The public is invited into the Windgate ITE Residents’ shop for discussion surrounding their work as part of the 2019 Windgate ITE International Residency Program. This event will take place at University of the Arts (UArts) located at 333 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107, on Saturday, July 13, 2019, from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm. This event is an opportunity to meet the resident fellows and hear about their concepts and works in progress, whether in wood, film, writing or other documentation.
This summer marks the 24th year that the Center has sponsored the international residency program. The Resident Fellows live, travel, and work independently and collaboratively in an intensive, 8-week program from June 10 through August 2, 2019. Typical activities include visits to local and regional museums and public and private collections of art. The residency culminates in an exhibition of their artwork, allTURNatives: Form + Spirit 2019, opening Friday, August 2nd. The evening will begin with a gallery talk by the Resident Fellows followed by a reception. Sponsored and programmed by The Center for Art in Wood, and hosted by our partners, UArts, and NextFab, the residency encourages research, discussions, studio work, experiments, and collaborations.
