Join leading artist Julianne Swartz for the opening of her new, collaborative, site-responsive installation in the River building at Grace Farms.

As part of the Practicing series, Grace Farms Foundation’s Arts Initiative is bringing together a curated cohort of collaborators, including poets, sculptors, essayists, scholars, theologians, composers, musicians, choreographers, dancers, and humorists, for intensive workshops investigating the subject of Joy. The temporary project comprises conceptually related, but spatially distinct sound artworks on exhibit from September 2018 to March 2019. These interconnected works will synthesize the Practicing Joy exploration, offering a multi-sensory response to a diverse range of contributors including poets Ross Gay, Nicole Sealey, and Christian Wiman. The opening reception will begin at 3 pm with a talk from artist Julianne Swartz, followed by a reception at 4 pm.

Julianne Swartz lives and works in Stone Ridge, New York. Her work synthesizes light, air, and sound into ephemeral and participatory experiences. Recent projects include a sun harnessing permanent installation for the Art Gallery of Western Australia in Perth, Australia, and a 20-channel sound-scape in a footbridge, for MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts. Other exhibition venues include: Museum of Arts and Design in New York City, New York; Indianapolis Museum of Art in Indianapolis, Indiana; High Line in New York City, New York; Israel Museum in Jerusalem, Israel; Tate in Liverpool, United Kingdom; Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, New York; New Museum in New York City, New York; and The Jewish Museum, in New York City, New York. Swartz was a recipient of the Anonymous Was a Woman Award in 2015. She is on the faculty at Bard College in Annandale on Hudson, New York, and serves on the Board of Governors for the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture in Skowhegan, Maine.
