319 2ND FLR Artist in Residence Program, Winter 2021

We are pleased to announce the January, February and March artists in residence on the 2nd floor of the 319 building.

February 17, 2021 – March 31, 2021

Show Catalog

The five artist-run galleries on the 319 Building’s 2nd floor are hosting an open call for artists-in-residence in their spaces, starting January 15, 2021 (AUTOMAT's residencies will begin February 17, 2021). The pandemic has made it difficult to safely present exhibitions in our spaces, and at the same time, many artists have been displaced from their studios due to the pandemic’s economic effects. In a time of isolation, we hope that making these spaces available gives inspiration and opportunity to realize new work, new ideas, and new (virtual) connections.


  • Hsin-Yu Chen: seeing and being seen, the notion of parallax, and the politics and pleasure behind perspective’s construction of a subject | Late February

  • Chris Capriotti: ceremony, sexuality, materiality, myth, and the performative rituals of masculine identity | March

  • THECOLORG: examining visual and physical relationships between art and architecture that exist as a metaphor for connections and bridges between my childhood and adulthood experiences | May

Grizzly Grizzly

  • Jayne Struble: accumulations through graphite drawings, which incorporate video, performance and sculptural elements | mid-Jan - mid-Feb; instagram: @jaynestruble_art

  • Valentina Soto Illanes: interrogating the political and aesthetic compositions of the “natural” and
    “exotic” | mid-Feb - mid-March; Instagram: @valentinasotoillanes

  • Rachel Grobstein: miniature paintings and sculptures which employ a radical scale shift to explore artifacts, collections, memory and biography | late March; instagram: @rachelgrobstein

Marginal Utility

Pink Noise Projects

  • Nicolette Gordon: “Everything is temporary” is a performance piece where designer and artist Nicolette Gordon draws linework in appreciation of the present moment. This meditative practice is a reminder that the present moment is the greatest space to access peace and self power | mid-Jan - mid-Feb

  • Jazmyn Crosby: developing a new series called A Camouflaged Farewell which will consist of a collection of fake rocks with implanted speakers containing “time capsules” which are not visible but articulated by my recorded descriptions of the materials and a series of drawings | mid-Feb - mid-Mar

  • Natalie Hijinx: is assembling a detective’s “crazy wall of evidence (feat. string),” documenting the timeline and suspects from the alternate universe her work inhabits. Are the connections fabrication or conspiracy? | mid-Mar - mid-April


  • Rob Cosgrove: a durational performance contending with current notions of presence and embodiment in virtual and transmitted space | mid-Jan; instagram: @treegaze

  • David McCord Hannon: site responsive stage sets: incorporating video projections, sculpture, and live performance, reimagining childhood, the resurrection of a time that cannot exist again and maybe never existed | February

  • Emmanuela Soria Ruiz: performance, video and sculpture; theatre of objects and landscape dramaturgy | March
