Artist in Residence Spotlight: Cullen Washington, Jr.
Things in Themselves presents the work of Steffani Jemison, Jennifer Packer and Cullen Washington Jr., the 2012–13 artists in residence at The Studio Museum in Harlem. Whether exploring fragile and delicate materials, developing a deeper understanding of painting or intuitively networking found materials and objects, the artists share a deep investment in the processes and techniques of making art.
Cullen Washington, Jr. incorporates assemblage and collage techniques to create large-scale abstract paintings on canvas. Washington’s works are often made of grids and particular patterns and rhythms that might not be apparent to viewers at first glance. But these systems and processes are linked to the core of Washington’s practice, and create an internal system in each piece and subtle connections between groups of works.
On Thursday, July 18, join the Studio Museum for a night with 2012-13 artists-in-residence Steffani Jemison, Jennifer Packer, and Cullen Washington, Jr. in conversation with curator Lauren Haynes.
