Jul 07, 2023 12:21 am

The Daily Freeman reports that the Mellon Foundation is giving a $2 million grant to support Tania El Khoury, a commissioned artist and guest co-curator at the Fisher Center, and a Distinguished Artist in Residence at Bard’s Theater & Performance Program. A press release from the local college said, “El Khoury’s live art engages the audience in close encounters with narratives drawn from the political realities of borders, displacement, and state violence.... The grant will support her live art production and touring, her scholarly and artistic research, and her curatorial work at the Fisher Center.” El Khoury said in the press release that, “The grant will allow me to further pursue my artistic and curatorial practices, deepen my experimentation with new models of collaboration and institution-building, and reflect on my trajectory as an artist working at the intersection of politics and research.” Read more about this story in the Daily Freeman.
