2013 Bellagio Creative Arts Fellows

 

The Rockefeller Foundation is pleased to announce the 2013 Bellagio Creative Arts Fellows: Gauri Gill, Chen Shaoxiong, and Ala Younis.

The Bellagio Creative Arts Fellows is a high profile program, recognizing visual artists whose work is inspired by global or social issues and demonstrates exceptional originality. The Fellows receive a cash award and undertake a residency of two months at the Center. They also benefit from interactions with the Bellagio Center’s stimulating community of scholars, writers, policymakers, and other artists who share dinners and occasional presentations. The combination of an extended stay, a generous stipend, private work space, and a unique group of fellow residents makes a Creative Arts Fellowship at the Bellagio Center a remarkable opportunity.

Gauri Gill is one of India’s most significant photographers. She studied in India and the United States, receiving BFAs at the Delhi College of Art and at the Parsons School of Design as well as an MFA at Stanford University.  She has exhibited her work widely, primarily in New Delhi and London. Gill’s practice includes a decade long study of marginalized communities in Rajasthan as well as of women from different generations and their often tentative encounter with modernity. Gill will use her time at Bellagio to develop the second in a series of books she is developing from her photographic series entitled “Notes from the Desert.”

Chen Shaoxiong, who lives and works in Beijing, has been a very important conceptual artist in China since the early 1990s. He works both independently and collaboratively as a member of an artist collective called Project without Space as well as another artist collective called Xijingren.  Chen’s work has been displayed in shows, biennales and permanent collections around the world.  While at the Bellagio Center, Chen will develop one of three projects that combine his interest in contemporary art forms, social movements and collective action.

Ala Younis is an artist and curator based in Amman. Born in Kuwait, Younis studied architecture at the University of Jordan in 1997, and in the early 2000s, she began her career as an artist. Through her practice, Younis explores her position as an Arab woman artist and as a Palestinian. Her work combines art and research-based sociopolitical investigations, using photographs, objects, film, and publication projects to create a distinctive visual language. Younis will use her residency to advance a project called “Plan for Greater Baghdad” which explores the tradition and influence or urban utopian concepts in the Middle East.
