New Museum Presents 'NEA 4 in Residence' in May and June

The New Museum will present two major projects from May-June 2013, featuring the famously defunded artists known as the NEA 4: Karen Finley, John Fleck, Holly Hughes, and Tim Miller. The first of these projects, "NEA 4 in Residence," engages these artists in a series of four individualized residencies, featuring performances, workshops, roundtables, and panels. This project is presented in conjunction with the New Museum's current exhibition "NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star."

The second project, "Performing Beyond Funding Limits: Research in Practice," includes performances and a weeklong research residency whereby the NEA 4 will guide four under-supported New York-based artists to develop radical "business plans" for better sustaining their own practices and to imagine new strategies beyond the limits of available funding. This project was conceived as a response to the central theme of IDEAS CITY 2013: Untapped Capital. Utilizing collaborative research and team mentorship strategies, "Performing Beyond Funding Limits" enacts a model for a group of under-supported solo performers to leverage their collective Untapped Capital.

"NEA 4 in Residence + Performing Beyond Funding Limits" is curated by Travis Chamberlain, Associate Curator of Performance and Manager of Public Programs at the New Museum. Read a related blog post by Chamberlain on the NEA 4.
