Fund for Past Fellows and Awardees: Meet the 2022 Recipients
We created the Fund for Past Fellows and Awardees to lend targeted, ongoing support to our outstanding past awardees, who continue to pursue ambitious artistic or art historical projects within their respective fields.
“This project, to be presented at the Queens Museum from October 2022-February 2023, is my first solo museum exhibition. Spread across two galleries, the exhibition includes a site-specific installation as well as a series of new sculptures in glass that explore the ways in which Black motifs of inversion, stall and delay, and enfoldment can tactically resist protocols of white supremacy. Using the complicated spatial and political history of the 1964-65 World’s Fair and Flushing Meadows Corona Park as its backdrop, the exhibition considers the ways in which architecture acts as a spatial and social modifier upon which fantasies of futurity, freedom, and intimacy are realized.” – Charisse Weston

“The ability to perform this project and others live with the help of this grant, would allow us the opportunity to lift up the often overlooked artistic voices within the local Mission district, and introduce more people to the amazing legacy of Mission Muralistas.”
“This award would spark campus- and community-wide conversations about public art and set up applications for larger grants that would support longer- term funding and scholarship of public art in greater College Park.”
“I am currently making work that will be included in my first solo show at Fragment gallery in the Spring. The exhibition will be entitled Earthminer and will include sculptural, drawing, and installation works that I have been making since last year.”
Explore images from Earthminer, which was on view at Fragment Gallery in March 2022.
“My first visit to Suan Mokh in December 2018 was facilitated by the 2018-19 Dedalus Foundation Dissertation Fellowship, as part of, then, an inquiry into histories of abstract art in Thailand and the Philippines … As an independent scholar, I would greatly benefit from this grant from the Dedalus Foundation to be able to complete research and writing for this project.”
“The upcoming show is a reflection of my three-month artist in residency at Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, Germany, that I was awarded in 2019. I am showing new works of a continuing body of work entitled, the Umeyama Time Teleportation Museum (UTTM). UTTM is an imaginary museum that focuses on the historical time-traveler from the Japan of 170 years ago, Shoei Umeyama … I would like to show his (my) works as if the creations are organized as a traveling exhibition and loaned to the Bluestar gallery space.”
