The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation offers five $5000 grants for projects completed within the grant year 2019. We are interested in supporting bold, compelling, risk taking work in and outside of the standard exhibition venue.
Successful projects value unconventional approaches to art making, critical dialogue, collaboration and new models of community interface. Applications may address a distinct chapter, aspect or component of a larger project.
Support for R.I.P. is provided by the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation.
Border Patrol is pleased to present, Night Guard Recruitment Day, a performance by Prudence Ho on occasion of the closing of the group exhibition, The We. The You. The Us., curated by Baxter Koziol.
Night Guard Recruitment Day is a participatory performance in which guests are invited to step into a day in the life of a museum night guard. Mimicking recruitment events sponsored by The Museum, Ho will lead visitors through a series of tasks related to the exhibition that including hiring, working, and resigning--duties typically assigned to a night security guard. This participatory performance references cult religions and a sense of belonging. It is an exploration of the purposeless purposes and the forced engagement towards hierarchy.
