Brian Fleetwood
Place/Holding

A Mobile artist Residency Program from Axle and Georgia O'Keeffe Museum's ART TO G.O.

 

Axle Contemporary and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum are pleased to announce the Mobile Artist in Residency Program, a new collaboration beginning November 2023, and running through the Spring of 2024.

Brian Fleetwood (Muskogee) has been tapped as the first Mobile Artist in Residence of the program, with a focus on community identity, jewelry-making, and plastics. 

Fleetwood’s project, titled Place/Holding, will culminate with an exhibition hosted by Axle in the spring of 2024 after traveling through Northern New Mexico in the fall and winter of 2023. During this travel, Fleetwood will engage communities in Pojoaque Pueblo, Abiquiú, and at New Mexico School for the Arts and the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA), in Santa Fe, to encourage the exchange of recyclable single-use plastics that will later be turned into wearable art. At each stop, Fleetwood will convene meetings to collaboratively design castable jewelry pieces that speak to the identity of each group.

The Abstract Random Photo Booth is an immersive painting created by the exuberant expressionist artist Jonathan Hertzel. Hertzel has worked with a variety of mediums including monumental bronze sculpture, painting, clay, paper, and ink. Currently, he will feature his new large-scale paintings with visual accessories that allow the audience to become participants in the artwork. Two new paintings will be debuted on Memorial Day weekend with Axle Contemporary. The interior of the “Photo Booth” will be wrapped with a 6-foot by 18-foot painting titled "A Day at the Beach" while the exterior will have an 8-foot by 18-foot painting titled "The Next Wave" mounted on it. The public is welcome to model parts of the painting in the form of painted coats, hats, and shirts. Photograph unique portraits as the artwork comes alive when you step through the frame in the Abstract Random Photo Booth!
