The Center for Experimental Lectures is an artist’s project by Gordon Hall that provides a platform for artists, theorists, and other cultural producers to engage with the public lecture as a format. Since 2011 the Center for Experimental Lectures has commissioned 24 new lecture-performances at a variety of venues including Alderman Exhibitions (Chicago), Recess (NYC), MoMA PS1, and at the Whitney Museum of American Art presenting Seminars with Artists in conjunction with the 2014 Whitney Biennial. An archive including video and written transcripts can be found on the archive page of the website atwww.experimentallectures.org.
The Shandaken Project at Storm King
The Shandaken Project supports cultural producers, primarily those who work in an interdisciplinary capacity or affect change in their respective disciplines, with process-focused residencies currently held on the grounds of Storm King Art Center. This unique collaboration is called The Shandaken Project at Storm King. Administrated by the Shandaken Project and taking place on the stunning grounds of Storm King, this program offers residents the best that both organizations can offer. Visual artists, dancers, writers, curators, scholars, and musicians are offered room, board, and studio space for two to six weeks each, three at a time. The residency’s intimate scale encourages dialogue between residents, while the private setting of the studios allows for intense focus on individual practice.
