Artist Talk: Caroline Woolard

February 29, 2020, 2 p.m.

Caroline Woolard, the 2019-20 Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist-in-Residence, presents a talk in the space of her Rose project INDEX: The Meeting.

Woolard employs speculative objects, immersive installation, and online networks to imagine and enact systems of mutual aid and collaboration, exploring what she terms “the pleasures and pains of interdependence.” Her work has been exhibited in solo presentations at Cornell University Gallery, Ithaca; Dekalb Gallery, Pratt Institute, New York; and Moore College of Art and Design, Philadelphia, among others, and commissioned for projects at the Museum of Modern Art; Whitney Museum of American Art; and Brooklyn Museum, New York. She is the recipient of awards, fellowships, and residencies from numerous organizations, including the Pilchuck Glass School (2018), the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (2017), the Queens Museum (2014) and the Rockefeller Cultural Innovation Fund (2013 and 2011). Woolard is an Assistant Professor of Sculpture at the University of Hartford, Connecticut and a mentor at the School of Visual Arts, New York.
