Julia Chiang Gets "Crafty" at New Museum
"Irascible" artist Julia Chiang will continue her five-day residency at the New Museum store each day this weekend from 2 to 6 p.m., working on A Word (Starting 2013), a group of twenty paintings inspired by hopes for the new year. Chiang is soliciting suggestions for words to turn into paintings: to contribute anonymously, email email@example.com with the subject line "She's Crafty - Julia Chiang." Chiang also asks visitors to "add a layer of 'I Love You' to a drawing I've started." The museum's "She's Crafty" program has invited eleven female artists (including Jennifer Herrema and Maggie Lee) to come work in the storefront window over a two-month span.
