For this edition of For Your Reference, Amant Studio & Research residents have invited a group of artists from Hex House, a neighboring artist-run organization and studio space, for an evening of practice-sharing and exchanging in-progress ideas.
Each Amant resident and Hex House artist will share a glimpse into their way of making, interpreting, and sensing. Some artists will present their process of making, including their own artworks. Others will bring a single reference not created by the artist—a film, a book, a person, an architectural object, a plant, a word, an art project—that informs the artist’s current interests and methods of working.
The first part of the evening consists of sharing individual references, then we will pause for a walk to Hex House to conclude with a collective celebration with food, drinks, and music.
Participating artists include:
Amant artists-in-residence: Kriss Li, Shamica Ruddock, Sara Saleh, and Emilija Škarnulytė; and Hex House artists: Cody lrvens Israel, Philip Errico, Char Stiles, Melanie Hoff.
