This institution maintains a culture which I have envied for years—a program with international reach that remains extremely accessible for all. The number of people served by the various initiatives at Omi is constantly inspiring.

The Brooklyn Rail: Ward Shelley (Artists Alum, 2002) in group exhibition, The Internal Machine

Wednesday, Dec 13, 2017

The curator, John Roach, has put together sixteen artists whose reconsideration of the book ranges from the manic scrapbook to the mechanically-reproduced codex. Ward Shelley and Douglas Paulson’s Archive Library v. I, (2012) sets up a barely-controlled system of correlating fake books with fictional archives. This is comically drawn out, with oil and toner on Mylar, in precariously stacked boxes which seem to fall over themselves trying to remain in their assigned places. Click here for more info.

The shopping list is a neglected artform. Humans have been writing them for centuries, yet one has never appeared in an anthology of literature. Critics haven't come to a consensus on a particular masterpiece of this genre. The artist David Shrigley, however, has transformed one grocery list into an eternal granite monument entitled Memorial, which will remain at Art Omi in Ghent for three years. - Chronogram

At a time when so much visual information is being dispatched, consumed, and digested, the auditory provides a compelling sensory experience that is capable of reorienting the body to consider spatial and interpersonal relationships anew.

Artsy: 11 of the World’s Most Inspiring Design Residencies

Thursday, Aug 03, 2017

Design moves forward through conversation, and residency programs tailored to design and craft-based disciplines play an instrumental role in nurturing that dialogue.
Not only do these programs give participants the luxury of time and space to work away from their day-to-day lives, they also bring together creatives working in various disciplines from all over the world, creating an environment where each individual is pushed to expand their own practice in a relatively short amount of time.
For those working in design, especially, having access to large studios and uncommon material processes offers a rare opportunity to refine their skills or even pursue new ones. Below, we gathered 11 leading residency programs that put design center stage. - Artsy

Tuesday, Apr 04, 2017

She was struggling with a sense of herself as an artist and had just about had it with it all. -Times Union

For Alex Schweder and Ward Shelley, the term “artist in residence” is often a very literal one: Collaborators since 2007, the pair practice what Schweder describes as “performance architecture,” or the exploration of how inhabiting a space affects us, psychologically.
