Congratulations to the Recipients of the 2019 Open Call at OyG Projects. We are honored to work with these two artists and are looking forward to introducing their work to the community on Sept 14th 2019.
Cameron Granger came up in Cleveland, Ohio alongside his mother, Sandra, inheriting both a love of soul music, and a certain way of apologizing too much. A 2017 resident of the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, his work explores his place in, and role as a product of American history and its media. His most recent projects include “Ten Toes Down” at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, “Pearl” a body of collaborative works with his mother at Ctrl+Shft in Oakland, and “A library, for you” a traveling community library.
KT Duffy is a new media artist and educator from Chicago’s southwest side. They received their MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2014 and are currently an Assistant Professor of Art and Technology. Working in the space between labor and automation, Duffy conjures entities into existence via code-based processes and digital fabrication.
They have recently show at the South Bend Museum of Art, (South Bend, IN), Terrault Gallery (Baltimore, MD), Mono8 Gallery (Manilla, Philippines), School 33 Art Center (Baltimore, MD), Arlington Arts Center (Arlington, VA), Satellite Art Show (Art Fair, Miami Art Week), and as PIXELFACE at Comfort Station (Chicago, IL). They have been awarded residencies at The Vermont Studio Center (Johnson, VT), Latitude Chicago (Chicago, IL), ChaNorth (Pine Plains, NY), and Acre (Steuben, WI).
We wanted to give a shout out to these prodigious artists that made our decision way too difficult. Thank you for being a part of the arts community, for being creative thinkers and for making culture. Our world would not be the same without you.
Thank you for sharing your work with us. It is an honor and a privilege to be introduced to your work and we encourage you to continue making and applying to our open calls as well as other opportunities worldwide. This field is for the toughest among us and we acknowledge and applaud you for your bravery and commitment to yourselves and your art making practice.
