Phoenix Institute of Contempor ary Art (phICA) inaugurates its fourth exhibition project Residual Bene fits: Artists Employing Residencies in Professional Practice at Modifi ed Arts\, Phoenix\, in conjunction with the Phoenix presentation of Sue Che noweth: Real and Applied which was shown at Largo das Artes Gallery in Rio de Janeiro (August 4 – September 22\, 2012). The exhibition is being curate d for phICA by Ted G. Decker with Vicki L. Stouffer.

\n

Residual Benefits: Artists Employing Residencies in Profess ional Practice includes a small\, but impactful and richly diverse selectio n of works by professional visual artists who have attended artist residenc ies. Artist residencies emphasize community dynamic\, mutual respect\, coop eration\, and understanding. These environments offer an artist the luxury of time to make new work\, to conceptualize and experiment with new ideas\, to be immersed in a culture or place other than where the artist is based\ , and to be a contributing member of a diverse\, creative community of arti sts\, often resulting in new trajectories in art making practice.

\n

Artists in the exhibition reside in Phoenix\, Los Angeles\, Brazil\, Cuba\, and Portugal. They have attended artist resid encies in their own countries as well as in some international locations. P articipating artists include:

\n

Wanders on Alves (São Paulo\, Brazil)
Melinda Bergman (Phoenix)

Carolyn Lavender (Phoenix)
Miguel Palma (Lisbon\, Portugal)
Fábia Schnoor (Rio de Janeiro\, Brazil)
Karolina Sussland (Phoenix) José Angel Toirac (Havana\, Cuba)

\n

Accompanying educational programming focuses on the value of including ar tist residencies as a strategy in artists’ professional careers. It will fe ature one panel discussion on Saturday\, December 1st\, 2012 at Modified Ar ts with Sue Chenoweth and a selection of artists from the community who hav e attended artist residencies to discuss this topic. There will be a mix of artists on the panel who are represented with work in the exhibit as well as some who are not.
