The fourth annual residency program will culminate in the premiere of the artists’ original film commissions on ALL ARTS in spring 2024
NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — ALL ARTS, the multimedia platform covering visual art, music, theater, dance, film, literature and more, will commission new works from three artists as part of the fourth annual Kate W. Cassidy Artist in Residence program. The works produced through the program will premiere on the ALL ARTS broadcast channel, streaming app and other digital platforms in spring 2024 as part of the ongoing ALL ARTS Artist in Residence series.
The 2024 artists in residence include New York-based writer, organizer and educator Mahogany L. Browne, who is executive director of media literacy initiative JustMedia and the inaugural poet-in-residence at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts; Dakota artist Marlena Myles, based in St. Paul, Minn., who uses augmented reality and public art to tell stories that connect people to the history, land, language and culture of the Dakota people; and multidisciplinary artist Kenneth Tam, based in Houston and New York City, whose most recent project honors the role of Asian Americans in settling the American West.
“We are thrilled to spotlight a new cohort of artists through our annual Artist in Residence commission,” said James King, senior artistic director of ALL ARTS. “Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we are able to provide a platform for artists to expand their practice and enrich their creative journey as well as bring fresh perspectives to our audiences.”
This is the fourth season of the Kate W. Cassidy Artist in Residence program, which launched in 2020 with Taylor Mac, MacArthur Fellow and Pulitzer Prize Finalist for Drama, as its inaugural Artist in Residence. The program was expanded under the artistic direction of James King, incorporating institutional partners that included The Shed in 2022 and Here Art Center in 2023.
