The Marwen Lab 2020-21 Exhibition showcases independently-driven projects created at home by twenty Lab Residents this past year alongside three Lab alumni teaching artists. The Lab Residency is a year-long immersive program designed to support young artists in the development of their arts practice and to foster a community of support among emerging young artists.
Visitors can register to view the exhibition in person by signing up here. Gallery hours and capacity are limited in accordance with CDC safety guidelines. Masks and social distancing are required inside Marwen’s building. Gallery hours: Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, 10 am - 5 pm (1 hour viewing)
Working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lab Residents came together over the past year. They found a community of artists among their peers and met weekly online with each other and with five teaching artists (three of whom are Marwen Lab alumni).
Throughout the school year, Residents forged friendships, developed their studio practices, inspired each other, and found new ways of expressing their ideas through their artwork. They encouraged each other to make art despite the challenges of working in isolation, and created moments of joy, reflection, and self-care. While this exhibition is the culmination of the year’s work, it also marks the beginning of the Residents’ next steps as artists.
