Lile Stephens
July 29 – September 4, 2015

Lile Stephens’ residency, presented by PNC and located in Artspace’s Upfront Gallery, will explore our cultural and personal relationship to flight. Stephens explains, “Human flight is one of the most ‘unnatural’ yet ubiquitous uses of technology.” He is interested in grappling with the anxiety and fear we associate with commercial flight, drone flight and mythological flight. During his residency, Stephens will conduct a workshop where students will learn how to pilot small aircraft in addition to building a quadcopter drone from the ground up.

Jamie Warren

Jaimie Warren’s residency, sponsored by PNC and located in Artspace’s Upfront Gallery, will involve a large-scale, collaborative installation pulling elements of theatre production, photography, and art history together into an exciting interactive experience.

She is looking for set designers, costume makers and performers of all skill levels and will teach basic skills using simple materials including fabric, paint, cardboard and newspaper.

Warren will host open studio periods and performance practices several days a week throughout the month of May, and a final rehearsal and shoot at the end of the month.

Jaimie Warren was born in 1980 in Waukesha, Wisconsin and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She is co-creator and co-director of the community-engaged traveling collective Whoop Dee Doo.

Recent solo exhibitions of Warren’s work have been presented at The Hole in New York, San Francisco Camerawork in California, and the Kennedy Museum in Ohio.
