The ArtTable FL Chapter announces the next installment of The Breakfast Club generously hosted by the renowned Fountainhead Residency. The artist residency was founded by collectors Dan and Kathryn Mikesell in early 2008, to introduce visiting artists to Miami’s art community and it’s many supporters, and to infuse Miami with artistic inspiration from around the world. At The Fountainhead Residency artists have the opportunity to become truly integrated into Miami’s vibrant, close-knit, and very supportive art community, and are given an opportunity to meet and receive feedback from respected curators, collectors, gallerists and other artists.
We are very pleased present an exciting conversation led by Kathryn Mikesell with the residency’s two current artists:
Frances Goodman: The artist’s work draws attention to popular culture definitions that narrow the possibilities of female identity to extremes of consumption, aspiration, obsession, desire and anxiety.
Born in 1975 in Johannesburg South Africa, she studied Fine Arts at Wits University, Johannesburg. On completion of an MA at Goldsmiths College, London, UK, she began her career in Antwerp, Belgium. She has participated in major international exhibitions such as The Divine Comedy: Heaven, Hell, Purgatory revisited by Contemporary African Artists commencing at MMK Frankfurt and travelling to the Smithsonian and SCAD, Savannah, Lust and Vice: From Durer to Nauman at the Kunstmuseum Bern, Spheres, at Le Moulin, France and Beauty and Pleasure, The Stenersen Museum, Oslo, Norway. Her work has been shown at the Armory, ArtBasel and ArtBasel Miami. For more on Frances Goodman please visit: http://www.francesgoodman.com/
Trish Tillman: Tillman’s work pulls together a myriad of foreign objects and materials in order to construct private memorials, characters, and monuments to domestic and social rituals and cultural idiosyncrasy.
