Maia Chao, Stephen Pace Artist in Residence
with collaborator henry bradley
October 1 – November 26
Hudson D. Walker Gallery
with the support of The Stephen and Palmina Pace Foundation
“I am drawn to working at various in-betweens as an artist: in between the art museum and the public, the art gallery and the artist, the art organization and its contract workers.” – Maia Chao
The Hudson D. Walker Gallery, with the support of the Stephen and Palmina Pace Foundation, is transformed into an 8-week residency workspace for mid-career artists.
We are excited to welcome and host Maia Chao, an interdisciplinary artist, educator, and 2017-2018 Visual Arts Fellow, as our 2023 Stephen Pace Artist in Residence.
During the 8-week Pace Residency, Chao will collaborate with artist henry bradley to develop a public artwork commissioned by the Times Square Alliance for 2024. They will use the Hudson D. Walker Gallery to experiment with formal and conceptual research on crowds, public safety, and theater.
Please coordinate a studio visit at Hudson D. Walker Gallery by emailing Maia Chao at firstname.lastname@example.org.
