For our inaugural 2023 Artist Residency, the Beard and Weil Galleries will be transformed into a studio workspace for two visiting artists, Bláithín Haddad and Adjua Gargi Nzinga Greaves. Haddad, who graduated from Wheaton in 2019, is working in printmaking and glass sculpture on ideas around immigration, belonging, and parasites. Greaves’s interdisciplinary practice is guided by metaphysics, network science, ethnobotany, and the granular analytics of poetic inquiry. She will be working with poetry, linguistics, and LEGOS this fall.
The artists in residence will work in the galleries for six weeks, August 30-October 14 with open studio hours and a workshop.
