Marboe/Johnson, two MFA students at UC Berkeley, are seeking support for a three week artist residency at Elsewhere Collaborative.

Hello!!

As a newly formed collaboration, we are happy to announce that we have landed our first artist residency at Elsewhere Collaborative in Greensboro, NC! Elsewhere, a living museum with a 58-year collection of surplus and thrift, has invited us to create site-specific projects that respond to their collection, community, and concepts.

One of the most interesting things about this residency is that we will not be working on an artwork about/for the space until we arrive and see what catches our eyes. Furthermore, we are unable to take items with us when the residency is over. This is going to be a very site-specific exercise and we're already thinking about how it will alter the way we see the organization of collections we make or observe in spaces such as attics, basements, and studios. What systems are at work and what do they signify? What makes something a thing of the past or a thing of the present? 

Your generous contributions will help us to cover the cost of traveling to/ attending the residency. We greatly appreciate this opportunity to develop artistically and in exchange we'd love to give you site-inspired artworks!!
