Pioneer Works, the nonprofit arts center in Red Hook, Brooklyn, has announced its fall 2016 residents in visual arts.

It’s a diverse bunch with some recognizable names, including sculptor and conceptual artist Xu Wang, whose work has been exhibited at the Queens Museum and Sculpture Center; painter Lucia Love, who has a show up at Albertz Benda now; and the collaborative performance-heavy project MSHR.

Here’s the complete list of residents:

  • Onyedika Chuke ( Ontisha, Nigeria / Queens, New York )
  • Doreen Garner ( Philadelphia, Pennsylvania / Brooklyn, New York )
  • Keunmin Lee ( Seoul, Korea )
  • Lucia Love ( Brooklyn, New York )
  • MSHR ( Portland, Oregon / Brooklyn, New York )
  • Fabrice Monteiro ( Benin / Dakar, Senegal )
  • Laura Morrison ( London, England / New York, New York )
  • Helene Nymann ( Copenhagen, Denmark )
  • Curtis “Talwst” Santiago ( Edmonton, Alberta / Brooklyn, New York )
  • Xu Wang ( Dalian, China / New York, New York )

The group will open the doors of their studios to public on Sunday, August 14, as part of Pioneer Works’s bi-monthly Second Sundays program. The full lineup of Second Sundays events, which includes performances, interventions, and exhibition viewings, can be found here.

Since its founding in 2012, Pioneer Works’s residency program has turned out some significant names, including Gerard & Kelly, David Horvitz, and Nina Katchadourian, and has emerged as one of the city’s more promising programs. Spots are now coveted by young artists, which is not surprising, given the resources afforded to its residents: dedicated studio space, an in-house publishing platform, bi-monthly studio visits with critics and curators, and more.
