Transart Advisor, Kim Schoen, Awarded Edith Russ Haus für Medienkunst 2019 Grant

Having explored the topics of nonsense and repetition over the last ten years, Kim Schoen will mark a turning point in her practice with the experimental installation Baragouin (named after a French term for unintelligible jargon). With this work, the artist gives voice to objects, specifically copies of sculptures ranging in origin from Buddhist through rococo and neoclassical to modernist, that she found in a (now closed) commercial showroom in Los Angeles.

Alanna Lockward (March 23, 1961 - January 7, 2019)

Alanna Lockward (March 23, 1961 - January 7, 2019)
Born in the Dominican Republic, Alanna Lockward was an author, curator, filmmaker, mentor, mother, friend, and a person with a heartfelt passion for knowledge and for embarking on endeavors requiring new ways of thinking and interacting with the world. As a curator, she specialized in time-based radical narratives, and was an extraordinary figure in the fields of Caribbean scholarship, decolonial theory, and curatorial praxis, all of which she undertook with the boldness of a true trailblazer. This courage propelled Lockward to embark on unusual projects that, while of extreme relevance to her fields of interest, did not necessary conform to institutional norms and expectations and did not seek immediate validation.
