"Visa for Thirteen"
2004-04-24 until 2004-06-01
PS1 Contemporary Art Center
Long Island City, NY, USA United States of America

P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center presents Visa for Thirteen, an exhibition of works by the 13 artists in P.S.1s 2003-2004 International Studio Program. The global nature of P.S.1s International Studio Program and its support of diverse interests, creative currents, and counterculture encourage a wide range of artistic perspectives. Visa for Thirteen includes video and sound installations, drawing, sculpture, painting, photography and site-specific installations by artists from 13 countries. These works explore the experience of being a foreigner in New York City and resulting cultural and social transformations. The title directly refers to the process of obtaining a legal travel visa for extended stay in the United States.

P.S.1s International Studio Program, founded in 1976, awards studio spaces to artists from 13 countries each year. The International Studio Program unites professional artists from varied cultural and aesthetic backgrounds. International artists are initially selected by a panel in their sponsoring country, comprised of artists, curators, and writers, and then by a second jury at P.S.1. This program is administered by P.S.1 in cooperation with foreign governments and/or foundations. The 2003-2004 International Studio Program artists are: Sachiko Abe, Japan; Ibon Aranberri, Spain; Tatjana Doll, Berlin; Meschac Gaba, The Netherlands; Stefania Galegati, Italy; Tomo Savi-Gecan, Croatia; San Keller, Switzerland; Oksun Kim, Korea; Ulrike Müller, Austria; Niamh O’Malley; The Republic of Ireland; Jinhua Shi, Taiwan; Caecilia Tripp, France; Michael Van den Abeele, Belgium. Visa for Thirteen is organized by P.S.1 Curator Jimena Blazquez with assistance from P.S.1 Studio Program Coordinator Josh Altman. A catalogue to accompany the exhibition will be available for purchase at P.S.1 in August 2004. This program is made possible from support by A.A.V.C.- Associaciò dArtistes Visuals de Catalunya, Spain, A.F.A.A. - Association Française dAction Artistique, France, Afdeling Beeldende Kunst en Musea, Belgium, Alitalia Airlines, American Austrian Foundation, NY, Ambassade de France aux Etats-Unis, The Arts Council of Ireland/An Chomhairle Ealaion, Asian Cultural Council, NY, Austrian Cultural Institute, NY, Austrian Federal Chancellery, Department for the Arts, Austria, Barbara Burgerhout Benazzo, Berlin Senate, Office for Science, Research and the Arts, Germany, Bulgari, Council for Cultural Affairs, Taiwan, Cultural Services of the French Embassy, NY, The Consulate General of Italy, NY, The Consulate General of the Netherlands, NY, The Consulate General of Switzerland, NY, D.A.P. - Delegation aux Arts Plastiques, France, FACE Croatia, The Federal Office of Culture, Switzerland, Generalitat de Catalunya, Spain, Peter C.
