GHP Resident Artist March 1-30, 2018
Greenwich House Pottery is pleased to announce Nicolás Guagnini as our Artist in Residence from March 1–30, 2018. 

Contemporary artist, writer and filmmaker Nicolás Guagnini works across disciplines to engage with concepts of labor, capital and masculinity. His exhibitions frequently mix mediums—ceramic sculptures are paired with books from his personal library, flowers, ink-soaked pedestals, critical writing and unique text design—with every component adding a layer of meaning deeply tied to the project’s philosophical basis. In addition to his individual art practice, Guagnini co-founded the cooperative gallery Orchard in New York’s Lower East Side and the experimental film company Union Gaucha Productions. 

Guagnini was born in Buenos Aries in 1966 and has lived and worked in New York since 1998. Recent solo exhibitions include Union Gaucha Productions, Artists Space (New York); Our Lady of the Flowers, Galerie Max Mayer (Düsseldorf, Germany); Heads, Lars Friedrich Gallery (Berlin, Germany); Nicolás Guagnini: Seven, Miguel Abreu Gallery and Balice Hertling & Lewis (New York). Recent group exhibitions include Sinister Feminism: A.I.R. Gallery’s 12th Biennial Exhibition, curated by Piper Marshall (New York); Bread and Roses, Museum of Modern Art (Warsaw, Poland); Dancing Museum, Museum of Modern Art (São Paulo, Brazil); Descartes’ Daughter, Swiss Institute (New York); ADrawing Show curated by Dan Graham, Micheline Swajcer (Antwerp, Belgium); and Notations: The Cage Effect Today, Hunter College Art Gallery (New York). His writing has appeared in exhibition catalogs at the Whitney (New York) and the Museum of Modern Art (Buenos Aires, Argentina), in the journals October and Artforum and in several other magazines and exhibition catalogs.

Guagnini is planning to use his residency at GHP to work on large-scale ceramics sculpture.

Our residencies foster an artist’s development by providing time, space and material in the center of the art world. The resident has access to a private studio space (20’ x 17’) during the Pottery’s regular business hours, free stocked clay and access to gas and electric firings. Nicolás Guagnini’s residency will run from March 1–30, 2018.

Greenwich House Pottery, a non-profit (501c3) organization, is New York City’s premier ceramic facility. Originally founded in 1909 to teach immigrants a marketable skill in the spirit of the Arts & Crafts Movement, the Pottery is now an arts center for the local and international community that strives to support the history and future of the ceramic arts through its educational facilities, artist residency and gallery.
