The Joan Mitchell Foundation, in collaboration with CUE Art Foundation, is pleased to announce an exhibition of its 2011 MFA Grant Program Recipients.  From June 7 - July 28, the 15 recipients will be showing current artwork at CUE Art Foundation.

The annual MFA Grant Program was created in 1997 to assist painters and sculptors who are receiving their MFA degrees. With these grants the Foundation aims to further the recipients' artistic careers and to aid, upon graduation, in the transition from academic to professional studio work. A complimentary catalogue, available at CUE's gallery, has been published on the occasion of this exhibition. The catalogue features works and bios for each artist and essays on their work by three writers: Kareem Estefan, Megan Hoetger, and Wendy Vogel.

Sarah Awad, University of California, Los Angeles

This year's MFA Grant Recipients Exhibition marks the tenth year of the Joan Mitchell Foundation's collaboration with CUE Art Foundation. CUE's generous contributions toward this partnership have enabled us to annually showcase the work of all MFA recipients.

The MFA Grant Program:
Each recipient received an MFA Grant in the amount of $15,000. To date the Joan Mitchell Foundation has awarded over 190 MFA Grants. These grants are given in recognition of artistic quality to artists chosen from a body of candidates put forth by nominators from the academic art community across the United States. In 2011, over 60 graduate programs were asked to nominate their top students. The nominated candidates' images were viewed for grant consideration through an anonymous process by a jury panel of artists and curators.

The Joan Mitchell Foundation:   
The Joan Mitchell Foundation was established in April 1993 as a not-for-profit corporation following the death of Joan Mitchell in October 1992. The Foundation celebrates the legacy of Joan Mitchell and expands her vision to support the aspirations and development of diverse contemporary artists. We work to broaden the recognition of artists and their essential contributions to communities and society.

Additional programs undertaken by the Foundation include free art classes for New York City youth, an annual grant to painters & sculptors, and grants to artists and arts communities in need of emergency support after a disaster. The Foundation has established the Joan Mitchell Center in New Orleans, which will be starting an artist in residence and currently offers programming that engages the local community.

Poster Design: Annie JingQian Lui

Joyce Chan’s raw materials are gleaned from her own personal index- the quotidien items from her parent’s Chinese restaurant- foil bags, eggroll wrappers, and tablecloths. In addition to eliciting notions of a very specific immigrant experience, these papers and fabrics interest Chan for the historic symbolism integrated into their colors and designs. Chan breaks the original materials down and re-works them, at times into a pulp, until they take on a new form-- the flimsy made solid, the rough made soft. These new forms participate in an evolved compositional presence, one that is solid, yet delicate, upon close inspection there is a deceptive impermanence, which, like memory, presents the risk of actually falling apart if handled too directly.- ML
