2013 Summer Open Studio Awardees
Artadia is happy to announce its Summer Open Studios program. In an effort to utilize New York City for its wealth as a global transit hub in the constant exchange of ideas, as well as a place to meet other artists, curators and critics, Artadia will open its DUMBO exhibition space to three Awardees to exhibit their work for one month each. Summer Open Studios aims to open conversations via an in-progress approach to art-making that includes the dialogue that assists in the formation of each new work.

She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally at institutions such as PS1-MOMA in New York, the Drawing Center in New York, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and the Neues Kunstforum in Cologne.
