Bose Pacia is pleased to present Transparent Studio. With the gallery no longer practicing commercial activity, we have invited artists to submit proposals for artist studio / residency use of the gallery space for one-month periods beginning in January 2012. By turning the transitional gallery space into temporary artist studios on the ground-level in an active arts neighborhood, we are hoping to allow for an atmosphere of engagement and conversation around the creative process. The selected artist each month will occupy the gallery space to be utilized as an open-forum studio space. We encourage visitors to stop by throughout the week to see the artist in action. Each studio residency term will culminate in an evening with the artist that will coincide with the monthly Dumbo First Thursdays. The program was open to artists of all media practices and all were encouraged to conceive of innovative and experimental project proposals.
January 3 – February 2 Jaret Vadera is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist originally from Toronto, Canada. He received his undergraduate education at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, the Cooper Union in New York, and his MFA from the Yale University School of Art. His work has been exhibited in a number of venues including: the Queens Museum of Art, New York; Thomas Erben, New York; Paved Art + New Media, Canada; The Travancore Palace, New Delhi, India; The Cultural Foundation of Corsica, France; and the New York Arab & South Asian Film Festival, New York. The artist lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
Project Description Jaret will be creating new artworks that will be determined and completed each day during his residency turning the space into an artist / alchemist’s lab, focusing more on the process rather than end result. Each new piece will be comprised of an array of mediums and will also include one-day collaborative projects with artists and non-artists alike. He will also project a new video created every week during the month on the gallery windows. The final installation will be an assemblage of all his creations throughout his residency.
