ALL ARTS Continues Acclaimed Artist in Residence Program with Six Artists Announced in New Collaboration with HERE

NEW YORK, June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Artistic duo Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya; creative partners Kameron Neal and Paul Pinto; and solo artists Diana Oh and James Whiteside chosen for third annual arts commissioning program

ALL ARTS, the multimedia platform covering visual art, music, theater, dance, film, literature, and more, will commission new work from six artists as part of its 2023 ALL ARTS Artist in Residence program in a new collaboration with HERE. The work produced through the residency program will air on the ALL ARTS broadcast channel, streaming app and other digital platforms in Spring 2023.

The 2023 ALL ARTS Artists in Residence include artistic duo Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya who will create a film examining society’s post-industrial relationship to food as a companion piece to their immersive live performance “A Meal,” which is in development at HERE; multidisciplinary artists Paul Pinto and Kameron Neal who will build on their series of immersive music video cantatas interrogating “whiteness,” first presented digitally in HERE’s PROTOTYPE Festival in January 2021 and by La Mama and CultureHub in February 2022; artist Diana Oh who is known for their genre-defying work, which celebrates queer, trans and non-binary people; and American Ballet Theatre principal dancer and choreographer James Whiteside who doubles as an online pop music performer under the stage name JbDubs.

“We are delighted to collaborate closely with HERE to support this diverse group of artists and introduce their work to a wider audience,” said James King, Artistic Director of ALL ARTS. “These artists are pushing the boundaries of their respective discipline and reshaping the contemporary art landscape.”

“As a launching pad for genre-blending artists, HERE is delighted to partner with ALL ARTS to foster the cutting-edge work of these artists and build on our commitment to expand the digital reach of our programming,” said Kristin Marting, Founding Artistic Director of HERE.

This is the third season of the ALL ARTS Artist in Residence program, which was expanded in 2021 through a partnership with The Shed. The program launched in 2020 with Taylor Mac, MacArthur Fellow and Pulitzer Prize Finalist for Drama, as its inaugural Artist in Residence.

Past seasons of ALL ARTS Artist in Residence are available to stream nationwide on the free ALL ARTS app and AllArts.org/ArtistInResidence and include Matthew Whitaker: About Tomorrow, an autobiographical film from jazz pianist Matthew Whitaker; The Roll Call: The Roots to Strange Fruit, a sonic opera from Obie Award winner Jonathan McCrory; There is no movement without rhythm, an exploration of bodily and spiritual liberation in the music of the African Diaspora by multimedia artist Le’Andra LeSeur; Volvo Truck and the Girls From Up the Hill, an impressionistic performance film from DonChristian Jones; and Taylor Mac’s Whitman in the Woods., a drag performance film exploring Walt Whitman’s poetry.
