NEA 4 in Residence

May 4–June 28. The New Museum hosts a two-month event featuring the artists—Karen Finley, John Fleck, Holly Hughes and Tim Miller—whose funding was famously revoked in 1990 from the National Endowment for the Arts. The project is held in conjunction with the museum's current exhibition, "NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star." One portion of the project serves to place each artist in a residency that features performances, workshops, roundtables and panels. The second segment is called "Performing Beyond Funding Limits: Research in Practice," and features performances and a weeklong residency involving members of the NEA 4 with four contemporary artists (Erin Markey, Salley May, Brigham Mosley and Tobaron Waxman). They will develop business plans to imagine new ways of financial support. Travis Chamberlain curates.
