In a hyper-mediated and connected world, former VisArts Bresler Resident Artist Corwin Levi longs for experiences and places where he feels lost. Relying on his own wits and senses allows him access to a heightened, expanded awareness that fades when the GPS system is activated. In his solo exhibition of paintings, void drawings, video and void photographs, Levi concentrates on waves and the stars. He builds a metaphorical relationship between these vast unknowable spaces and the possibilities in the outer physical world and within individual personal experience.
About the Artist: Corwin Levi is a mixed media, project-based artist who whose practice centers around transforming ideas into experiences. He has shown across the country and been awarded fellowships and artist residencies both here and internationally.
Levi also enjoys including participants in his work, and has collaborated with other artists, the general public, and students of all ages, including a special high school class whose sole project was to create an installation for a museum. He has also curated shows and related materials, most recently working with artists such as Kiki Smith, Carrie Mae Weems, DJ Spooky, Amy Cutler, and others to publish a new collection of Grimms’ fairy tales.
About the Fleur and Charles Bresler Residency: In honor of VisArts patrons, Fleur and Charles Bresler, VisArts invites applications and proposals from local, national, and international artists for a four month residency at VisArts at Rockville. This residency provides a unique opportunity for a dynamic individual artist or collaborative artist team to create a new body of work, evolve an existing body of work, or develop a project in a stimulating, supportive environment. Studio space is provided free of charge. The residency encourages interaction, dialogue and exploration both within the VisArts artist community and the larger Rockville community as well. The residency offers the gift of time and space to three artists and/or collaborative artist teams each year to experiment and realize new work. The current Bresler Resident Artists present their work in a solo exhibition at VisArts.
